Carpe Diem


I just started this “Motivational Movie” campaign, I’m going to watch as many of them as possible between October 1 and December 31. Yesterday I watched “The Blind Side” and today I watched “Dead Poet Society.”

Both were great movies and both touched, moved and inspired. Dead Poets Society had the biggest impact on me. I really enjoyed watching this movie again.

My take away was this: Life is short; seize the day, everyday, live life to the fullest. Conformity destroys mans passion for life. Take the road less traveled and it will make all the difference.

Your life is your life, live it as you powerfully choose, without harming others.

I highly recommend this movie for all to see. Watch it and see where have you lost you lust for life due to the belief that you must conform to the standards of society.


One farmer says to me, “You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;” and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle. – Henry David Thoreau
