Keeping Perspective...

Well... I was lying in bed... worry about my upcoming exams... and suddenly, I thought back over my whole life. I am almost 30... its been a pretty long time. Thats when I realized that in the scope of my existence... these next couple weeks are pretty insignificant. In fact, law school itself isn't all that important. Its just something I am doing right now.... My life has been very good. I am quite happy with many of my experiences. I have many more things that I want to experience... but nothing "hangs in the balance" ... this is not a life or death situation. Sure, some opportunties may come and go, and I do want to do as well as possible... but my life is full, and happy, and all I need to do is put forth a bit of effort, confidently, and with the assurance that in the perspective of all the years I have already been on this earth...and the many more I have ahead of me... this next week or two are not pivotal. I am more than just my grades. A lot more.

Well said. All too often law students see their whole futures reflected in their grades and that just isn't the case. I try to tell myself (though sometimes unsuccessfully) that my life was perfectly fine before law school. If, for some reason, I end up doing horribly and either am forced to leave law school or voluntarily give it up, it won;t be the end of the world. There are other options out there. Life will go on.
