A Second Graduation … (to be held in late Sept 2014)
What an eventful day. I feel so very blessed.
Today, out of the blue, I received an invitation to attend a second, special graduation ceremony hosted by the British Council and British High Commission in Malaysia – to be held in Kuala Lumpur. They extended the invitation to all Malaysians who graduated in the UK in the past 15 years. The second graduation will be in late September.
Co-incidentally, I graduated on the 18th of July 2013 – tomorrow would be an exact year since that event – this year’s graduation ceremonies are taking place at my University as I write this! Talk about Divine Timing 🙂
My parents were not able to attend my official graduation ceremony in the UK [shown] and there was a sense of deep hurt and longing – coincidentally this was also the time of the Grand Sextile (July 2013) and other wild energies. My friends and others close to me were there in attendance and everyone brought so much love to that day – it was not one without challenge. But through it all, I had this deep regret that my dad (in particular, as my mum had seen me during my undergrad ceremony) could not be there to see it.
Fingers crossed, all goes well and my parents will actually be able to see me ‘become a doctor’ for the second time 😀 Same degree though (PhD in Politics).
I feel as though this prayer I was holding so close to my chest, my gut, my inner child was truly and blissfully answered.
So Thank You Universe.
