I like the colors, of course. Purple is my favorite color and teal is a close second. But I especially love the inspiring message.
I will always remember Robin Williams in the 1989 film, Dead Poets Society, saying to his students, "Seize the day, boys! Make your lives extraordinary!" The film was directed by Peter Weir. Tom Schulman won an Oscar for best original screenplay. It was also nominated for Best Picture. (If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you add it to your Netflix queue.)
Too often I fritter away what precious little free time I have without actually seizing the opportunities each day presents. I get caught up in business and busy-ness. I need to remind myself to seize time to be outdoors enjoying Nature. I need to seize time that would otherwise be wasted on trivialities to rest and reflect and create. I need to allow myself to be more spontaneous. I need to give myself permission to abandon my To Do List on occasion to play with the grandkids ot spend time with family and friends.
So, carpe diem, my friends. Seize the day! Make your lives extraordinary!
