The Milestone of A Graduation
It took us only a million milestones to get us where we are today, whether that was just crawling as a kid, first school game, clearing exams, first kiss, etc. But you cannot fathom what role graduation can play in our lives. This one milestone can change us as a person, and add so much in our world that we never knew was missing.
Graduation shaping our personality
The way we see ourselves can change when you start thinking about your past, your experiences and what more you want to do in life. Graduation means, this is real. Life is going to keep going and only you can change its course and make it worth the while. Of course, there might be a spell of anxiety and confusion at first. OR you have it all planned and figured out. No matter what the case, it's the start of a new life and a new, more devoted and serious you.
Imagine, it's graduation day. It's a good day, nice weather, you wake up and realize after a few moments after opening your eyes that this is the day! This is it, all you've been working for, the sleepless nights, the anxiety of exams, so many friend funds and a bunch load of memories. All that reflecting in your eyes this day. You get up, there's that dress lying up perfectly you bought especially for your big day.
When you walk through those halls and corridors, there's a different vibe to them now. You can't seem to put your finger on it, the feeling, but it's just not the same. Everything's been decorated, you meet up with your friends, sit with them on those allotted seats. The ceremony begins. One by one they all get on that stage, your name gets called, you get this funny feeling in your stomach, your heart races as you go receive your diploma.
That proud moment, just priceless. And the look on your parents' face, your siblings, your family, so precious.
Role of family
It takes a lifetime to realize the importance of family in our lives. We become so oblivious of the fact that every success, every step of life, every accomplishment is directly or indirectly linked to our family. But it's inevitable and a sad fact of this modern world. Our parents being our number one fan since we were born and cheering us on as we go along our journeys. It isn't just the finances that get you going, it's the encouragement, both in the form of constant scolding and words of wisdom. No one other than our families can give us that.
