Keep in mind that success didn't come easy. She worked as a nightclub pianist, sold mattresses and waited tables in the years between graduation and publication.
She opened by telling graduates
" Chances are really, really good that you are going to be alright."
She went on to say
" Everyones identity is about to change in a major way and yes it's traumatic to graduate which is why no one remembers their graduation speaker.
Her advice ( my scribbled notes may not be a perfect translation )
Be open to your friends.
Stay close to those who make you laugh.
Consider people who make you uncomfortable, they will teach you important things.
How you live your life matters.
The best part of what waits for you is
" When we understand we are not the most important person in the world we become larger not smaller. "
