Graduation Gifts that Inspire

Graduation day is a time of hope, promise, excitement and optimism.  Your dreams seem promising.  You believe that opportunities will abound, and that the future is bright and magical. And after all the hard work you put into obtaining a degree, it should feel this way.  

When I was creating my secret message poesy lockets, I purposely created two whose hidden messages were not the traditional romantic poesy inscriptions.  I wanted these messages to be inspiring.  Something the wearer could look at when they needed a little boost of confidence, and remember that they had the strength to go it alone.    

The first inspirational secret message poesy locket contains the highly recognized Latin phrase, "carpe diem."  It means "seize the day," and I think it's a great reminder that you can begin each and every day with a fresh new outlook and make it count towards reaching whatever your goals may be.

The second inspirational message locket contains the Latin saying, "alis volat propriis" which means "she flies with her own wings."  How inspirational is that for a young woman about to enter the world on her own - or anyone on their own for that matter!  It reminds her that she is strong, independent, and can accomplish whatever she wants on her own terms.

In the lovely words of Eleanor Roosevelt, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their own dreams."  These lockets not only let you show your graduate that you believe in them and their dreams, but will remind them every day that they should continue to believe in their own dreams as well, and go after them until they reach them.
