Exam Mass Communion Reflection

Exam Mass Communion Reflection
Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each one of us is special
Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.
Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.
Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don’t dismiss your dreams.
To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Don’t run through life so fast that you forget not only where you’ve been but also where you’re going. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savoured,
each step of the way.
