High school is over which means life is just beginning.
The world has been holding my hand, leading me though life and it has finally let go. Now the choices are endless and my hands are free to build my life into what I want it to be. I’m asked more questions and forced to make more decisions that at one time were decided for me. What happens in my life is decided by me and me alone.
I’ve always looked forward to gruaduation and the future. Having a job, living on my own, and doing what I want to do. I felt trapped in this tiny box wanting only to get out.
But now I am out and it’s not as cool as I had once thought. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t all bad. In fact, it’s mostly good. With this new freedom brings oppotunities and experiences that at one point were never possible. I just have to make the most of it.
At some point in life, everyone learns something the hard way. Don’t let that something be life.
Congratulations on graduating High School. I graduated not too long ago and basically had similar feelings. There’s not really much advice I can give, since I’m still wet around the ears when it comes to ‘the real world’.
Good luck on achieving your goals Matt.
(By the way, if you don’t mind, I would love to get in contact with you.)
