It’s pessimistic and quite strange to think that everything is temporary.
But lately I’ve realized it’s childish and close minded to rely on certain things or people for happiness. We look to these things for fulfillment– and for varying periods of times we do experience this satisfaction– but naturally and with time, these things fail to make us happy. Disheartening as it is, it’s natural as we grow and discover our likes and dislikes on this extensive journey through life. Everything is temporary. Whether it’s losing interest in certain hobbies or straying away from people you love, each period in your life is blessed with few moments that bring happiness to your life. Yet as we keep moving forward, we tend to leave these things behind. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a nostalgic and pleasing warmth when you rediscover and return to something you once loved.
As nothing is forever and everything is temporary, this does not mean that there are no constants in life. Though sometimes inconsistent, we are blessed with close friends, loving family, and health. They will always be there for you– your source of happiness when all else fails. (That is, if you are surrounded with the right people and you care for your body… But that’s a whole other blog post)
As always, thanks for stopping by.
