What doesn't kill us, make us stronger...

I made this friday while one of the pHDs of my lab was defending her thesis...

this is for her...

"When we start something, specially a long project, we don't have the slightest clue of how it will turn out...the problems, the wrongs, and the rights... we can only try to get a head start or a wild guess...but we cannot predict what will happen...and as time goes by we can only dance to the rythm of his unique tune, trying to avoid the "feet" of our unseen partner.
Time...time is not a kind teacher, nor a forgiving one, and he will flow against all our wishes and prayers. To stand the test of time and endure the pain it may cause with his flowing takes a lot of strenght, determination and courage. But even more courage is needed to stand after the ground has been pulled under our feet...to continue to walk after being knoncked down and finish what we started (what seems a lifetime ago...).
However, the joy of seeing this through...to watch what we imagined to take form and grow beyond ourselves, may, somewhat, make it all worthwhile...and even though there are things that leave a mark so deep that seem to sufocate all around us, the strenght and determination that carried us this far WILL carry us on again through good and bad times...

What doesn't kill makes us stronger...."
