Carpe Diem


Seize the day, people! Seize. The. Day.

The dictionary defines carpe diem as: the enjoyment of the pleasures of the moment without concern for the future.

I wear a silver ring on my left hand that says Carpe Diem, and this lovely TumbleRoot necklace too.

Two constant little reminders to go out there and…

Well, that’s debatable. What does ‘seizing the day’ even mean?

Seizing the day could mean simply trying something new, or finally taking care of something you’ve been meaning to do.

It could mean blasting your favorite song on the drive to work. Or maybe it means playing hookey for the day. Does sleeping in and eating breakfast after noon still count as seizing the day? I mean, probably…

John Wayne once said…
