Momento Mori - “Remember Death”
I purchased this coin bracelet from @myintent to remind myself whenever I look down at my wrist to remember that ONE DAY I’M GOING TO DIE. We all are going to die. That thought alone can either scare you, or it can motivate you to go after what you want in life. For me, its motivating. -
It takes a level of awareness to live your life as if you are going to die tomorrow while PLANNING to live a full and happy life. A lot of people throw out the term YOLO (you only live once) and use it as justification to do dangerous things, or to eat unhealthy, or to drink obscene amounts of alcohol (trust me i’ve been there). But what this term really means is that you should be living with the awareness that you could die tomorrow while PLANNING to live a full life. This is key, if you plan on living a full life, would you be eating unhealthy? Would you be stressing over the little things? Would you be staying stuck at a job you hated? -
So, let me ask you, if you were going to die tomorrow, would you want to do what you are about to do today? -
For me, the answer is a YES and has been for the last year. I am studying something I love. I am learning how to be a healer. Each and every day I step into the vibration of making this world a better place. The vibration of immersing myself in a medical philosophy that is 3000 years old. The vibration of striving to be the best I know I can be. The vibration of learning, of exploring, of endeavoring to live a life I IMAGINE. Not one imagined for me by my parents, or society, or molded by the opinions of my friends. The vibration of love for this one precious thing I have called MY LIFE. -
You’re going to die one day. Love each other. Love yourself. Go after what you want. Love fiercely, think boldly, fail bravely, and achieve brilliantly.
Remember Death, don’t wait for it to be too late.
