"Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero." Means "Seize the day, put no trust in the morrow."~Horace
We've all heard "Seize the day," but most people don't include the rest...which might be even more important. For several reasons.
"Put no trust in the morrow." Here's the deal. Tomorrow is promised to no one! But most of the time, we proceed as if we are going to live forever and never think about it. There's another quote that says "Put off until tomorrow only what you want to leave unfinished if you die tonight." (Or something like that) We are mortal beings and we can go at any time. Kind of makes you at some things differently, doesn't it.
"Seize the day." Be present now. Be in the moment, only in this moment and your world will expand exponentially. Most of us find it difficult to be in the moment, we are either thinking about what has already happened (and we can't do anything about) or thinking about what's to come (which we can only prepare for). When you are in the moment, you are truly living.
That being said "Put no trust in the morrow." Stop putting off the important things in life and get doing them!
Know. Be Known. Make A Difference!
