Hannah, where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday that you were that beautiful, strong, little girl sitting in my classroom eager to learn. I learned so much from you that year, but the thing I learned most is that one gorgeous girl could change who I am. One of my favorite songs is from the Broadway musical Wicked. In the song it says, “Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” I would echo those words from that amazing song, because I knew YOU, I was changed for good! Thank you for being the “good” that this world is desperately in need of! I admire everything about you! As you graduate and get ready to enter adulthood, I’d like to give you a few words of advice that I have found useful in my life. Live your life with some regret. Mistakes and the learning they provide you, make you who you are, but don’t be so selfish that you plow through life without realizing you’re capable of more than you can possibly know. Be humble. You should always be proud of what you accomplish, but realize that there will always be someone better, faster, prettier, stronger, or smarter than you. Be happy and proud of what you accomplish. Don’t compare yourself to others. Be the best at what and who you are. Life is not about being better than someone else, it’s about being the best YOU can be. Take risks. Not the kinds of risks that diminish your spirit, your sense of self or physically hurt you or others, but risks that help you grow. Understand your friends today don’t have to last you a lifetime. We all change and everyone has a different path we have to follow. Follow yours. Value and appreciate your time that you have together, but when you have reached the natural end of the friendship. Move along with grace. Figure out who you are before you attach your identity to someone else. Choose your words carefully. Be kind, not mean. The people you’re mad at won’t even remember your name in three years. They will however, remember the mean things that come from you if you choose to say them. Erase Meanness and replace it with kindness. Our world needs more kindness! Find your genius. Try to figure out what gets you excited and go after it with all that you have! There is tremendous pain in the world, but also tremendous good. It is easy to see the pain in the world and think that we cannot attain more, but we are all capable of great compassion and love. There are plenty of examples of hope and kindness, you just might have to look harder and remember longer. If you figure out a way to remember the compliments more than criticism, your life will be happier. Hannah, as I watched you in 6th grade, I could see your potential and how amazing you were! Keep smiling, inspiring, and being the best YOU that you can be. Continue to make people feel that they were changed for good just because they met you! I hope you have the best day ever today! I adore you and miss you like crazy! I love you!
