Today is Memorial Day! I’ve been at my PhD studies for 6 years. I finished my first 3 chapters of my dissertation and am loading it here. Final proposal 5-14-2020 clean It represents so much work and a lot of time. A year ago I had my pilot study approved and here I am now waiting for the approval of my committee so that I can start writing the last 2 chapters, chapter 4 and chapter 5. Mindfulness has been a part of my PhD journey! I have tried to keep mindfulness with me throughout my classes and my school challenges. I am looking forward to finishing this journey.
