do you have a life motto? what is it?
My life motto can be summed up in three simple words: “Seize the moment.” I firmly believe that waiting for the perfect timing is unnecessary.

Each moment holds the potential for joy, growth, and fulfillment, regardless of external circumstances. By seizing the opportunities that come our way and making the most of them, we can create a life filled with meaningful experiences. Waiting for the “right” time often leads to missed opportunities and regrets. Therefore, I choose to embrace the present moment, taking action and pursuing my passions without delay. Life is too short to be held back by hesitation or the pursuit of perfection. So, let us seize the moment, embrace the now, and make the most of every precious second we have.
