I am getting ready to go to our grandson’s graduation party. This is an exciting time for all the high school and college graduates as they end one phase of their lives and move into another, and we are thrilled for Justin, who had a stellar high school career and is going to SMU in Dallas to study theatre and political science.
There have been, and will continue to be, commencement addresses that will contain kernels of wit and wisdom for the graduates to carry with them into this new adventure, so I won’t try to write an entire treatise here. But I do offer this bit of advice.
Stay focused on the ultimate goals you have set for yourself, but don’t forget to enjoy the journey. That takes a bit of delicate balancing, but worth it when you reach the destination and you know you haven’t missed anything along the way.
And specifically for Justin, “Break a leg.”
