I turned 17

Recently I’ve turned 17 years old and it made me realize that I will never get a do-over on 16 so I started to think about the things I have learned from 16-year-old Mya.

  1. Growing up isn’t all that great! I made this pretty clear in my last birthday post but  I’ll say it again. ” I wish I was 7 years old all over again.
  2. Be proud of my mistakes, at least now I know how to avoid them and that alone will make life just a little easier.
  3. Appreciate what I have while I have it.  The realization of me never being 16 again just hit me like a ton of bricks and to that, I say ” Here to only being 17 once”
  4. “Friendships cause heart breaks too” – Wolfyla
  5. When you feel conflicted, fix it.
  6. Procrastination is the devil.
  7. Never assume anything, do your research.
  8. Apparently, I NEED to work out and make it a lifestyle.
  9. You don’t need to prove yourself to anybody.
  10. You can live without the people who don’t have time for you.
  11. I’m not alone.
  12. Comparisons are the worse things to do to one’s personalities.
  13. I can live without sugar and I really don’t want it.
  14. A part of me will always want to play softball.
  15. I need to travel or try something new to live.
  16. 16 doesn’t last forever.
  17. Family is everything NO matter how far away they are.
