A Word for Celebrating Life

Memento Mori • (mə-men-tō-mȯr-ē) • noun Definition: Remember death Origin: Latin I would not consider myself a morbid, morose, or macabre person, but I do think about death every day. It is neither something that is always on my mind nor a thought that inclines me to take on a sour disposition. Instead, it is a thought and an awareness that compels me to live my life and not succumb to illusions that I will live forever or always be youthful.
