Words To Live By

23 Nov


well said.

seize the day

5 Nov

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.


Words to Live By: Marilyn Monroe

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.
