Ferris Bueller had it right...

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once in a while you could miss it." ~From the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Looking a little deeper at this movie, that is exactly the point. Instead of sitting in school all day like every day before, Ferris and two of his friends skip classes. They 'borrow' Cameron's dad's sports car, finagle their way into a fancy downtown Chicago restaurant, catch a foul ball at the Cubs' game, and Ferris even makes it onto a parade float. At the end of the day, Cameron admitts it was the best day of his life. I am certainly not condoning auto theft nor truancy, but Ferris took the initiative to really enjoy a day to its fullest.
