Everything is temporary.
I was reminded of this today as I wallowed in self-pity after what has been a difficult week. Nothing, not our joys or or sorrows, last forever. Everything is temporary. And now that I remember that, I want to kick myself for all the times I haven’t appreciated the good, the times I let the bad bring me down. Because whether I realize it or not, it all fades away eventually. I have to love each day for what it is, not just when things are good, but even when things are hard. The happiness of a specific moment may not last forever, but neither will this stress, this loneliness, this confusion.
This too shall pass.
