I had the most amazing day yesterday at my graduation from Kings.
Back in the Autumn I had pretty much decided that it was a pointless and showy-off sort of a thing and I wouldn’t be going. However I asked the question on Facebook about whether graduations were worth going to, and if people ever regretted not going. There were such a lot of great stories, and so many prompts that I really should … that I booked in (helped too by the fact that my Sister wanted to come, as well as my lovely wife, Jo).
Anyway, so glad I did go. (That’s me graduating in the Picture above!). I found the day hugely emotional and I think finally realized the journey and challenge it had been. My mind and my feelings were all over the place; musing about my Dad who had left school at 14, about the negative comments of my school teachers back in the day, about my children. There were tears in my eyes as I was waiting for my name to be called, then as I walked onto the stage. the most amazing thrill that I had ACTUALLY achieved an M.A from Kings College.
So glad I went.
A humbling and uplifting day.
