A Quote I Try and Live By…

“There is no future, there is no past. I live this moment as my last. There’s only us. There’s only this. 

Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road. No other way. No day but today. 

I can’t control my destiny. I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be. 

There’s only now, there’s only here. Give into love, or live in fear. No other course, no other way.


I think this quote encapsulates how I try and live my life. Now with that being said I have often felt complacent and stuck in a rut. I was perfectly content to let the world pass me by. But as I grow older, and have had more life experiences, I’ve come to realize how short life can be. Carpe diem! Seize the day! I don’t ever want to wonder, “what if” or have any regrets. 

As with anything though abiding by and following the quote’s message can be difficult, and I am only human. There are times when being shy and having social anxiety have prevented me from participating in activities and/or meeting people. Even to this day walking into a room filled with people I don’t know scares the crap out of me. 

So does seizing the day mean I go and take ridiculous risks? No, hardly. I am still careful and cautious. I am still hesitant and shy.  I just remind myself… there’s no day but today and in doing so it makes me go want to go and try new things, meet more people, and make more memories…
