I was having a mooch on Pinterest the other evening and came across this quote. I really liked the message behind it and thought I would share it with you.
This post wasn't intended for today, but I think its quite well timed as AS and A Level results came out today. I hope you got what you all wanted, however if you didn't I can assure you it's not the end of the world! You wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the journey you have taken.
I received my A Level results 3 years ago and still remember it clearly! I had applied to do Geography at University and on results day did not get my first choice uni, missing out by 1 grade, which was only a couple of marks away from the grade I needed. I was upset but also very grateful for getting my second choice university. And now I have finished university and graduated, this quote means so much. I graduated with a good grade, but for me its the experience I had and the journey through university. Who knows what my university experience would have been like if I had gone to my first choice university!
Whether you want to go to university or not, or have been through university or not, I think everyone can relate to this quote in some way. Just remember, if the outcome was not as you expected whether for better or worse, you've still had the experience and that journey will shape your life in one way or another!
