Some people speak of living for the moment. Having "carpe diem" as their slogan. Their decree to want to take life day by day. Hoping fate will lead the way, and things will always be okay. Taking it easy; Life is a holiday to be enjoyed and celebrated the right way.
Others say this is a hippie cliche. That living day to day isn't living, its surviving. It's not thriving, to truely live means striving. Its realizing what you want most and trying. About devising a plan to achieve all you aspire. Gain the skills and knowledge you require. To go higher, elevate and inspire, be someone others admire. Stand with the fruits of labor in your hand that you have acquired and be proud for getting that which you desire.
Two ways to look at life I guess. Value one view doesn't make the other less. Assess what's important to you; pave your own road to success. Some play the fame of life as checkers; others as chess.
Wanted to make it longer but felt it it the points I wanted to get accross
