Lombardi

today i was told that my work was rubbish. it made me want to throw in the towel after i've worked so hard and tried to get it up to the standard desired. obviously, it wasn't enough. almost i quit, but no, i won't. i won't let one person who thinks i'm uneducated decree my future, or my present for that matter.

Vince Lombardi says
the harder you work, the harder it is to surrender

i've worked really hard, and am going to work harder. surrender is not an option. this isn't about winning and loosing, it's about conquering.


"It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner."

Yes! You stand strong! We'll do it together. I had a similar experience today.

Jesus knows what we are, peoples opinions mean nothing compared to Jesus' and he thinks everything of you. He's put you there and given you the gifts you've got so keep that.

Love you x

if this is about academia again, believe me: i know the feeling. (if it's about something else, i know that feeling, too.)

but vince lombardi is right (never thought i'd say those words!). hang in there.
