Ancient Stoics and Latin Christians believed that every day we should “memento mori,” we should remember our death. This practice was not to contemplate how you might die, but that you will die. As will I. And everyone else.
Which is what makes life so precious. And which is what gives value and power to the choices we make in how to live this day. Not how we lived yesterday or last year, nor how we plan to live tomorrow or next year. But how we live today. This is THE day you have. The only one.
We live our lives, spending our time (our most precious resource) moment-by-moment. Sometimes, time slips away… with us making little progress (or maybe even some regress) toward what we want in life.
We move toward our hopes and dreams… we carry out our life purpose… we make an impact in the world in this moment, this day.
It is the only one we have.
In this podcast episode, we talk about living life more fully, more in the moment — today. In this moment.
