Some of us are graduating this year and truly it is crazy to think about. We are ready to go out in this world and start “adulting”. Well most of us are, I know that I currently am on the “adulting” struggle bus every day. But that’s ok, I’m learning from the adult mistakes that I make, which is important.
Even today, I had my first dermatologist appointment. I put in the GPS where the building was and it took me to a different location at first. So then I go around and park at the building that I thought was it and went inside. Well turns out that it was the wrong building and where I was previously was the correct path, it was just the next building over. Freshman year Maggie would have flipped her mind and went back to the apartment in the midst of all this. But the important thing is that I found where I was supposed to go and was on time for my appointment.
I guess as it inches towards graduation, it’s important to remember that it’s okay to not only mess up but to go down a different path if you choose to. If you would have told me I’d be a sports social media director before entering college, I would have looked at you a little funky. But not all the way funky because I do still cheer on my Clemson Tigers in football, basketball, and baseball. I knew that sports were something that was in my heart all along, but I had no idea it would take me to where I am now while I’m writing this.
So what I want to say is if you are graduating in this season of life, you can do whatever you set your mind to. You are in charge of your destiny and you can choose to be positive about what direction you are headed in. For me, I know that I still have lots to learn and do. So, for now, I will just keep doing me and keep my head up in my career journey.
