It's graduation time!
Who is taking that big step in your family this year? What an exciting time for the newly minted to go forth and explore our world. Not an easy time out there, but sometimes you just have to jump into the fray.
I know it can be scary and daunting. So many kids have no idea what they're doing, or how they'll fit in. I know I felt like that when I was graduating from University of Michigan (all those years ago!), and I'm sure it's even harder these days, given the state of the world. Despite the "improving" economy, plenty of people are still out of work and wondering how they'll ever get by. All I know is that attitude can make a difference, and a can-do one will serve you well, even in what seems like your darkest days.
Consider life an adventure! Every experience you have shapes you into the person you are today, and who you will become tomorrow. It is a cumulative effect. Nothing that you go through is a loss. Nothing is a waste of time. The things that turn out badly are learning experiences, and the things that bring you joy are your treasured memories, that are with you, always.
Savor today, look forward to tomorrow and realize that nobody has this thing called LIFE all figured out. We all just do the best we can, and go on. And try to make our moments count.
Blessings to you. All the best. Go with joy and commitment.
And go be the best YOU you can be.
