It means ‘remember that you will die’. It really means ‘don’t forget to live’. Live every second of your life. Live every emotion, hardship, joy, tiredness, strength, weakness, hope. Live all of it because it will be gone faster than you think. Live all of it because how do you know if something else is coming? Live without fear because fear will hold you back and will not get those moments back. When they are gone, they are gone. I try to live intentionally. Every day. Because Life is really is precious.
note: my portraits don’t always turn out how I imagine them. Not a single one of this morning’s session was in focus. For the record, I’m wearing Day of the Dead bones and roses tattoos.
