Congratulations graduates! I would also like to acknowledge all the family members, friends and teachers that supported, encouraged, taught and influenced their accomplishments.
Let's all take a trip back in time to our own graduation. Take a moment to remember what it was like when you graduated high school or college. Maybe you also completed a certificate program or a career designation. What was the feeling associated with your accomplishment? What was your experience having greater possibilities opened up for you? Along with the excitement, you probably also experienced some fear, concern or confusion about what was next.
What you have probably found as you moved through life is that the elation of an accomplishment can be short lived. The sobering reality is that you have really just begun. One more time, in an instant, you are on shaky ground.
The gap between what is and what's next is what I call the journey. Regardless of where you are in life it usually seems like there is always that fear or confusion about what's next even if you aren't a recent graduate. So much so, that it often keeps us stuck form moving forward on our original goals or dreams. Have you ever had that experience? I sure have.
One thing for sure is that you will always be a student of life. I invite you to consider a support structure along the way in your continued learning, integrating, moving, navigating. coordinating and negotiating the many twists and turns associated with this journey we call life.
I hope you will join me on this journey. Let's co-create the future!!! I want to be your partner in possibilities in Your Next Step!
