Do you remember what it was like when you graduated from high school? Do you recall the anticipation, the excitement, the uncertainty? This time of year I can’t help but get a little nostalgic when I start receiving graduation announcements in the mail and seeing graduation party supplies in stores. It reminds me of the times in my life when I’ve stood in my cap and gown, both excited and a little anxious at the same time.
When I graduated from high school there was the excitement of moving away from home for the first time to attend college. It may have only been an hour drive from my home to the college I attended, but it seemed a lot further to me back then. There were the goodbyes to all my childhood friends followed by the budding of new friendships. I was slowly starting to gain my independence, even though I spent many of my weekends back home with my family.
When I graduated from college it was an entirely different experience for me. I had done it. I had a college degree…but now what? Reality set in and as proud as I was of what I had accomplished, I knew it was time to spread my wings and fly on my own. It was time to make it or break it!
When I look back over the course of my life, there are only a handful of moments like these. Moments in life when I found myself standing at a crossroads, knowing my life was about to change forever. It’s these unforgettable moments that truly make us who we are that should be celebrated. Not just when they happen, but on days like today when I’m reminded of them.
