The Importance of Reflection

As I approach the end of my college career, theres been countless lasts for me. These lasts are a constant reminder that a new stage in my life is approaching and the unavoidable change thats about to happen within the next year. Now, Ive never been very good at change. Yes, life is about rolling with the punches, but sometimes my roll turns into a bit of a stumble with a few bumps along the way. However I always adjust eventually. Instead of looking at graduation as a huge accomplishment, Ive turned it into a source of fearwhich is exactly the opposite of what it should be. Ive had to cope with the fear of the unknown after graduation and let me tell you, that process will be a constant one until the time actually comes and probably even after a little too.

But one thought that has given me comfort is the things that wont change in my life. The everlasting things college has given me. It has given me opportunityopportunity to achieve a good career. It has given me invaluable friendships that I can always count on. It has given me independencewhich is something I think everyone needs in order to be happy with their own lives and succeed. But most of all it has given me memories that I will cherish for a lifetime. Just because these are things college has given me, doesnt mean they are entirely finished. I think college is just one of the huge developmental things in my life that has both challenged me more than Ive ever been challenged, and rewarded me more than Ive ever been rewarded. College is an experience that I will always look back on with the fondest of memories. Ill end this post with the best thing I could end onGo Cougs!
