In mindfulness practice, we are often asked to focus on the present moment. This present moment is all we have. We can’t look back on the past and regrets and make that our focus. We can learn from the past and make changes for our future, but what has happened, has already happened. It is important that we learn to seize the day. In this article, we share a Seize The Day Robin Williams music video. A video that takes some of the best bits of Robin Williams movies. These clips create a powerful message to hopefully inspire and motivate you to make the most of your day. We then share some of the things we can learn from the words of the music video and how to apply them to our lives.
What can we learn from seize the day Robin Williams music video?
“…the human race is filled with passion, poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for!”
The power of this video of mixed film clips of films starring the late Robin Williams is not only incredibly creative. It has other powerful messages that we should all be inspired by. Some of these points I found from this video are : –
- ‘strive to find your own voice, look at it in another way’ – this line resonates with our ability to look at situations and things in another way. So when we think something has ruined our life or is stopping us moving forward we can either agree with the statement or we can choose to try and think of the situation in another way and that it is a challenge or something that can be changed for the better no matter what the problem is.
- ‘the human race is full of passion’ – we all have passions inside of us that make us feel more alive than ever before. For me, it is art, painting and creating, nothing is so real than creating. Finding the time to follow your own passion even for no financial gain is very important to improve your sense of wellbeing.
- ‘ideas and words can change the world’ – an idea really can change the world. It is important to be careful about what you allow yourself to think. Thinking with a positive mindset and trying to improve things for other people can improve the world for them. It can also bring a sense of happiness knowing you helped another, is probably our true reason for being alive.
- ‘seize the day’ – Life is short enough already don’t short it any further. We can still seize the day by taking action today. Choosing to make the changes we need to in order to live a more fulfilling life.
Lastly, the thing we can learn the most is that Robin Williams had a hugely profound effect on us all. Why? He always held roles where he was a kind, humorous and gentle soul. Always following his heart trying to be selfless for the betterment of those around him. We should all strive to hold the characteristics of Robin William’s characters.
