I have a friend who needs a little support these days. She's doubting herself right about now, feeling like she isn't cut out for the work ahead. Life is more complicated for her than it is for most of her cohorts and she's dealing with more than just the task at hand. She's feeling overwhelmed and discouraged.

This is someone that I have known for what seems like forever. We met about twenty years ago and became good friends. We were lab partners and spent a ridiculous amount of time together as a result. And we will always be able to laugh about things that aren't funny to anyone else. Things that would most certainly offend the good sense of most people. Really, you had to be there. KBF forever!

It's been a long, hard road for her to get to where she is today. She's moved cross country to pursue her dreams. She's overcome countless struggles in this life, and she's done so keeping her sense of humor fully intact. She isn't jaded and cynical. She's quite the opposite in fact.

I know it's not easy right now. And it's not going to get easier. If anything, it will only get harder. But you can do this. And you should. If there is anything I can say with certainty this morning, it is this:

This is what you are meant to do.
