Towards the end of last semester, I was starting to fall into a slump. It was hard to stay motivated and engaged in my coursework and extra-curricular activities. Somehow, I managed to make it through finals week and was able to enjoy a 2 week break for the holidays. But then of course, I registered for a winterim course… 1st semester was hard enough, and I voluntarily decided to come in during winter break to earn another 3 credits?!? I surely must be crazy!
But then, I remembered what my true motivation is, and why it is important for me to focus on my studies now and take the extra classes while I can… It’s my Love. He motivates me without even trying. By taking courses during the summer and winterim, I will be able to graduate sooner, which ultimately means we will be able to begin our life together sooner.
So even though these classes are a pain, it’s my Love that keeps me going. Every class (even during winterim), is one more step toward our future together.
What are some ways you stay motivated?
