Savor the Flavor of the Day

I always resist the phrase, seize the day. It sounds to me like a non-idiomatic translation of Horace's carpe diem. But is there a good substitute?

We do have one strongly parallel construction - we speak of snatching moments.

But... moments are so much smaller than days!

Snatch enough moments
along the way
and maybe you'll end up
seizing a day.
