I know several people who hate to celebrate their birthdays. I’m sure you do as well. I’m not one of those people – I would celebrate every major and minor holiday and every family birthday or anniversary with my immediate family if they lived in the same city as me.
The passing of time happens so quickly and days, weeks, months, and years can meld into each other. That’s why I think it’s so important to celebrate graduation!
This is a sponsored post brought to you by Basic Invite – the fabulous online marketplace where you can order graduation photo cards, thank you cards, baby announcements, and so much more! I really love their selection of business-related stationery, too! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online.
No one is an island and it takes a village to raise a child – that’s why I really appreciate the idea behind college thank you cards. My family gave me so much financial and emotional support throughout my college and university days. I know that I definitely could not have successfully graduated without their assistance.
Acknowledge the Achievement
So much time, energy, and money goes into college or university. No matter what happens after graduation (whether or not the graduate secures a job in their field or whether or not they choose to pursue further education), it’s important to acknowledge the achievement of graduating.
I’m sure you’ve heard someone say that they’ll celebrate when they achieve the next big goal (like getting an interview, or getting a job, or getting into graduate school). The problem with this is – it may leave someone feeling like they have to always keep going after the next big thing. I am a strong believer in celebrating along the way. And celebrating while you can. Maybe after the graduate has moved on to graduate school their graduation won’t seem so important.
Allow your Biggest Supporters to Celebrate you and Your Achievements
Send out graduation party invitations to your friends and family and you’ll be surprised by how many “yeses” you’ll get back. The most important people in your life will want to celebrate you and your achievements.
For my university graduation, my mom, brother, and best friend attended the ceremony and we went out for dinner afterward. For my high school graduation, I had a big cake and celebration at my grandmother’s house with extended and immediate friends and family.
