Please define what is "carpe diem" in your mind.

Your criticism of my definition or anyone's will be appreciated.

The format is:

Q: Please define "carpe diem."
A: The behavior of chasing shining bubbles regardless the world is full of troubles.


(The above definition is mind)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Merriam Webster:

Q: Please define "carpe diem."
A: The enjoyment of the pleasures of the moment without concern for the future

@oristarA,
"Carpe diem" is an often quoted epigram of the Roman Poet Horace. It's capable of many interpretations, but in the context of the poet's verse it is an expression of the importance of actively living your life in the situation you face. "Seize the Day" encourages the reader to get off his ass and live.

@georgeob1,
I agree georgebob.

I don’t agree with that Webster definition of having no concern for the future.

I never though of carpe diem and not thinking of the future, but rather realizing today is all you are guaranteed, so take advantage it, without screwing things up if you happen to live until tomorrow.

Yeah, it’s taking advantage of the leverage of today.

"Seize the day" is the universal definition or rather the standard definition for Carpe Diem. In layman's words, "living" ( not just breathing) the present moment to the fullest, be it order or chaos.

@henry37,
Or making order out of potential chaos.
