A happy day to you all. Today my focus is all about seizing the day, which is the translation of the Latin phrase; Carpe Diem. So, I am going to share how embracing the present moment will impact your life in the best way possible.
“Strive for the best, always.”
Why Carpe Diem?
In my primary school in Spain, where I grew up, our school song was called Carpe Diem. At the beginning of each prize day, the pupils all sang together, and certain lyrics from it have stuck with me ever since. Everyday we wake up with a chance to make the most of what life has to offer. You have certain choices. Either, worry or fret about what the future has to offer or rethink past events over and over. Or, simply embrace and accept the present moment right now and make the most of what you have.
“I will remember Carpe Diem and I will seize the day.”
If you assess your current situation, not judge, just watch – you will realise that your life is beautiful. Yes, some things may be happening which can bring added tension,but underneath all of this, you truly are blessed. Be grateful for every day, every minute and every second.
How Can I Seize My Day?
Start from within. Allow your mind to fill with gratitude and learn to love. This will have a huge impact on your view of the world around you. See the beauty in things. Don’t judge. Let it be.
Make the most of every moment you have. We never know when we are going to leave this earth, so really live for today, live for now.
Read. Educate yourself in as many areas of your life as possible. Most of all, learn more about things you are interested in.
Listen to others. Let people tell their stories. Offer advice when you feel it is needed. Because you will feel great about yourself if you have been able to help someone else.
Love who you are. You are one. Therefore, accept all that is and make change where you think you can improve.
Work hard and never give up.
