“I am trying to figure out…where to go from here.”

Postcard_10

Thirty of my former high-school students — who are now making their ways out in the world — volunteered to participate in ink + sky’s first Postcard Project. I am grateful for their honesty, their candor, and their willingness to take a risk.

By disclosing what they are trying to figure out, these young men and women are revealing a part of their inner selves. This courageous decision requires the willingness to be vulnerable, which is one of the most powerful acts that a person can demonstrate.

Your thoughtful comments are welcomed below. The author of this postcard will value your affirmations and kindness. Thank you.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! That was deep. I am sure it took a lot to share all of that, but I along with many others appreciate your confidence to share your story! And I entirely agree that more time needs to be spent in high school preparing students for life afterwards, regardless of what they choose to do. This would better assist everyone growing up and prevent them from feeling lost afterwards. But in the meantime, we must work with what we’ve got. It certainly can be a frustrating time, as I and many of our peers are asking these same questions. It’s a tough battle but not insurmountable, and I have full faith that you will emerge victorious. Your awareness and concern for the situation puts you far ahead of many, and will help fuel you in your endeavor. Take time to step back and enjoy even the little things in life, as you never know just how important and influential those moments may be. Keep your head up high, and be yourself. Things will fall into place for you, just try not to overthink things in the process. Best wishes to you!
