Grow

My words are as much encouragement for myself as for others. We all lose hope sometimes and we all stumble. Lets build each other up. Let your light shine!

January 11 I began my final semester at River Parishes Community College (RPCC). God willing, I will graduate with an assosiates in general studies with a concentration in arts and humanities in May. I am thrilled!

However, I must admit, this is hard.

For the most part, I was lucky enough to excel in school. I was able to keep above average grades easily, rarely even studing.

Now I am really feeling the effects of the cancer treatment.

I have trouble reading and speaking. I also write slow now, lest my handing is illegible. It has proved hard to keep up with the fast pace of the professors.

Many times I have just wanted to give up. I am behind in my studies and I am struggling to catch back up,

BUT

my professors are amazing and willing to work with me. They have both been so helpful in getting me through this semster.

Have I thrown myself into panic attacks because I am so scared I won’t catch up? Yes, yes I have. But then, after a panic attack, I step back and ask myself why it happened. What is of the utmost importance so I can go ahead and complete that assignment and then with a clear mind I can work on others too.

I WILL NOT GIVE UP

I will pass my classes.

I will graduate.

I will walk across the stage on May 15, 2018.

will receive my associates degree.

can and I will do this!

& YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

No matter what it is. I don’t mean just college graduation. I mean anything you set your mind to can be accomplished!

I love you all and thank you so much for taking the time to read my words,

Rachael
