Carpe Diem. - Seize the day!
Stop for a second.
Do you realize where you are, what you have?
You have some sort of technological device in front of you, and you have the ability to read whats in front of you.
Do you realize how lucky you are?
We often turn a blind eye to what we receive everyday, not realising its importance or worth till it's gone.
January is reaching an end and the first month of 2018 has disappeared. Time flies!
Every day of the year is special. To put things in perspective there are 12 months , 52 weeks, 8765 hours and 525948 minutes in a year. Every second, whether a second from your birthday, or a second from failing a test, or a second away from a 80% , it all plays an important role in making you the person you are today.
It is those goals we failed to reach, that gives us the strength to achieve it the next time round.
Like they say, a glow stick has to break before it shines. In the same manner our downfall is the rise to our strength.
Never regret a day in your life, the good days give you happiness,the bad days give you experience,the worst days give you lessons, and the best days give you memories to cherish forever!
Use those memories and skills you have earned to build you a better future. Thrive on happiness and give happiness so that happiness remains with you in the service of others.
So reconsider your possible new year's resolution that could've gone along the following lines : “forgive and forget”
Be grateful of your past and all that is has molded you into, “forgive and learn” so that you can paint a better tomorrow than today.
Life is a series of thousands of tiny miracles. Notice them.
