Flying by the seat of my pants. . .lost my organization about a week ago! Did lose it or forget it? Will you forgive me for forsaking my fabuloso plans and faking it? hahahah, more alliteration and it’s SO random but that’s just what I’m feeling today!

Faith is what we need whenever we venture into the unknown, too.
Faith is also required when we allow others to see behind the curtains on our lives.
This is tough for me and I’m just recently allowing myself to discover why it’s so difficult.
Being raised with the spoken (and often unspoken) mandate that appearances are essential and keeping the less-than-pretty unseen, I’ve lived 60 (!) years keeping up appearances. Things look pretty much okay on the outside while I’m shriveling/suffering/agonizing/burning/aching/gagging-on-what-I’ve stuffed on the inside.
Time to really journal all of this daily for clarity!
That’s a long time to live that way! I do not believe this is the way God intends for any of us to live and THAT is now driving my Carpe Diem. It has to begin with me – inside me and then spill outside of me to you and you and you. Then you will have Carpe Diem inside you and can beautifully share it with others and others and others, too!
So on a nicer and more creative note. . .here is something I just wanted to do. I encourage you to Carpe Diem today by doing something creative YOU want to do despite others’ timetables, expectations or demands.
Is it perfect? Of course not! Am I satisfied with it for now. Yup! Maybe I’ll go back and add more, move it a bit, retouch it but for NOW I’m G2G with it!
Carpe Diem beloveds!
