carpe-ing the diem

"Carpe Diem” how annoying is “Carpe Diem”? how are you supposed to plan a life, a career, a family? if you’re always “carpe-ing the diem”.. if we all seize every moment of every day there wouldn’t be doctors, who would sit through med school? we’d all be too busy living in the now.. whatever that means.. .....I’ll admit the Romans have a point, you don’t have to live life.. and living means every morning when you wake up you have to choose.. it means seizing what life offers you at the moment and forging ahead.. no matter the weather, or closing the curtains, and shutting out the day...
