As this school year comes to an end, and chapter banquets, award ceremonies and graduations are underway, it is easy to have a mindset of reflection. Whether you are reflecting on your failures or successes, the people you have met along the way, or maybe your growth as an individual, keep in mind that even after the ups and downs, you’ve made it! Another year is in under your belt and now it is time to say, “What’s next?”
Many of these events mark the end of the year, but they also mark the beginning of a new year. It is important to reflect on the past, and likewise, look ahead to the upcoming year and all that is in store. Now is the time to set new ambitious goals, and make the plans to meet those goals. Tell yourself one thing you look forward to and more importantly, how you plan to make it the best experience possible. There is no better time to make your dreams become reality, and I have faith that you can make it possible.
Many will get caught up in how the year is over and be sad that it has come to an end. I challenge you to instead be eager for the start of a new year.
