“The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse.” – Edward Koch
Graduating from high school or college is an exciting adventure. It’s the big reward to sticking it out when there were days when you thought you couldn’t possibly understand what was being thrown at you.
Graduation is taking the next big step in life and it’s similar to one giant door opening and of course, one closing. Your daily routine and life as you know it is going to change.
That can be scary for some. You may feel apprehensive or assume that now that you have accomplished this major feat that life will be a breeze. There will be challenges.
For the days when the challenges seem overwhelming, here’s some sage advice for the new graduate.
Today’s Sunday Inspiration: Don’t let fear limit what you have to offer the world. It’s important to acknowledge fear when it is present, feel it and discover where it comes from, and then move on.
“It takes courage to change direction. Choose the path your heart agrees with and walk with your head high and your eyes open. Don’t be afraid.” – Message from God App
