i, jane, am officially 17 ! 16 was definitely good to me. i accomplished lots in school, work, sports, and learned so much about myself. one of the biggest things i have been reflecting on lately is how i can live in the moment. between making big career and future decisions and taking on more responsibilities, i find myself constantly thinking about the future and what is to come and forget how important it is to live in the moment. each moment in time is unique and will never be repeated, and each moment has something to offer if you open your eyes. i want to reflect on what is happening in the “now” and learn and grow from that, instead of always thinking about “one day” or “some day.” so, here’s to 17 and finding beauty in the present moment.
