Carpe Diem (KAR-pay and DEE-em)
a familiar Latin phrase meaning to Seize the Day
We each have the same amount of time every day to live for better or for worse.
We’re here to share with you some inspiration, ideas, encouragement and information to do just that – to Carpe Diem – Seize the Day (and the moments therein)!
This is not a “how-to” site, though. You know that words are powerful. So, here you’ll find words that are powerful and/or designed to prompt you to consider how you live for better or for worse.
We have no do-overs of the moments of our lives. Once they’re gone, they are gone. We’re here to encourage us all to strive to live with no regrets. . .with intention to live fully now. Carpe Diem – Seize the Day!

Body Mind Spirit and Soul
Each of us is a combination of body, mind, soul and spirit; all of these aspects are to be considered every day. Too much emphasis on just one or two of our components for too long will inevitably lead to imbalance. But you know that, right!?!?
