“Today is the day the comes only once in four years”, read the Facebook status updates of so many of my friends. “Do something special today.”
One attempted to run 29 kilometers, and was disappointed at having to give up after 20. Another cooked an elaborate three course lunch, which did not come out the way it was meant to.
Me? I chose to keep it as just another day, with normal pleasures. Swimming in an empty pool, making a fruit-salad with the kids, seeing how far paper planes can go.
Carpe diem. Seize the day, but do it everyday.
