memento mori on day of the dead
and so on this day of the dead, we all should be reminded of our mortality. we never know when death will meet us. it could be on the road while we are driving to a party tonight. it could be in our sleep. death could meet us ten years from now after we have contracted cancer. it could be while jogging and experiencing a stroke despite being perfectly healthy. it could be when we choke on a piece of meat while eating dinner tomorrow. every day, remind yourself that today could be your last day among the living. then after you remind yourself of this fact, go about living and performing each act as if it were your last.
memento mori therefore, act as if each moment will be your last.
