Carpe Diem or Seize the day is an idea where you don’t let anything pass your grasp. Yolo or you only live once would be our generation’s version of Carpe diem. Yolo this or Yolo that, usually means just do it without considering much because you only live once. But Yodo which stands for you only die once makes you think more about your decisions. Carpe Diem can be used for giving it your best at everything which is seizing the chance.
Every day is a Carpe Diem day where I need to make carpe diem decisions. Just getting out of bed instead of sleeping in is a carpe diem decisions because I chose to spend my day in school rather than spend it in bed where I don’t learn anything.
The meaning of Carpe Diem varies from person to person. For me it means that I should live day to the fullest in a good way. But for others it could mean do all fun stuff including bad stuff because you only live once. For this year I would want to live it to the fullest by facing each problem with better attitude and not let it ruin my day.
Martin Luther King Jr. is a great example of a person who lived the Carpe Diem life. He spent most of his life fighting for the rights of his people. He seized the day and not let each day slip without trying hard to convince people that they too are people. Let us try to live a Carpe Diem Life!
