Today my wife and I pulled up behind a car with the above letters on their license plate. It took me just a few seconds to recognize it as, “Seize the Day”.
You can do your own search as far as the meaning and other information behind this phrase (most only know it from the movie, “Dead Poets Society”) but I found one source that says that a more accurate translation of “Carpe diem” would be “enjoy the day” or “pluck the day [as it is ripe]“.
Once again we are back to the FACT that TODAY is all you have. Will you “seize” it, “enjoy” it or will you actually “pluck it” because, friends, it IS “ripe”!
It is ripe with opportunity and it’s waiting for you right now. If this day is all but passed then determine to get out of bed in the morning with a renewed dedication to ACTION – to pluck the ripe opportunity that will surely surround you throughout the day.
And, as you do, be sure to…
“Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)”
