DescriptionSeize the day -- it's the personal motto of TOMS Founder and Chief Shoe Giver Blake Mycoskie. And we've engraved this inspiring phrase (in Blake's own handwriting) onto a hand-polished pendant that hangs from a waxed cotton cord.
What carpe diem means to Blake
"When I was 20 and starting my first business, I began using this phrase at the end of all the letters that I sent out. I wanted to make my customers and business partners happy and to leave them with a sense of optimism about working with me. To this day, I still try to end every email that I send - whether to co-workers, friends, family or potential vendors - with this signature phrase. What I love about carpe diem is the idea that every day presents us with moments, some big and some small, to live life a little more fully; to express our passions and creativity; to actively run toward our fears; to finally ask out that special person out on a date. These little moments build upon each other, and before you know it, small acts of courage help to define incredible movements and personal growth. So carpe diem really is a state of mind and a reminder of what's possible." -Blake Mycoskie
