Seize the Day (Carpe diem)


Friday, January 04, 2008

Loved this quote from the Spark Reflections email:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

- Mark Twain, American writer

Yes! I remember telling a friend who didn't want to bring her swimsuit to Cancun that she needed to consider two things... did she really want to miss out on snorkeling and second, did she think her coworkers looked that much better (e.g. thin & svelte? and the answer was, they weren't). So she seized the day & went snorkeling & had a great time. I'll always be glad that God gave me the wisdom to know what to say & when to say it.

    HI Kim

I have that quote on my Spark Posts as well as my email signature. I have had numerous positive remarks about it. I don't remember where I first found it but I am so glad I decided to use it. It is a blessing to know it is encouraging others as much as it has encouraged me.
