Remember those days when you were in school and had to read Macbeth by the bard, William Shakespeare; you must be able to remember, at least in part, this famous soliloquy:


There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


If you can, then you can totally relate to what Katy Huth Jones is saying within the poetry she’s included in this book. Life is too brief to keep worrying to what has been, because there’s nothing we can do about changing what has already happened. And we can’t worry about the future either. Instead, we must look forward to each day has it comes and live it to its fullest.


It’s nice looking back to the decisions we’ve made and wonder what would have been if I had only done this instead of that, I know because I’ve done it myself; and the chances are you’ve done it as well.


Furthermore, as I’ve already mentioned; try as we might love to do, we can’t do anything about the future even it might be only an hour, or better yet, the next minute; because some crazed idiot might decide to drive by and shoot you as you walk down the road. And to go even further, you can’t tell me what you’re thinking about RIGHT NOW because that now has already passed. 


Instead you must do what the quote the author uses on the very first page of her book:


"Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero." From Horace's Odes


And seize each day, each minute and each second as they come.


For telling the truth about what we need to do to live life to its fullest, I’m happy to give Ms. Hunt and her book, 5 STARS.


I read this book via a KINDLE Unlimited download.
