Weekly Theme in Review: Carpe Diem

in Weekly Themes



This week we counted each new sunrise as a fleeting and precious gift. Here are some of the highlights from the past few days:

  1. Seize Your Dreams. Make it happen. Write down your deepest aspirations (professional, personal, relationships, family) and let nothing stand in the way of your efforts.
  2. Seize the Present. Carpe Diem is not about ignoring the future. It is simply about maximizing today’s opportunities.
  3. Seize the Moment. There are 1,440 minutes in each day. Make as many of them count. Carpe Diem. Go forth.

You graciously shared your “Carpe Diem” intentions with us:

To love, unconditionally, move forward with courage and open mind, communicate honestly and with kindness, to give back all that I am. - Elizabeth C.

To live in the moment, loving everything and everyone around me. - Rita K.

To go more slowly and be more mindful of everything. Create situations instead of falling victim to them. - Kathleen S.


Quotes from Gandhi, Charles Richards and Eleanor Roosevelt gave our conversation a sense of productive urgency, a video exploration of the symbolic lotus flower encouraged us to overcome obstacles, and several inspiring images spread warm energy throughout our community.

The sun has set on Carpe Diem week. We have just one more thought to add- Move forth with confidence and SEIZE LIFE. Make your dreams a reality. This moment is all we have, now let’s make it count!
