It's finally Friday, and boy has this week been busy! Between work and class, I have had not much time to do anything else but eat and sleep! It all started with last weekend...I graduated from Carthage! There were 2 ceremonies that my family and I got to go to on Sunday. The first was a speech given by the Lutheran bishop of Chicago. It was very nice and he was very inspirational.
Let me back up a bit...before the first speech, Andrew (and my parents) and I stopped by the Chapel Office to say hi to Debbie and Kristin. Debbie was my boss on campus and my second mom throughout college. She helped me through so many obstacles that there is no way I could have gotten through it without her. I will definitely miss seeing her every day and talking to her about everything!
Here is Andrew holding up a yearbook. His picture is on the top right of the left page!
Our first stop was sushi; yes, they had veggie sushi!
Throughout all of this, yoga has really helped me stay calm. Through practice, I have learned that when something goes wrong, look at it in a different light. Don't sweat the small stuff, because if that is the worst thing that has happened to you during the day, then consider yourself lucky. Many times, we see things for how bad they are instead of how good everything else is. Be thankful for what you have (or don't have) and live life to its fullest potential. You never know what you can do until you try!
