Serenely Climbing

Hari ni I had a little meltdown. Bkn psl belajar, tp psl benda kecik2, but nevertheless related to my work so it all added up into my head. Things were just not going may way! But thanks to a few people I talked to, I felt much calmer and motivated. I totally forgot that sometimes, you really just needed someone who goes through the same crap to know how the stuff really stinks. And it made me feel kinda normal again to know taht everyone else yg buat PhD pon feels the same. Plus dpt belated Bday card today, so that kind of buffered the emotions a bit. Balik2 terus rasa re-charged.

There are things that happened today that boiled my blood, but some things I can change and there are things I must leave it as is (at least for the time being). Mulling over it is never going to do anything good. So Lord, please give me strength to change the things that I can change, the serenity to accept the things that I cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit,
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns.

And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow ,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

(C.W. Longeneker)

On the same note, a friend of mine (K Mar who came to visit us in April) had passed her viva exam today. Woo hoo! I am super-jealous now, but in a good way. More reasons to kerja rajin2 now.

Ok la, gotta go. I'll leave you guys today with the anthem song of all PhD students - apa lg kalo bkn Miley Cyrus' 'It's the Climb'.
