Carpe diem. You only live once. Seize the Day. And so on. These are all phrases that can sound so trite.
But guess what. That moment does indeed pass.
What do you want to do about it? Watch the ship pass you by, while the bird flies away and you stay stuck in the moment?
Go catch the bird. Go fly away. Decide what you need to do going forward that can keep you energized to make the most out of life.
As Mae West stated: “you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Go see the world, before you get buried in it.
