Observe: I have graduated!
I finally got my wings
So yesterday I graduated college! I had been in school for 6 long, hard, never-ending years and I am unbelievably excited to be done. I never thought I’d see this day, there were times the way ahead was so dark, I thought I’d never see the light but “FREE at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I’m free at last!”
Today’s post will be a bit inspirational. I want to encourage you all. Keep going. Whether that’s reading or work or college or just being — keep going. It may seem that you’ll never reach the end….keep going.
I graduated two years late. So all my friends I came in to college with have all graduated and have grown-up jobs. I was upset. Bitter. Angry. But I kept going. And guess what. My friends, the true friends…still supported me! They congratulated me like I came out on time with them. They were understanding when I didn’t go see them graduate two years ago because I was so upset that it wasn’t me. Through it all, they encouraged me. They encouraged me to keep going.
That’s the most sound advice I can offer. Keep going. Keep trying! Keep pushing on. Keep going. You will reach your goals. Maybe it’ll take longer than anticipated or planned. But keep going. Always.
“When the sky is darkest, you can see the stars. When you fall the hardest, you find how strong you are. Close your eyes, rest a while, it’s been a long, long day. ….have a little faith.”
