Seeing as I am a senior and soon ending the required level of education that I am called to do in this great country of ours, I feel it is important to write a reflection of what, in my opinion, all learn from the experience that is coming of age. It's a monumental point in life that is often covered in a thick fog of confusion and conflict, and in the end it shapes the adult that one would be one day. So upon entering the world I share universal truths, ones not necessarily learned in a classroom.
Either except the world as it is, or change it.
Love is not an emotion, it's principle.
True friendship has an open mind, and values more then just what you have to bring to the table.
Passion is found, not force.
In a world where kindness is weakness, kindness is more important then ever.
Happiness is just as important as pain.
If you're not taking care of yourself, you have no hope of taking care of others.
Perfection does not exist, so stop looking for it.
Remember that the Journey is just as important as the Result.
Never underestimate the power of sweater weather.
Never let your problems follow you too your dreams.
Peace in the home is worth more then gold.
Know yourself and life will follow likewise.
