Carpe Diem (Seize the Day)
by DW Green — February 3, 2021
I really like the phrase Carpe Diem. Wonder why that is? Maybe it’s the sound of the words. Maybe not. Carpe Diem is a Latin aphorism, meaning “Seize the Day.” Then there’s Veritas Nunquam Perit meaning “Truth never dies.” Or Veritas for short. “Truth.” So much for Latin!
You will only get one shot today. You have only twenty-four hours with which to take it. And then it is gone and lost forever. Will you fully inhabit all of today? Will you call out “I’ve got this,” and do your very best to be your very best?
What will you manage to make of today before it slips from your fingers and becomes the past? When someone asks you what you did yesterday, do you really want the answer to be “nothing”?
And then again, its been said, “Nothing is often a good thing to do and always a clever thing to say.”
Carpe Diem, just the same!
