A New Beginning
Many of us still remember the first days of elementary and middle school clearly- and to think that this fall we will have left high school, working towards what will be the result in our futures. Since the start, we’ve became comfortable with school year after school year, yet the most difficult aspect of all is the year where this comfort will be lost. It is already the end of March and each of us are two months away from beginning our adult lives and working towards what will be the future of our lives. The idea is scary but very much exciting when it comes to thinking about where we will all be in a few years from now in our own unique paths.
Setting Up Our Paths
So we’re moving towards college; we are officially adults now taking care of ourselves. We choose what we want to do with our lives and we choose our schedules and have responsibilities now. Each of us are waiting to hear back from our dream schools, hoping for the best, but the most important thing is to not become discouraged if it doesn't pan out the way we planned. In this highly emotional time, we should remember to be happy for others, don't become jealous and understand that everything happens for a reason and that the path you’re meant to go down is always going to be the best for you.
A college rejection is not the end of one's dreams, but rather the fire one can use to move forward and go harder than ever before- use this moment as a spark to push your limits to prove those college rejections wrong. Colleges do not determine your success; it's the individual who decides what their future will compose of that determines success. Do what you love and surround yourself by those who want you to succeed. The next few months are the start for you to find who you really are.
