31. Carpe Diem

“Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero.” – Horace

“Seize the day, putting as little trust as possible in the future.”

“Carpe diem.  Seize the day, boys.  Make your lives extraordinary.”  – John Keating, Dead Poets Society

The single biggest change in my life did not take decades of planning, years of speculating, and months of work.  It truly took a single moment. I made a decision to not live the life I had been living.  In that single moment, my life changed drastically forever in a very positive direction.  This leads me to believe, that same shift in perspective and circumstance is available to everyone.  I believe in the presence of miracles and their ability to change the world around us, or at least, how we see it in a true instant.

The biggest block for most of us between our current circumstances and the miracles that we so desperately want, are a collection of negative thoughts and beliefs that tell us the lies we have allowed ourselves to believe.  Those tapes that say we are not good enough, or we are not worthy, the ones that we allow to tell us that our dreams are unreachable.  Maybe today is the day that we replace those tapes that do not serve us in any way with some affirmative ones that remind us how special and important we really are in the world. 

Last I checked, in the whole entire universe for all of history and time, there is only ONE of you.  One, for ever and always, the chances of you even being able to live and breath are so slim. Frankly, it is a miracle that any of us are here at all.  SO I say, since we were given this chance to be right here right now, let us seize the day and express the miracles of life that we are. We will express this miracle in such a way that everyone around us and everyone that we come in contact with, are reminded that they too are miracles.  This life is amazing and beautiful, wonderful and awe-inspiring if we allow it to be. Today, I allow it to be, boy o boy, do I ever love Fridays!!!!

Affirmation:  “Today I will make my life extraordinary!”

Call to Action: Take the time today starting right NOW to make the choice to live this day differently.  I know for myself when I read something like this my subconscious places a situation for me in my head that I need to address, that is probably the right place to start.  Remember, miracles happen in instants and they are abundant and available, I hope your miracle comes today.  Please share your experiences with our CYLFriday community below.

  1. Thanks CYLF crew for another great post which reminds me as I head into this weekend that it really is best to keep it all simple by being consciously grateful for circumstances and conditions exactly as they are, especially the life I have been given, since all the rest are taken.
