Career Coach: Life Lessons
A synonym for graduation is commencement. One of the meanings of commencement is beginning or start. Truly high school graduation means saying goodbye to teachers and others who influenced you as a teen. It is a time of endings. But it is also a time of beginnings -- of venturing into the unknown. Graduation is a time of transition -- a time of making choices that can have a big impact on your life. It's time to begin a new phase of life.
I want to thank all the teachers who made a difference in my life, both at school, at work and at home. Whether they were friends or not, they had an impact on me.
Who are the teachers who made an impact in your life? Take the time to thank them for helping you grow and learn, whether you're a recent grad or not.
