Graduation or Promotion or Whatever

My daughter is graduating . . . sorry . . . “promoting” from 6th grade today. Already? Seriously? Is anyone ever ready for these various stages of life (or the stages of life of their loved ones). Dan Gilbert, in a recent Ted talk shared about this. He explained that we all succumb to “an illusion that history, our personal history, has just come to an end, that we have just recently become the people that we were always meant to be and will be for the rest of our lives.” Some are so confident that they can handle the next stage of life, yet in the face of that next stage, they find it is more difficult (or easier) than they imagined. Some struggle to advance in life because of resistance to graduate from one part of our life to the next. Just enjoy every moment!
