FORSAN et HÆC OLIM MEMINISSE IUVABIT
As you grow older you start to look back at all the memories.
The nights that turned into mornings watching the sun come up
The mornings that you were up before the sun.
The laughs, the tears, the struggles, the pain, the joy,
and precious moments that you’ll never get back.
Cherish every moment,
because somehow it made you
who you are today.
If I’ve learned anything
it’s that holding onto anger will just make you
angrier and angrier within time
People will hurt you, some accidentally some intentionally.
But in the end, it’s all up to you how you respond.
Some will be strangers that hurt you
Some will be the closest person to you
Don’t hold grudges, it’s easier to simply let go.
Someone hurt you? It will be hard but let it go.
Smile when you see then.
Nothing bothers someone more than seeing someone truly happy.
Life is too short to worry about the past and what happened..
Or what’s going on in others lives.
Because regardless time will fly by.
So in the end, it’s better to spend it wisely then look back
and wonder where did the time go regretting it.
In the end, you’d rather look back and be able to smile.

:::Virgil (Publius Vergilius Maro), was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the epic Æneid.
