Dear Kid,

If You're Going Through Hell, Keep Going. W Churchill Life in college is not always easy. DearKidLoveMom.comCollege life is not always easy. There are days that seem to sail along with everything in place. And there are days that feel designed to make your world as difficult as possible.

Not to rain on your parade, but real life is like that too.

If you’re going through hell, keep going. ~Winston Churchill

The good news is that that when you’re in the midst of a string of days that feel like glass-entirely-empty-days-when-you’ve-just-come-back-from-a-10-mile-run, glass-overflowing-with-good-stuff days will show up. No promises on how quickly, but they will happen.

The trick is to keep going and not let dehydration take over.

A bend in the road is not the end of the road… unless you fail to make the turn. ~Author Unknown

A bend in the road is not the end of the road...unless you fail to make the turn. College life isn't always easy. DearKidLoveMom.comFor years, college students have been coming to the end of a semester, encountering ridiculous amounts of work, less than ideal professors, incomprehensible assignments, and somehow making it through. You don’t have to go it alone, Kid. There are people who’ve been down this road and know where the turns are.

There are also people who know how to teach, tutor, and organize on campus. If your instructor(s) isn’t one of them, go find someone who is.

Mom Advice: Take a deep breath, be sure to eat lunch, and get through one step at a time.

Love ya’ Kiddo!

Love, Mom
