Carpe Diem

Seize the day

Sometimes it is so hard to focus on the present and to not worry about the future or dwell in the past. But today I have been reminded to really live in the present, and appreciate all the opportunities that are right there in front of you.

“Carpe diem” is one of my favorite quotes; it reminds me that today is the day to make something happen. Whether you take on a new hobby, apply for a job, tackle a new years resolution, or do something as simple as tell someone that you care. I of all people, always worry about what is to come, or what goals I should have achieved by the end of the week.

But what I’ve realized, is how important it is to relish in the present moment and be happy for everything that you do have. Maybe the path you take isn’t straight, and maybe you don’t end up where you thought you’d be — but the beauty of life is about living in the precious present, and seizing the day.
