My Graduation Playlist

is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally fly out the door. It's getting to work with people you love. Success is connecting with the world and making people feel. It's finding a way to bind together people who have nothing in common but a dream. It's falling asleep at night knowing you did the best job you could. Success is joy and freedom and friendship. And success is love."~Fame


The Climb - Miley Cyrus

'There's always gonna be another mountain, I'm Always gonna wanna make it move.lways gonna be an uphill battle, sometimes I'm gonna have to loose.
I Lived - One Republic

'With every broken bone, I swear I lived'

 Fight Song - by Rachel Platten

'Like a small boat, on the ocean, sending big waves, into motion. 
Like how a single word can make a heart open. 
I might only have one match...put I can make an explosion.'

 And all the those things I didn't say.
Wrecking balls inside my brain...
I will scream them loud tonight!
Can you hear me this time?!
This is my fight song.

 and I don't care if nobody else believes.
cause I've still got a lot fight left in me.'

When I was born seeds of concern where sewn into my mother's heart. The nurses were concerned and they shared it with her, just a little after birth.  Maybe they had the best intentions and wanted to prepare her for the challenges ahead raising a child who is different. What did happen though, is they but quite a lot of fear into a new mom.

I am the first of my generation to go this far educationally. The first to earn this degree. If I were not on this planet, my family would not have this moment. Not that they are too concerned, my mother is, she sees and respects the value of continued education. That's quite okay, this isn't for everyone else. this is MY fight song.

So for the woman scared to death on a hospital bed because her child was born different, because everyone was so concerned because she didn't know what that would mean for the life of her baby and for every mother like her who shares those fears.

Baby, it will be okay.

See you after graduation!
