As you probably surmised, I saw Dead Poets Society tonight. I’d seen it before but never on a big screen. It was just as inspiring and endearing as the other times I’d seen it, perhaps even more this time.
That line keeps reverberating in my head– “What will your verse be? ”
So, what will your verse be? How will you contribute to this powerful play that you’re a part of? What will people remember you for after you’re gone?
Far more than an inheritance, what you can leave your loved ones is a lasting legacy. They can follow the example you set by not just making a living but making a difference as well.
I don’t know how this will play out for you, but I do know that if you want your life to matter, you have to be intentional about how you will live your days and not just eek out an existence.
It’s all about carpe diem– seizing that day.
