Dear Graduate

Dear Graduate

Dear Graduate,

I see you. I see your photos wishing for one more year. I see your laughter and tears wondering what life will look like without the friends who have grown to feel family. And believe me, I see your fears. Fears of not knowing what the heck you are doing and what in the world adulthood officially looks like.

The message was what you may expect, stories on defeating the dirty little minions in your head and world and taking that big ole leap into braver pastures. She talked about being brave in your Yes’s and your No’s and when to Let Go and Hold On. She shared the importance in surrounding your self with people, exploring your talents, and believing the words that may get you to bravery. But there was one message that really struck a chord with me – bravery comes in the smallest of acts to the largest of leaps. And that simple idea brought me to my 2017 words – Brave and Celebrate. Now lets dig in. Continue reading “Brave & Celebrate”
