hard why

I have been working on my hard why for a while, with the October topic coming up, I decided that this month will be the month for me to put it in words. This is what my brain has come up with:

I want to find out what I can do in my life as a woman, mother, physician and scientist
if I manage my mind to take risks, experience failure, persist in my willingness to grow and stretch myself,
view discomfort as my currency to living a wild and precious life, and support other women with a vengeance.

And now I apparently need to see it typed out on this webpage. Thank you. So very much.
