Carpe Diem is the Latin phrase for “seize the day” that means to stop waiting and start living. Use this mantra to greet the day with open arms. When you seize the moment you are saying yes to life and life will say yes to you in miraculous ways.

"Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.” ~ Wayne Dyer


Every time you decide to go for it you are seizing the day. Go for it with your physical health, creative expression, personal relationships and spiritual growth, and you’ll not only be seizing the day you’ll be living your life to the fullest.

Make time for your health by declaring it a top priority. When you decide to go for it your body will take you on a journey of self-care that will lead to vibrant health. Seize this moment by deciding to do whatever it takes to be healthy and strong. 

Creative expression takes many forms that include: painting, sculpting, writing, gardening, photography, and creating a product or service. When you choose to go for it as a creative being you will seize every opportunity to express yourself more fully. 

Being in a relationship takes courage. Every time you get triggered emotionally it’s an opportunity to seize the moment and shift your perspective from fear to love. Love is always kind, compassionate and understanding, even when setting healthy boundaries.

A big part of spiritual growth is to do your best in every situation. Although your best may vary from day to day, you can seize the day by showing up fully as the best version of yourself. Living your best life depends on being and doing your best every day.

Every time you make a choice about what to eat you can seize the moment by choosing healthy food. Really go for it by becoming an advocate for organic whole foods that support life on planet earth. Real nourishment comes from healthy environments.

Create a Carpe Diem lifestyle with every choice you make. You’re either going for it or putting your life on hold. When your ego is running your life you tend to maintain the status quo. Choose a soul-directed way of living and you’ll be inclined to seize the day.
