CARPE DIEM [2]

“Every person dies, but not every person lives.”

Michael Michalko

CARPE DIEM is Latin for “seize the day.”
As a greeting in ancient Rome, it reminded Romans to “seize each day” and live each moment joyously and alive.

 

Listed below are some materials about attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to help you “seize the day.”
