When the going gets rough, I often attempt to lift my spirits through my outfit choices. 

Sweatshirts with statements such as "We will," "Harmony: where chaos and peace come together," and of course, "Bon Courage," make regular appearances. 

As finals week quickly approaches, I found "Bon Courage" most fitting. A French phrase, it's most commonly used to express encouragement during time of difficulty. Think a deeper version of good luck. 

So take heart--conquer those exams, papers, reports. Conquer those intimidating, demanding tasks. 

Emerson once said: What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.

Let's do this. Bon courage.
