This hit me profoundly this afternoon. I feel millennial understand this phrase, ‘ Nothing Lasts Forever.’ Nothing does, though I often live like I will have eternal options. The people I love will always be around. I can always pursue my goals one day in the distant future. The movie Dead Poets Society’s phrase ‘Carpe Diem,’ Seize the Day should be embraced more often than it has been.
I do not mean, don’t plan for things. You should plan and plan to be living well in to your 90s. What I mean to say is also plan for little things and other big things like kids. Have multiple plans, prioritize them and keep focused on those goals. Remind yourself and talk with your partner if you have one regularly about where you want to go and what you want to do in life.
