I hesitated to make this name because, if I’m honest, it sounds pretty grim when it’s not in latin, doesn’t it? Memento Mori is a lot more cute, but the meaning is the same - remembering that your life is indeed finite.
As I get older, I think this sinks in a lot more. It’s started to hit me that while I might be young at heart, my body doesn’t agree. And that’s a bit hard to accept - this feeling like I won’t be here forever. But I think there’s power in it too. Remembering that my life is finite is what drives me to be a better husband, father, brother and son. It’s what pushes me to work so hard to make an impact, knowing that even though my time here is short, the hope is that the work I do here will far outlive me through the betterment of others.
The art on this wonderful reminder contains elements from the French painter Philippe de Champaigne’s ‘Still life with a skull’ - a type of art called vanitas of which the Tate Museum refers to as “A still life artwork which includes various symbolic objects designed toremind the viewer of their mortality and of the worthlessness of worldly goods and pleasures.”
Of all the vanitas pieces that exist, this one was my favorite because it has the clearest elements in it: The tulip, for life, the hourglass for time, and the skull for death.
That, my friends, is all we get.
I hope you find this reminder as useful as I have!
Our ZOXLOX Keychain converters are inspired by ingenuity from Zoxers in our own community. In our VIP group, members started posting pictures of clamps that turned their ZOX into keychains. Unfortunately, the clamps were 1-time use and would ruin their ZOX. So, we stepped in to create something amazing.
ZOXLOX are easy to use converters that will turn your ZOX Singles or Straps into the best keychains in the world. All you do is remove the screw, insert your ZOX wristband, and push the screw back in so the wristband is looped over it. Then, screw it back into place and just like that, your ZOX wristband is now a ZOX Keychain. And the best thing about it? You can easily swap your ZOX wristbands in and out to change your keychain any time you feel like it.
Every wristband made is a limited edition work of art for your wrists. ZOX are reversible with a design on one side and a positive message on the inside. Every ZOX is individually laser cut with a serial number to ensure authenticity.
