Graduation: A blessing and a curse

The semester is over, and many people are graduating from high school or college and moving on in their life.  I'm not graduating this spring, but I do have friends that are.  I'm sorry to see them go, yet happy for them as they pursue their dreams and goals.  This is definitely an emotional time and sometimes I'm not sure how best to handle it.  I think the best thing one can do is to move on with confidence and trust.  New friends will be made, new opportunities will arise, and the pain of parting will subside.  These comforting words can be hard to internalize in the moment, yet such is life: people come and go, relationships begin and end, and change is the only constant.

This definitely reminds me of The Beatles song "Hello Goodbye".

Here's to new beginnings! 

I had to end on a positive, cute note :-).  I took this picture just a few days ago in Champaign.
