Live in the moment

Don't dwell on the past or worry about the future, be present

Throughout our time in high school we are constantly fed this idea that these years will fly by us and that it is important to cherish each moment we have. However, this advice has become a cliche and is increasingly becoming overlooked and undervalued. As my four years at Mill Valley come to a closing, I find myself wishing that I had understood the truth that this cliche held.

From freshman to junior year I definitely took my time for granted. I spent my time anywhere but the present and instead dwelled on the past or yearned for the future. As the end approaches, I’ve been able to sit back and realize that from the first day I walked in those doors four years ago to right now, I have met the people and lived through the experiences that have allowed me to grow into the person I am today and will affect me for the rest of my life.

You only get to experience high school once so you might as well make the most of it. Spend time finding the people and things that make you happy and make sure to embrace every moment, expected and unexpected, because you’ll never get to experience it again.
