Graduation is just around the corner. This rite of passage is an important milestone in every young adult’s life - the transition from student to adult, the movement from the safe environment of school to the real world.
I have some thoughts I’d like to share with the graduating class…
Be flexible. This one attribute can make all the difference in your future dealings with people in your life, on the job and in the community. Don’t bend over backwards to please people, but when situations change and plans go awry, be flexible enough to come back and keep going.
That said, always have at least one backup plan. Life doesn’t always go exactly the way we want it to (surprise!) and it is good to have some options available - the more the better.
Laugh...I heard a speaker say not that long ago that if you’re going to laugh about it five years from now, laugh NOW! When it seems like life is throwing you curve balls and raining on your parade - laugh. Humour can make any situation more tolerable and easier to handle.
Have fun. Life can be serious, worrisome and depressing, if you want it to be. Or, it can be one exciting adventure after another. It’s your choice.
Congratulations to the Class of 2003!
