“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Peter F. Drucker
This week, it’s all about the future , where Jen asks us to share an image that represents the potential of things to come.
My daughter just happened to graduate with her Masters of Politics and Public Policy this week so I am happy to say that I am a very proud mother of a very clever daughter. I know lots of people are graduating at this time of year but I happen to think that she is a very determined young woman, full of potential and she represents the future beautifully!
This photo shows her happy with herself and doing her best to look like she just graduated from Hogwarts!
She started her Masters while working full time and completed it mainly by external study. In the final year of her studies she was also planning her wedding, which was set just days before her final dissertation was due. In true Sarah style she didn’t let these minor issues get in her way, she just kept working hard. Things got a bit stressful there for a while but she achieved her goal with a fantastic wedding and she graduated with her Masters! She’s doing her best to create her own future.
I believe that education is vital for our future and I think that Sarah encapsulates the future in many ways. Congratulations to everyone who undertakes study, supports those participating in any sort of study and those who value the gaining of knowledge. I maybe should point out that I work in Education, as does my husband, so maybe I’m a little biased!
PS. I am very proud of each of my three daughters and they are all very clever girls. I have written a post about each of my daughters and even my mother, where I compared their lives at my age – you can find them here on My favourites page. I compared my life with Sarah’s at age 28 in this post a few years ago. It was an honour to chronicle their lives and their dreams for the future.
