The Meaning of Graduation

In June we are reminded of a certain right of passage we call, graduation.  Each year stores stock special cards, friends and family send announcements, and we mark our calendars when we plan to attend graduation ceremonies of those closest to us.  Memories come back to us of our own experience and the close of a childhood chapter in our lives as we approach the next challenge awaiting us; "Where do we go from here?".

Answering that question can take a life time.  Although there are some who know exactly what it is they want to do with the rest of their lives, many of us are overwhelmed by the possibilities as well as the consequences of possibly not making the right choice.  The important thing to do is to take the first step toward your future goals by writing them down and researching what it will take to get there.  After that it is simply putting one foot in front of the other and before you know it you are closer to your first goal.  Once you reach the first goal, repeat and continue without quitting.

Find something you feel passionate about and try to build your future around that and you will be successful. If you believe you can do that then eventually you will.  It will take hard work and in the end it will be worth it.  It is not always about the end result, what we learn in the process builds us up if we let it.

"Life is a journey and not a destination. " - Ralph Waldo Emerson
