At last, the Final Day!


This last item is for a motto or philosophy in life. I have come across this term while researching about North Carolina. You see, they have a very interesting state motto:

Esse quam videri

That is a Latin phrase which means “To be, rather than to seem [to be]”. Quite a number of schools and organisations are using this phrase as their motto, and I can see why. It is a wonderful motto. Be true, be who you are, be proud of what you are made of and are capable of doing, rather than pretending to be. In this fast-paced world that requires us to perform different roles, staying true and being true is hard to do. So I use this powerful Latin phrase to remind myself that everyday.

(Now, you may send in the Mariachi band! I have finished the 30 Day Challenge! Ahhhh!!!)
