Memento mori is a latin word that roughly means “remember (that) you will die”.
I think about this phrase whenever I feel embarrassed, shy or am not backing myself.
Stop and think – what have you really got to lose? Life is our one big opportunity, we have one shot to make the most of our time.
Don’t wait for it to pass you by. Don’t waste it – memento mori!
