The Best View Comes After the Hardest Climb

We all have goals in life. And we all have different ways of achieving what we have set and making things happen. For a professional teacher like me, my goal is to set a difference in what I do. However, along with the quest of making a difference is also a great challenge. This challenge is what keeps me going.

They say learning is a continuous process. It is, indeed. And it is my belief that in order for a teacher like me  to keep teaching young minds, there is also a need for me to constantly educate myself. Thus, the decision to enroll in post-graduate studies. It's been almost two years. The closer I get to the finish line , the harder the process has become. And if there's one thing that I love about this thesis writing thing, it's the way it challenges my patience.

When I was through with my Title Proposal Defense (which was my first, by the way) early last month, I felt like I've already done a lot. The feeling must have rooted from the fact that it was my first time to do it because when I was in college I have never gone through it. We wrote a lot of news articles instead of a book. I am really grateful though that I am experiencing it now. I find thesis writing a sensible way of addressing different problems that we, teachers actually encounter in school on a day to day basis.

"The best view comes after the hardest climb."I've posted this image (which I found from the Internet) on my Facebook wall the night before my Title Proposal Defense. And however other people look at it, to me it's a motivation. And I'll cling on to this message till I get to hear woodwindbrasswind playing while I march on March (see, I am that optimistic) and see the best view -- in time.
