December 14, marks a memorable day for me because 3 years ago today I walked across a stage and received my college diploma! That day I achieved my main goal in life. You see when I was younger I was told by doctors that I would never aspire to such goals. But that day I proved every one of them wrong and with each step I took across that stage made it that more powerful!
On the day of graduation a good friend of mine bet me that I would be back in 3 years for grad school (I insisted I wouldn’t and no I’m not going back). School never really was my thing. For most people, college is about finding yourself and finding out who you want to become, but I always knew who I was and what I wanted out of life.
The bet meant more than a simple bet because on that day he knew I had achieved my greatest goal and that walking across that stage was all I ever really wanted. Of course, that’s not saying that he wouldn’t have been thrilled if I had chosen to go to grad school. He knew I would do anything I set my mind too.
Now this day is a great reminder of all of that. I will remember that day for the rest of my life.
