In Greek mythology there were three goddesses of fate - Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. They controlled the mother thread of life of every mortal from birth to death. Clotho's task was to spin the life thread while Lachesis determined its length and Atropos cut off when the hour of death is reached.

This thread is a little messy, it's not perfect. A little tangled here and there but it holds together. Life is sometimes tough and it is not a straight line, but you go through the mess stronger. The Thread Of Life is a symbol for valuing the time we have and getting the most out of it.
