Memento Mori

“You don’t recognize the biggest day of your life, not until you’re right in the middle of it. The day you commit to something or someone. The day you get your heart broken. The day you meet your soul mate. The day you realize there’s not enough time, because you wanna live forever. Those are the biggest days. The perfect days.”

Life is short and we don’t live forever. People come and go. People get older and die.  You will get older and die. People move, people change. You move, you change.

It doesn’t matter your beliefs, religion or spiritual inclination, at the end of the day this existence with these people at this time, it only happens once. Enjoy all the moments, both good and bad. Make the most of it.

Say “I love you”, if you want to. Watch that silly movie you adore but doesn’t admit to anyone. Dance as if you were Madonna (even if you’re a guy). Kiss if the moment says to kiss. Hug if the moment says to hug. Measure your actions because they’ll have reactions.

Don’t fight for stupid reasons. Listen to music while watching the rain fall. Sit in the park with your friends on a lazy sunny day. Get married, but only if YOU want to. Treat yourself with food that will make you fat. Travel, alone or with someone else. Have children, but only if you can guarantee you’ll give everything for them.

Don’t stop doing things because there’s no one else to go with you or because you’ll look foolish. All the great moments I had involved a foolish behaviour.

Embrace randomness. Accept that you can’t control everything and make the most out of coincidences. Maybe there’s a God, or something out there and coincidences are part of his plan. Maybe coincidences are just coincidences.

My point is that you should remember you are going to die eventually. Maybe early, maybe late. Maybe you’re immortal and doesn’t know it yet.

And of course life is hard. If it was that easy people would complain it is far to easy.

Be merry and enjoy the little things, like a hot chocolate after a very cold and wet day. There might not be enough time to do everything you want to do (and trust me, I know that if I were ever to read and watch all the movies I want to, I’d need 500 years), but there’s just enough time to do the best you can.
