Carpe Diem (pronounced kar-pay-dee-ehm) is a Latin phrase which, roughly translated, means, “seize the day”. If you look the definition up, it is:
Used to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future.
I will say, there are times when we need to prayerfully contemplate on what to do, in a situation. But I shall also say, there are times when you just need to throw everything to the wind, and go for it.
I am constantly pushing myself to do things I wouldn’t want to do, or forcing my body to go farther, than what I mentally think I can do.
It seems to me, that a lot of times, we are too caught up in worrying over the future, and what might happen. I think, more often than not, we just need to trust God with the futuristic happenings and live life as we were made to – with lots of joy and new experiences.
So. I am sorry that this post is so short, but I would rather make this short and sweet, and you get something out of this, than it be long and drawn-out, with my rambling over the same thing, over and over again.
That being said, Carpe Diem! Let’s live life to the fullest, rejoicing in the days we have on this earth and thanking God for what we have. The less we worry, the more we will trust in God and His amazing plan.
