“carpe diem quan menium cradula postero” meaning “seize the day”, trust as little possible in future.
Those are nice words when to be told, to be lectured or to be captioned in good photos, but do they have rational value? How can one not plan for future, when they are born in the world or more appropriate I can say, in a race where every other person is attaining something and to be frank you’re considered nothing but a feckless being whose is not standing anywhere if you deny to be the part of the race.
However, being a second-year high school student the only thing which remains in the back of my mind is what am I suppose to do after this; what measures will or should I choose? am I competent enough to face this world afterward? that doesn’t make me an anti-carpe diem person.
Because according to my frame of reference carpe diem doesn’t have to always look like all singing and all dancing, making to the fullest never define the ability to have fun, maybe it is the ability to challenge yourself, your competency, what you can do more to seize the present?
However That’s understandable that every now and then you have to lower your boundaries fence the things in to get a bigger picture, to get good exposure so that you can achieve the unachievable, to experience the inexperienced, yet there is no detriment in building those walls again and again; when you don’t feel like opening up to people or coming out of bed or want to choose a good book over a hangout, you’re free to go back in your comfort zone whenever needed and this doesn’t make you lackadaisical. That is just a balance
Trust me acquiring a balance is the best thing you can do to yourself, the balance between making to fullest and planning for what lies ahead, between your low-key and enthusiastic self, surely do focus on the bright side of your little world also never frighten dark coming your way ; remember your little world is always in motion and possess the ability to change your view by turning upside down.
Besides this, never ever underestimate your ability to stand alone, to work and get it going alone, plus you don’t need a bunch of people to make it to the fullest to live for today, tomorrow or whatever,(if you have sincere people around you that’s just a way of fate being nice to you), rely on your own, cause none other than that will save you in the end.
