Happy Graduation Day!
Happy Graduation Day!

Since graduation day is coming up for many, I thought I'd take this moment to reflect on my last ‘round a hand full of years ago.

1. I'm the kind of gal who wears her cap pointed up, not flat.  I don't know why but I got a lot of grief about pulling off a look at my high school graduation and both college graduations.  Cheers to all the guys and gals who want to look cute!  It's okay!  Don't let people dull your shine.

2. It's never too late to go back to school again...and again.  There's no limit on your desires and there's absolutely NO timeline.  You're living a life that's uniquely yours.

3. Change your plans 1,000 times, if you want.  An affirmation, "I live life according to my own expectations, not the expectations of others". Only you can know what's right for you.  Release the weight and the voices telling you your experience is supposed to look a certain way.  You're not crazy.  You're right on track.  In fact, if people tell you you're crazy, it's probably a good sign you are on track.

4. Celebrate yourself every chance you get!  Every day you make choices for your future self.  Sometimes, the days can be tough and you may feel unworthy of the dreams you DARE to chase.  That's why self-love and self-compassion is a daily practice.  The more you do it, the better you'll get.  The better you get, the less the tough moments will turn into days or even seasons.  You are worthy, my lovely.  You are SO damn worthy!

Happy graduation to everyone moving from one chapter into the next.  You write your story, babies!
