Memento Vivere

The other day I wrote a post about Trivia Crack, remember? It’s the things you learn.

I love to learn new things. Not like Tae Kwan Do or anything of that nature. Well, I’m actually not opposed to learning Tae Kwan Do, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. I like learning things that I am doing in life, along the journey, you know? Memento Vivere is one of those things. I learned it while playing Trivia Crack. I took a guess and discovered the meaning of the Latin phrase Memento Vivere… Remember to Live. I love this!

I love this because sometimes I forget to live. It’s true, I do. It’s an interesting concept. It’s something we do every day, right, living. Or do we? Is going through the motions of another day actually living?

This phrase resonated deep within me because during stressful times I tend to forget to live. It’s understandable. If you do this too, well no big deal. It’s hard to remember to live when you’d rather not. I’m not saying just because we’re trying to get through the day, that puts us on a high-alert suicidal watch or anything. I’m just saying that when you are so bogged down with the weight of the world or the cares of a stressful life event, making it through another day is sometimes all we can muster the strength to do, and can rank right up there with the greatest accomplishments of high-driven people.

Memento Livere, my friend. Remember to Live! And I’m preaching to the choir here. Life is a gift-with all it’s sorrows and joys, because there are treasures to be unearthed all along the way.

Life can throw some pretty painful curve balls, sometimes when we least expect it. “Turn lemons into lemonade”. That’s the deal.

Find the joy. There is always something to be grateful for.

Find the love. There is always someone in need of love.

Find the peace amid the chaos.

Find the Higher Power who can when you can’t.

Problems are like a dirty house in desperate need of a good cleaning, or an undesirable task that keeps getting moved down the long list of things to do. They’re not going anywhere.

In this world you will have trouble. That’s a given.

Memento Livere, Remember to Live through it all.
