Carpe diem Carpe Noctem
There is no time like the present, and there will be no day as fitting as today for you to reach out and touch your dreams. Carpe diem, carpe noctem, seize every second of your life and make yourself aware that the life you have is wholly yours. It’s your responsibility, it’s your burden, but it’s also your gift. No one has procrastinated more than me, I’m sure. I am guilty of putting off all the pleasures of life for ‘when I feel better’ or ‘when life is in order’. As a person who has suffered from clinical depression for the vast majority of my life I am just now realizing that I will never feel better and my life will never make sense. That sounds pessimistic, but it’s not. Life is what it is and I can spend my time lamenting its woes and all that could have been had neurotransmitters been more plentiful, or I can live it. Recently I’ve just gotten tired, physically I feel older, and mentally I am fatigued. I called it my mid-twenties crisis but really it’s more of a revelation, what I have been feeling is not a crisis of purpose but the birth of my own purpose, not what society wants, not what J. Crew tells me to want, not what my mother, brother, boyfriend, or best friend wants, but what I want. What I want is life, it’s taken form in my head and taken hold of my heart. I’m done taking what’s given to me and ready to take what I really want because I can and because there is no day like today so why let it pass me by.
