Note for a Graduate

A note added to a graduation greeting card…


I just read a story lately about graduations and the typical commencement speeches expounding the successes we’ve had, and will have, and finding it inappropriate to speak of the failures we’ve had, and will have.

Our wish for you is to challenge the norm and push the boundaries of whatever your biggest dream is without fear of failure because often times our greatest successes are born from what we’ve learned by failing.
