“Carpe Diem” – Seize the Day

Some of us may think we have all the time in the world. On that note, we end up wasting our time. Situations where we could have flourished have gone to waste. Opportunities are disregarded because of the idea that there is always a ‘tomorrow.’ As they always say, “There is always a next time.”

The question now is, what if there is no tomorrow?

Thinking about what happens next is challenging because it’s unknown. Predicting the future is not a walk in the park. It is probably impossible.

Because of this concept some people have held on that there is always time, we fail to make the most of it. We ignore the feeling of being in the present, cherishing the limited time we have. Yes, time is limited, so we have to use it wisely. Valuing time does not only imply ‘our’ time but as well as the time of others. It is valuing time itself.

The passing of time implies that our time is never guaranteed. What if we were too late and we made a mistake because of a reckless decision that happened that time? Lastly, what if there is no time left? Taking time for granted leads to regret in the end, and sometimes, we realize this when there’s no more time left. There’s no going back now.

The Goal is to Be Happy

Attaining wisdom and fulfillment in life also interlaces with embracing a happier life.

As we grow up, we continue to set goals every step of the way. However, there are multiple times we need to figure out which direction to go. Sometimes, we end up lost along the way. It’s best to recognize that choosing the direction to be happy in the present is the way to go. 

What happens today should be cherished and made the most of. We shouldn’t waste time and start doing what we’ve all wanted to do now—in the present. Because what matters now is what happens today. We live in the present, so why think of the tomorrow when it hasn’t even happened yet?

Do what makes you happy: Get that job, start that painting, go to the cafe with your loved one, watch that movie you’ve always wanted to watch, practice that song on the guitar, order that bag, dye your hair crazy colors, get that tattoo and piercing you planned, start valuing time now before it’s too late.

Here are some ways to value time:

  1. Plan ahead and manage your time
  2. Focus on your project 
  3. Work smart and not hard
  4. Spend time with loved one
  5. Understand failure is a learning lesson
  6. Choose happiness
  7. Learn a skill or start a hobby
  8. Be kind and do good 
  9. Appreciate what you currently have
  10. Make better choices now

Quality of Life is Quality of Time

Indeed, time is fleeting, and life is short. 

To fully fathom and understand this concept guides us to wisdom and fulfillment in life. Considering that we have engraved this in our minds, we can now start valuing time while we still have time. Every second, minute, or hour we have is precious and should be treasured like gold.

As we continue on with life, we must remember to live fully, love deeply, and learn ceaselessly.
