Summer has come to an end and reality is back in full swing.
During the first few days back at school, it felt like I’d never settle in as I had the last semester. Things are different now, there’s a change in the air…I’m graduating this year.
It’s not that I’m not optimistic about the prospect of what lies ahead, but rather the uncertainty, the unknown, makes me stand a little less tall.
I’ve always been the girl who knew what she wanted, and that was enough to go and get it. However, it has occurred to me that not everything in life is all that simple. Of course, hard work will always get you far, but it still might not be enough to achieve your wildest dreams.
Soon-to-be graduates, we have to remind ourselves that remaining strong, having faith and staying pursuant is as important as showing up and doing the job. You can’t just hope that the resume is going to do all of the talking, because let’s face it, it won’t. The easy part is almost done, it’s the putting-yourself-out-there that needs to be worked on. I’ll be working on it too.
Be bold and brave!
