The old Roman proverb “carpe diem”, translated “seize the day”, means when a promising opportunity or idea presents itself to us we should act on it. Hesitation or procrastination can close the door on things that could make our life better or more interesting or more fulfilling. Live your life.
More often than not, we fail to act due to lack of confidence or courage. This hesitation keeps us from moving forward and can leave us wondering what might have been. Whenever you feel it’s time to act, or wouldn’t it be cool if I could just do this or be like that, take action. No matter the outcome, you will end up with a new life experience. Whenever I wonder if I should ‘seize the day’, I remind myself of a piece of advice I heard many years ago. ‘Don’t be one of those who tip toes through life hoping you make it safely to death’.
Don’t worry if something doesn’t turn out exactly as you want or hope. It is far better to try and fail at something than to never even try.
