Just One More Day To Live - What Would You Do?

What If You Just Had One More Day? What Would You Do?

Sometimes a video comes along that is so poignant, so powerful, and so utterly beautiful in its simplicity that we can’t help but take notice.
There are a never ending stream of articles, blogs, and videos out there, all clamoring for our attention and all trying to relay the same message of self-improvement. We all know the phrase, “Carpe Diem,” but rarely do we stop to actually consider what it means. We can hear a message told a thousand different ways without ever truly listening to it, but all it takes is one time, one perfectly articulated thought, for us to actually internalize the idea.

I hope watching this video will mark that time for you. 
When you consider how much of your life is spent at work, it’s pretty horrifying to think that most people spend that time doing something they hate. They’re working for their paycheque and they’re working for the weekend, and they think that’s completely normal. I met so many people over the last several months who seemed so resigned to their fate, as though being unhappy at work was simply the reality of being an adult and living in the “real world.” But I promise you, that is simply not the case. That is a fiction we have been told all of our lives, and it is preventing us from taking risks and striving for our dreams.
I know for a fact that when you actually care about something, you put more effort into it. And, more importantly, when you are engaged in what you are doing, it doesn’t feel like work.
The video below explains how much time you spend doing things like working, cooking, and cleaning. And it shows you how much time you have left for the things you enjoy. Check it out, and be prepared to be moved! I hope this inspires you as much as it did me.

So 'Seize the Day' (Carpe Diem) and live, even if it's for just one day.
