Today has been a culmination of life lessons. Lessons that I thought I knew and understood intimately, since I am always saying ‘we are not meant to be alone and having someone to share life moments with matter’.
Today, I experienced this to the N-th degree!
Today is my graduation day for my Masters Program, that I have worked on for some time.
So long that I think I forgot or was reluctant to be excited about it.
I wrote this post from my desk at work, while the graduation began and ended. I know this probably seems pretty crazy to some, most actually.
But it didn’t hit me until, I received a text message “CONGRATULATIONS” from a ‘New’ friend. I emphasize (new) only to point out that even she got the importance of this day while it still eluded me.
Arriving at work, was business as usual, or so I thought. My co-workers, who are actually my friends had planned a surprise celebration with cap, gown, cake and all the bells and whistles included.
How wonderfully sweet and thoughtful, I was truly emotional.
At that moment it hit me as an old lessons revisited, ‘It’s the people who make the difference, It’s the people who make a celebration’.
So this Thursday, I want to remind everyone and myself.
Every accomplishment in your life is great, but the people in your life truly make it a celebration.
Celebrate and love the people in your life.
What does this have to do with love? …EVERYTHING!
