“Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” — Dead Poets Society, 1989
What does it really mean to “seize the day”?
Well, I’m glad you asked, although it means something different for each person.
What makes you come alive?
What activities &/or hobbies bring you joy? Peace? Flow?
Rather than solely existing and “solving problems” (in reality, nature, there are no problems), what if you found something you loved?
Something that added meaning to your life.
Something that allows you to express yourself.
Something that you continuously get better at, joyedly.
Something that people love to criticize you about, as you get better at it…as they watch your dreams come true from a distance.
As you continue to ignore them because they were never there with you or for you, ever. So they don’t even exist to you.
And you just keep on living, seizing the day, every day.
