As I mentally prepare myself for my graduation from Bowdoin College this Saturday I thought that it would be nice, as well as uplifting, to reflect on 14 lessons/things/people/sayings from this year that I am so grateful for and that have truly changed me. I feel like 14 is an appropriate number because I am a part of the Class of 2014 now and I couldn’t be happier 🙂
1. Recovery 2. Family 3. Friends (new & old) 4. This blog 5. My team of mental health professionals
6. Learning how to recognize what matters most versus something that deserves a “so what” 7. Appreciating the little things 8. Learning to trust myself again 9. Sunny days 10.Embracing and appreciating imperfection 11. The ability to inspire others 12. Sleep…everyone functions better if they get their 8 hours! 13. The warm and loving welcome I received upon returning to college 14. My amazing education
Thank you to everyone who has aided me in my recovery and in my return to college. I don’t know what I would do without all of you….I definitely wouldn’t be here today! So, I think that it’s time to cheers to the Class of 2014, one of the best ones yet, and let’s look forward to all the amazing things in our future!
