Are people asking you what are you going to do after graduation? Although none of us may openly say it, there’s no denying that this question is on every one of our minds. You did the thing. You worked hard for four years. You wrote essays, took tests, and essentially worked your butt off, but, now, well you’re done. It’s probably a surreal moment, one that you can’t completely wrap your head around, and that’s completely okay. Maybe, you're ready for the next chapter of your life, or maybe you’re still anxious about the future.

No matter where you find yourself at this juncture of your life, take a moment to remember all that you have accomplished as you read through these five tips from a fellow college graduate to answer that age-old question, what are you going to do after graduation?

1. Where You Go is Not Who You Will Be

There’s a great book on this topic by Frank Bruni that I would definitely recommend flipping through when you have a spare chance. This is a lesson I’ve had to come to terms with a month after graduation and I’m positive that you probably are wrestling right now with the uncertainty of your future, too. Even though it might seem cliche (in the least), this lesson is perhaps one of the most important ones we need to learn.

Let’s say you don’t have a job or a career lined up for you post-graduation. That’s completely okay. Or, maybe, I’m wrong. Maybe, you have the future all prepared with a nice, little red bow placed on top. Look, in the grand scheme of things, the six-figure career, or even your desire to always be doing the next, ambitious thing, well they don’t really matter. Rather, the kindness and courage you showcase in your life will long outweigh the large paycheck in your bank account. I know what you’ll say now; believe me, I’ve heard it all. Kindness does not pay the bills. Not always, but that doesn’t mean we should forget exhibiting kindness towards ourselves and others.
