Carpe diem. Seize the day. Make the most of today. Everyday. Of life.
I keep thinking about how important it is to be true to yourself and to satisfy yourself- your spirit, your soul, your aspirations and goals- on a broader scale rather than on day to day, quotidian terms. I don’t want to take for granted my time here… I want to take advantage of it. I want to go out and explore. Take pictures. Feel free. Connect. Be happy.
The song “I Wish I Could Go Back to College” from the musical Avenue Q keeps coming back to me… it goes “I wish I could go back to college/ …I wish I had taken more pictures”. I know my time here, both in France and in college, is short. The song kind of reminds me of that and how I don’t want to look back with regrets.
I already posted a “Words to Live By” quote by Mark Twain here, but I think it captures this feeling perfectly, so I’ll share it again. It goes:
In 20 years, you will be more disappointed by what you didn’t do than by what you did.
I think it’s something we all need to be reminded of once in awhile :)
Make the most of your day life.
I am invariably late for appointments – sometimes as much as two hours. I’ve tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.
