Carpe Diem to me!

shutterstock_370126400I decided to start my week off early today, Monday morning, fresh start.  Do some reading. Make a list of my to-do’s and get my day going. As I read through a few daily messages, I came across this:

“All is well, and you will never get it done. Life is supposed to be fun. No one is taking score of any kind, and if you will stop taking score so much, you will feel a whole lot better — and as you feel a whole lot better, more of the things that you want right now will flow to you. 

You will never be in a place where all of the things that you are wanting will be satisfied right now, or then you could be complete — and you never can be

This incomplete place where you stand is the best place that you could be. You are right on track, right on schedule. Everything is unfolding perfectly. All is really well. Have fun. Have fun. Have fun!” 

This was an excerpt from an Abraham – Hicks presentation several years ago.  It’s part of a few daily motivational emails I receive every day.

This one got me to think and take pause and look at my life. Today more so than other days.  Mostly because today is my birthday.  57 years ago I came into this world to make my mark and start this journey of learning and discovery.  Its hard to believe that 57 years can go by so fast, in some cases, the blink of an eye.

I wish I could recapture some of my earlier years and maybe even go back and redo some moments in my life.  At times I look back at my life and wonder where would I be today had I made alternate choices?  And to some extent its fun to play with the timelines, based on how old I was.  When I was younger, I couldn’t imagine what my life would be like at this age let alone even imagine me being my age or any age years down the road. But here I am.  Living in it. And maybe wishing I’ll get more time on the back end …

I have done so much, I have seen so much, and yet if I step back high enough, I realize that I’ve barely scratched the surface of living a complete and fulfilling life.  I have so much more I want to do, see and be.

My mother has this interesting saying, “Si sa dove si nasce, ma non si sa dove si muore”  Translation: We know where we’re born but don’t know where we’ll die.  And it’s true.  I think as humans we want some guarantee or some amount of predictability so as we get older we know that everything will be ok down the road.  Life can be scary at times. So many unknown factors. So many things are not in our control.

I am blessed.  Even in my darkest moments there has always been Divine guidance.  God, my Guardian Angels, my Guides … all of them have always made sure that I make it through to the next day. And when my lows have been really low, my highs have been spectacular.  In fact the lows I may hit today where the highs of years ago.  Life keeps getting better and better.  The blessings and miracles continue showing up.

So today while these words from Abraham’s discourse make me take pause and reflect, I am also going to take time away to enjoy my family and my life … and have fun.  I may not be able to get everything done today or in this life, but it is fun thinking I can.  I have a purpose, I have my goals and more importantly, I have my family that loves me and that keeps me going.

The blessings and the miracles will never stop flowing into my life.  I believe that with all my heart.  So seize this day, make the most of it no matter what you/I decide to do.  We are surrounded by love in this material, physical world and in the spiritual plane.

Carpe Diem.
