Life is an Occasion; Rise to it!

Finishing school definitely feels a bit surreal. I know that most people graduate from college these days so it may not seem like a big deal, but it feels good to finish what I started 12 years ago. I always wanted to go to college and not sure where along the road I thought I'd lost the dream. Turns out dreams etched deep inside don't go away that easily even when you fight it.

I made it official on May 21, 2011 and decided you're never to old to walk across the stage in a cap and gown. I was lucky enough to celebrate the day with some of my very favorite people and felt accomplished, loved, relief, inspired, closure.

Now, I'm working to figure out "what's next?" and honestly, I'm in no huge rush. I'm hopeful life's next step will be unquestionably clear. I usually feel it deep inside when something is right. In the meantime, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying my extra free time. Life is so good.

P.S. I actually finished before I turned 30!
