This weekend was my little sister’s high school graduation and open house. As I sat down at her commencement, I wasn’t overly excited to sit through close to 400 names being called off, but, of course, I was excited to be there to support her and her accomplishments. As I sat there and listened to her classmate’s (and one of her closest friends) commencement speech called “A Thousand Small Strides” I realized that this was hitting closer to home than the commencement speech I sat through for my own graduation. A great message and important to remember that life, dreams and goals are accomplished one stride at a time, not in one big step. Even if the end goal seems so distance, how much harder is it to make that next stride? There have been many ups and downs since I graduated high school and even since I graduated college, and it is nice to remember that even though it is hard to not focus on the future, living in the present and taking one small stride can lead to the ultimate goals. After a refreshing weekend with my family and boyfriend, I am excited for an amazing summer and dreaming big!
