Graduation, whether from grade school, high school, or college, has all the same elements to it. This is really one of the only times in your life that really ARE all about you! You have succeeded in showing up, doing what you needed to do, and you are being rewarded for it. Life is great, isn’t it? Graduation is an individual achievement. You’re the one that chose to do the work. You could have taken the easy way out, you could have given up, but you didn’t!
I know the future can be a bit uncertain at this point, whether you have a plan or not. You can be confident in your choice, but there’s still a bit of uneasiness about how it’s going to play out. You’re unfamiliar with what the next step brings, but that’s okay. Everybody is; don’t let them fool you. You are all going to be starting on the same page again. What you choose to do from there is, once again, all up to you.
Look back on this day and remember: YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! You got here, didn’t you? Decide what you want, figure out how to get it, and GO DO IT.
Congratulations and Best of Luck to You!
