Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, means literally “Pluck the day”, though it’s usually translated as “Seize the day”, taken from book 1 of the Roman poet Horace’s work Odes.
The main reason as to why I want to live by this phrase this year is that I have done nothing with my life. I am a typical nobody. I only exist to my family, a few colleagues I have acquainted with and my teachers. And just to be clear it is not acknowledgement or recognition that I seek, but it is instead the satisfaction of doing something with my life that I yearn for.
So this year is going to be different. And it’s not the usual drama that people put out there every new year. No. I’m not that person. If I say I am going to do something, I make sure I do it. Or, I don’t say it at all. This is why you’ll also know me as the girl who kept her word.
This year I want to carpe diem. I want pluck the soul of the day. The motivation that I lacked last year is here. It’s been 15 days since the new year and I do see a few transitions here and there, but I am not perfectly happy with them. I want to be more aggressive at seizing the day, and I am going to make sure I don’t waste any second on unnecessary and insubstantial things from this second forth.
And lastly, hope you have had the best 15 days. If not, it’s okay. You can start now. What are you focusing on this year? What do you think about my new post in this new year? Happy 2017. Work hard until your dreams turn into reality. You just got another shot at it. Carpe diem, my friend.
Happy Sunday .x
