I’m Melinda. I’m a former free-thinker, now a believer of God. Always a work-in-progress as we all are. So don’t believe those dang ads telling you that you’ve arrived. The only place you’ve arrived is in their showroom and their bank account.

Why am I writing this blog?

For the sheer joy of letting my thoughts flow, my fingers dancing on the keyboard, and making music with words.
It’s a creative outlet.
A documentary of life with its madness and mundaneness.
To encourage you and me to live life the “carpe diem” way.
And if my writing resonates with you, then let’s dance. Or something like that.

Learn more about my version of carpe diem here.

How often do I post?

I typically post something new on Sundays, and maybe one more in the week.

For the rest of the (sometimes crazier, weirder) stuff which I neither can contain in my brain nor this blog, you’ll find them on my Instagram: Carpediemology.  

About this blog

A documentary of life with its madness and mundaneness.

At the heart of it, I write about God—a lot.

Knowing God and finding hope through Him: our Maker and Creator. And I make no apologies for it. After all, if you’ve tasted the finest steak (or tofu, if you are a vegan), you’d have no qualms sharing that excellent news with others, yes? Something so Good isn’t meant to be hidden.

This blog is meant to be inspirational—not of the cupcakes and everything nice kind, but being able to thrive in the face of storm kind. In some way, I hope this blog inspires you further to living an intentional life of no regrets.

Carpe Diem: Seize the Day!
Philippians 3:7-16
