As parents, we all want to see our children graduate high school, attend college and become very successful. When I graduated high school I had so many plans, I wanted to go to college, and either become a lawyer (because I love to argue hah) or a private detective. I never made it that far though; I graduated high school and ended up getting a job. I had imagined myself going to college after high school, becoming a successful person. Sometimes though, things never work out as planned.
Growing up I was never encouraged to follow my dreams, or to further my education. I don’t want the same for my daughter. I want her to graduate high school, and then I want her to pursue her dreams. Whether it is big or small, I want her to go for it, and to know as long as she tries she can become whatever she wants to become.
I will encourage here from now until then to follow her heart. Who knows where I would be now if I followed my heart. Don’t get me wrong I love my life, I love being a mom, and a wife; however, I do wish I had a higher education, and I do not want my daughter to ever wish she had something, I want her to know she can have whatever she puts her mind to having.
How many of you will be attending a loved ones graduation here shortly?
