no rain… no rainbow

Sin lucha no hay victoria

Without struggle there is no victory and without rain there are no rainbows.  I love both of these sayings, and I’ve found myself repeating them to myself somewhat regularly, lately. Currently, I am doing my best to finish my thesis and find a job.  Each task can be a little overwhelming, but I try to remember that this isn’t the final product. In the end, my thesis is there to make me a better writer and a better scientist. I believe that putting so much into this task will be worth it and in the end will be the feeling that I’ve earned this degree.  The job search will likely continue on in this lovely job market, but it will not be for my lack of trying.
Do you have any quotes or saying you use as encouragement when overwhelmed?
