Transformative Thursdays: Carpe Diem


“Carpe diem” means “seize the day” in Latin! This thought is foremost in my mind as we’re nearing the end of the first quarter of 2020.  Many of my friends are taking leaps of faith following the dreams in their hearts.  Today is your day! Tomorrow is not promised and we will give an account for the lives we have lived.

Is there more you are capable of? Is there a burning desire in your heart that won’t go away? Is there a relationship you need to mend? Is there a job you need to leave or a business you need to start? Is there a health decision you need to make?

What’s holding you back from seizing your day? The first step is often the most difficult. But once you take the first step in faith, the rest seems to fall in place. What is your first step?
