Graduations especially, cause me to reflect on the many opportunities and choices that are available to those who seek, even to those who don’t think they have any opportunities. Deciding on what your next step is, is a choice, your choice. Seeking out resources and even beating the bushes to find them is a choice. A choice you make saying that you will not give up or quit, but to move forward the best that you can. You are starting a new beginning! Maybe that is starting a new job, an apprenticeship to learn a skill or craft, college or university, trade school, or going on a journey to learn about other parts of the world and cultures. This is all part of learning. Making choices is often making your own opportunities! Once you locate resources, it is up to you to use them wisely so that you reach your end goal and hopefully without tons of debt. You have lots of choices, all leading to a new beginning. Choices upon choices —that is what life is about! Choose wisely.
