A Letter To Myself on My High School Graduation

I feel weird writing this letter to you seeing how you aren’t ever going to read this because time travel isn’t a thing yet, even though that would be super cool. I thought that it would be fitting to write you this letter since I will be graduating college in May.

It is so crazy and scary, the thought of graduation. There is so much unknown that comes along with it, but you already know that. A am currently thrilled and terrified at the same time, pretty much exactly how you are feeling right now. I (we) have never really been too fond of these transitional periods in life. I have come to find out that we like having a plan for things and how they are going to work out. Which is totally fine there is nothing wrong with that.

I am so proud of you for graduating and making it through senior year. I can tell you, that looking back that you have build friendships what will last a very very long time. We are so lucky that we have so many great friends because not that many people find those, you know the ones that stick around. These ones do and it is really awesome to know that they are there. Remember that. They are there.

Also, another thing that you need to remember is to not give up. Just remember that everything happens for a reason and everything is going to work out just fine. Things are going to get stressful and I’ll tell you right now that college wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, because it really is a lot of hard work. You are going to do awesome, but there are going to be a lot of challenges a long the way.

Here is something we learn along the way:

You shouldn’t have to dread coming to school every day. Learning is one of the most wonderful things the world has to offer. Never stop learning. One of the most annoying things about this is sitting a class, that you are paying for now and not even wanting to learn about it. Sure you have to take certain things like English and things like that but do not be afraid to change your major. We went through a whole horrible year before we realized how unhappy we were with what we were learning about and we finally did something about it.

It was one of the best decisions we have made because not only are we passionate and happy about where we are now but we have also made friends and are just a lot more happier with where we are now.

I just want you to keep this in mind are you go about the next chapter in life. Right now you are probably thinking “hey, why don’t you just tell me exactly what happened and not be so vague, so I can get it right the first time” And while this may be true, I believe it is important for for it to happen the way it did. It all worked out in the end for the most part and that’s all that matters.

“Everything will be okay in the end, if its not okay, its not the end.”

Just remember that quote because it is so true and has proved to be my life motto, along with:

“Look good, Feel good, do good”

Just some words to live by for the future! 😉



PS: Drive around more even though mom isn’t a fan of the whole “driving thing” and it makes her nervous, it will help.
