On January 1, Jessica took to Instagram and shared five photos and a short clip of their life in 2020. She captioned it with, “I don’t want to talk about how weird last year was because we all know.” Nevertheless, she “[enjoyed] the ride.” Talking about living in the present, she added, ” I learned that life is more fun when I am present and not wishing for the next thing.” Of course, she also looks forward to a better 2021, including marrying Ben.

Well, living in the present might seem obvious. But, few people actually manage it. True fact: people spend their workday waiting for the lunch break. Or knockoff time. Or, they might enjoy their weekend, but Sundays feel terrible as they anticipate Monday before it happens. Extrapolate that out, and many people spend their lives wishing away the present. Perhaps because of her Christian faith, Jessica Clarke finds a way to rather focus on the present.
