Achievement: Graduation!

Digital layout using Kitten Scraps May Kit.  

We have such a timely theme over at Path of Positivity!  With all the graduations, weddings, fairs, new homes, etc there are so many achievements to celebrate.  We are at the mid-point with this theme and I've decided to share a more traditional achievement from our family.  

My nephew graduated as the valedictorian this spring!  Needless to say, we all thought this was quite an achievement.  His hard work from his prior 13 years of school truly paid off.  He gave a great speech sharing his thoughts on following your passions to achieve success.  

That philosophy is so true and yet so many of us fight it.  We try to be someone/something we are not and then don't understand why we cannot achieve our goals.  When we do this, we are certainly fighting a losing battle.  Even if others see us as successful, we never feel the achievement because it never feels "good enough" or "right" to us.  

His speech also made me think about all of the small achievements along the way to the final goal.  Often times, we forget to celebrate those moments since we're looking toward the end result.  Those smaller moments are so important to the final outcome which in reality is not the final outcome!  Yes, my friends, that huge achievement is just one more moment on our way to the next.

My projects are made using the This Year May Kits from Kitten Scraps.  I used the Neutral and Boy Kits.  I'm new to Digital Crafting, but I must say this is easier than you might imagine.  If you haven't tried this kind of creating, I encourage you to  give it a go!  Of course, you can also print it use it more traditionally as I did making the bag below.  My bag cut is from SVG Cuts.

Now that I've shared my story of achievement,  what's your story?    Share your thoughts with us through craft/story/art at Path of Positivity for a chance to win some great prizes!  Our sponsors this month are Robyn's FetishKitten ScrapsCreative Bug, and Decosses Dynamite Doodles.  So, pop on over to PoP and see what Design Team has to share and check out the prizes.  We can't wait to see what you create!
