In the new and upcoming year, I want to focus on everything that makes me happy inside. New adventures, new people, new passions. I’m ready and embracing change because that’s the only way you can gain peace and move forward. 2016 wasn’t the best, but it also wasn’t the worst for me. In 2017 I want to feel the feeling of adrenaline coursing through my veins… what it means to be a risk taker. I want to look back on experiences to come saying to myself I can’t believe I did that! I don’t want to have any regrets in life. I want to live for now in the present and try to push myself to new heights. That’s when beautiful things begin.

I’m no longer going to look at days as a matter of hours but as moments of endless opportunity. Anything can happen in one day. We are brought into this universe in one day, and we leave in one day. I want to make the most of my time here. Something you would never had dreamed of could suddenly come true in a matter of seconds. You just have to take the chance. Whether or not it turns out perfectly at least you tried. Taking chances is all about experiencing new things. That is truly what life is about.

I promised myself at the start of Junior year that I was going to try to adventure into the fear of the unknown. I have never really put myself out there in that way, so I thought I might as well give it a try. I wouldn’t have anything to lose. Funny enough when I was sitting in a cafe the other night I saw a sign that said “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift that’s why it’s called the present”. – Unknown Here’s to new beginnings.
