Rejoice and appreciate on the graduation day

No graduation ceremony is complete without a proper academic regalia and tassels for graduation. It is a day to memorize and enjoy for the graduate and also for the family of the graduate to be. If you are a swollen with pride parent whose son is going to get a high school degree then there are so many reasons for you to rejoice. Go and let no stones unturned in making the day extraordinary for him. After all he is your own child so why should you step back from doing it.

Gifts for his success: Your son has a high school graduation degree in his hand now. Surely he is a grown up person now but it does not provide you with a reason that he is grown up and does not need any admiration. It is a natural human tendency to hear good words of appreciation and approbation. Children no matter they are in kindergarten or high school, they will expect gifts and presents from the parents. And when your son has a high school degree in his hand then it means that you will have to be very selective in choosing a gift for him.

Do not worry because you are not the only parent whose is having this confusion of finding the right gift for their son. The best idea is to do an online search. You will get many options and idea to help you out with the final decision.

Some gift options are as follows:

Open a bank account for them: Your son has done all his academic studies and is quite possible that he might do some further research work or do some writing or teaching. All this means that he will need books and journals. He will need money to follow his dream. If you want your son to gather more accolades then let money not be a problem in his research. Let him be engrossed into his books without thinking about the burden of money. One day you will be more proud of him. Put some money in his account on monthly basis and let him know that you will be there for him in all ways of life.

Arrange a party in his honour: Now since you have bestowed him with the most exceptional gift then also think about the most unique graduation party. One thing is sure that your son is mature now and does not believe much in partying and night outs. So keeping with his mood and likings it is better that you host a party only for some selected persons. When the guest list is small then it is better that you arrange a very good party. You can choose a good restaurant and book table or two according to the number of guests. Keeping a party in the restaurant will save your energy and time from arranging things on your own.

Always bear one thing in mind that it a normal human tendency to hear words of appreciation and see people rejoicing for him.

Advices to tackle graduation

Few days back I had attended the high school graduation ceremony of two cousins of same family. It was a historical day in the life of those two and also their families. It was a day of reflection and pride. There were many shining faces all in the High school cap and gown. All were looking alike with colored regalia for high school graduation and those diploma covers held in there diploma covers and bright faces with promises of tomorrow. The energy which this fresh bunch of students radiated is what made them different. There was so much enthusiasm and zeal in them that they looked different from the others who were present as guests.

The whole ambience reminded me of my own graduating ceremony and suddenly a whole ocean of emotions dashed against my memories. It was a romantic time where the moment is going to gift you a new life forever. The past is going to be wiped out forever and this feeling evokes an all together a new mixed feeling of great relief and sadness. There is yet another positive feeling for welcoming future. The future seemed uncertain and clueless, but there was an anxiety to face it.

The whole celebration is over. The band has played its famous beat, friends and families have taken pictures of day, and parents have recorded the whole view. Every one has done their part to make the most of the day. The final time comes now, when everyone will hug each other with a promise to stay connected forever. With heavy heart friends part with tears in eyes but with a promise that tomorrow is another day.

You are left alone surrounded only with your parents and siblings. The friends have all left and gone like yesterdays. Now is the time when you badly need someone’s wise maxims to guide you through the way of life.

If I were to give advice to these fresh graduation students, then my advice would have been:

Never in your entire life do anything primarily for money. Happiness will never come in your way if you are money minded. Do those things in which you have interest and passion for. Listen to your heart and follow your instinct then only happiness will chase you. The proverb holds true, never chase money, and let money chase you. Try sharing knowledge with others as it will increase your depth of knowledge. Share your feelings, intellect and time with someone who most desires it. This will earn you appreciation and reward. The shortest way for a successful life is earning spiritual wealth and not material wealth. Share your joys and sorrows with others. Never lose your cool no matter how angry you are with others. Try to be friendly and compassionate with one if front of you. Speak well and act good, this goodness towards others will come to you in leaps and bound. Make the best use of your knowledge and never take short cut to success. Thee short cuts in life will always land you in trouble. The old saying holds much truth, ‘slow and steady wins the race.’
