Seizing the day or Sleeping all day?

Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Yes, the concept sounds amazing. Wake up energized, go for a run, read a book, meditate, drink 1L of water, recite the periodic table and eat a nutritious and delicious breakfast. Easy, right?

While I am a massive fan of the ‘Seize the day’ mentality, I also am also a massive fan of the pyjamas all day and sliding around the house in two different kinds of socks mentality.

In our fast-paced world, where things are constantly changing, new ideas are being discussed and the pressure to be better than we were yesterday is ever looming, when do we take a breath? Especially in the real estate industry, work is nonstop, gone are the days of Dolly Parton singing 9-5. This is a 24 hours a day society we are living in. We are moving one hundred miles an hour and if we aren’t then most of us feel unaccomplished. Which in the grand scheme of things makes no sense? Are we working for life or is life working for us? I know it sounds very midlife crisis, but our want to survive or thrive are two completely different walks of life.

We have responsibilities, dreams, and it would be naïve of us to think that there isn’t a little bit of struggle associated in working towards those things, but where is the line? What do we deem as enough? What do we accept as enough?

At the end of the day, there are a lot of things in the world and in our lives that we don’t particularly want to do, and some of those things gives us strength in completion. But there needs to be a balance, otherwise the dreams and goals and wants for your life become second to the struggle. These things should not be second, our struggles should support our wanted path in life.

I’m a big advocate for working towards the life you want, the people you want and the places you want to get to, and in working does come struggle. However, just a little bit of support for all of you out there, where todays struggle is slighter stronger than yesterdays; I hope you find the balance between what is worth your pain and what is not. It is a beautiful world and I hope that you have at least a moment of release to feel the importance of tomorrow.
