CARPE DIEM

The setting sun does not signal the end of one more day in our lives, but delivers the promise of a new day to come. A new day, another chance to leave our imprint on this world. An opportunity to etch our names in the history books, to capture a place among the legendary, almost mythical persons who defined the generations before ours.

We have 2 choices to decide from each day: we can choose to let life slip through our fingertips, never capitalizing when the moment presents itself to capture greatness; or we can rise from the shadow of mediocrtity, and seize the day and make it ours.

No way of doing it can be said to be correct, all that matters is that in the end we can hold our heads up high, proud of our accomplishments, ready for the challenges of a new day, fresh with the possibility to make a difference.

CARPE DIEM, someone once said. SEIZE THE DAY. Live life to its fullest, look back on nothing with regret. And as the sun sets on this day know that you seized it, not let it slip away.

A Friend For Life

This life ceases to amaze me. You think that you really know a person. A person that you have talked to a million times, seen an inumerable amount of times and have connected with on so many levels. You take all that, and you can almost safely assume you know what makes them tick, right? Wrong.

Its becoming clear to me that until we reach adulthood, the words we speak to each other as kids dont convey who we truely are. At the time we think they do, but they dont. Not until our personalities are mature to the point that we believe in our own way and consequence, can our words have the power to give us a platform to stand on and proclaim who we are.

It took me a while, but I think Im finally getting a good read. Through mature and deep conversation, I can see a truly magnificent person appearing out of what was a thick fog. I thought I knew you as well as anyone, but I was wrong. I was looking at you through the false pretenses of adolescence. But the more I talk to you these days, the more I come to see the light you posses within.

Your a special person to more people than you can imagine. You have the ability to draw people to yourself with the sincerest intention of good will. You have been my best friend since the day I was born, and no matter the distance or time between us, you can know that my life has been touched by the person you are. And for that i thank you. Remember one thing always:
Dont ever stop being who you are.
