Can you imagine what it will be like on the day you graduate from college? Maybe you are going for an undergraduate degree or a master’s or a Ph.D. What an amazing time that will be!
You have worked hard (hopefully) for four or six or more years that you can count. The day has arrived. Your family is waiting to watch you cross that stage in your cap and gown. This is the day you have been anticipating for so long.
Or not. A few years from now, you will be a few years older. Will you have your degree or will you still be wishing on a star? My friend, you are not getting any younger. Today is the youngest you will be for the rest of your life. Why not do it now?
When I got my Ph.D. a few years ago (three, to be exact), I was probably the oldest graduating student in the group. (Okay, so I was!) I had hoped to complete my degree while my folks were still alive, but my mother had passed at age 90 just a few months previously. Talking to a friend of mine about how proud she would have been brought me to tears. You don’t want that feeling, so do it now!
