12 Quotes on How to Enjoy Your Life – Carpe Diem

Are you enjoying your life? Do you savor each day as it comes? I think the older I get the more I treasure each day here  with my family and friends. Maybe it’s just the ‘aging’ thing, idk. But I do know that each day that I live there is something more to be grateful for. God is good, no matter what the circumstances. And He is faithful, He will see us through these troubling times, He promised.

Let us live each day as a gift, a treasure that God has provided us. Let us savor the moments we have together and not the things that come our way. And let us encourage one another and build each other up on our journey. God bless you all my friends and thanks for stopping over today!

Carpe Diem – Seize the Day

Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, usually translated “seize the day”, taken from the Roman poet Horace’s Odes (23 BC). Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō “pick or pluck” used by Ovid to mean “enjoy, seize, use, make use of”.Diem is the accusative case of the noun dies “day”. A more literal translation of “carpe diem” would thus be “pluck the day [as it is ripe]”—i.e., enjoy the moment. In western education the tag is now often rendered as “take advantage of the opportunities arising in the day.” (Source-Wikipedia)
