Carpe Diem-Seize the Day

  • http://www.trishaproud.com

    Today will be your yesterday tomorrow… 
    Many of us will have heard of the expression “tomorrow never comes” and that is because today literally does become your yesterday when tomorrow eventually arrives.

    There are other ‘time’ related expressions whose message is telling us not to waste our lives.  Not to “put off until tomorrow, what we can to today”; or to “carpe diem which is Latin and translates into ………..

    Now tomorrow yesterday

    “Seize the day
    Below are ten reasons why you should start to “seize the day”……. today!

    1) No time machine…
    Seize the day to be realistic, because no matter how much you fantasise no time machine in the world will take you back to yesterday.

    2) Beware the treadmill…
    Seize the day to avoid the ‘treadmill’, because yes we know that at work or in some relationships life can seem like a ‘treadmill’; however boring this may be it is always wise to remember that all the effort in the world will not take you off that treadmill yesterday.

    3) The clock is ticking…
    Seize the day in order to use your time wisely, because the clock is always ticking; as the saying goes….”time waits for no man”……

    4) Do it now…
    Seize the day because no matter how hard you wish – there is no clock in the world will bring you back in time to make that phone call, send that email, buy those flowers, or have that meeting or conversation you should have follow through yesterday.

    Time to talk

    5) Talk today…
    Seize the day to talk to the people that you know you need to talk to; yes email and text are great tools but so is the human voice!

    6) Address the issues…
    Seize the day because all too often when concerns, issues and problems move to yesterday they become more difficult to address and the moment is lost.

    7) No reverse technology…
    Seize the day to use technology and communication paths, because although it will undoubtedly be invented soon, currently there is no computer or a post office in the world that will send your e-mail, letter or post-card to that important person yesterday.

    8) Today’s thoughts – tomorrow’s memories…
    Seize the day to enjoy the moment, because it is important to fully feel what we are experiencing today, because today’s thoughts become memories when they travel back to yesterday.

    9) To learn something new…
    Seize the day because there is so much to learn in life….about life, about yourself and about others.

    10) Inevitability…
    Seize the day because today will only come once and because today will be a yesterday tomorrow. This is inevitable.
