Everything in life is only temporary. Forever is non-existent. Experiencing life and knowing that it is temporary is both a blessing and a curse.
When I was working a closing shift last night I accidentally dropped my citrine (my favourite gemstone) and it shattered into a million pieces – well maybe a million is a slight exaggeration. My best friend bought me that and it was shaped of a heart. Citrine is a yellow gemstone – my favourite colour. It was poetic that it shattered when it fell on the floor. My friend and I no longer talk anymore and our friendship died a few months ago. It’s almost like a part of me died with it.
Upon hearing all of the broken pieces hit the floor my immediate reaction was to pick up all of the pieces. But since we just turned the lights off that was merely impossible. When my friendship collapsed I wanted to pick up the pieces and tried my best to repair it. But I couldn’t.
Everything that breaks cannot be repaired to the way it was before it shattered. Somethings are best left broken. It is useless to water dead plants that cannot be saved.
It’s hard to accept that nothing lasts forever but when you do, your life will change. You will appreciate whatever emotion your feeling, you appreciate the people who are apart of your life. They are all part of your story. They helped shaped you into the person you are now.
The curse of knowing that everything is temporary is that all of the good moments and memories you share with people will not last forever. No matter how hard you try to make it last forever. It won’t. But it should motivate you to make awesome memories with them whilst they are still part of your life and to not take anything or anyone for granted because you never know when something apart of you will come to an end.
It is a blessing because just like all of the enjoyable times are short lived so are our worst feelings and hardships. They won’t last forever either. It gives us hope to never let the bad times bring us down. Your hardships allow you to grow when you accept and learn throughout your difficult times.
Living life with less is best because nothing is permanent and neither are your belongings since you will lose and break many of your prized processions throughout your life. So enjoy everything because it won’t last forever.
If everything lasted forever you wouldn’t appreciate it as much because it would always be there and you wouldn’t be able to grow from your losses.
Seize every moment life offers you. Never allow yourself to feel down because something good will happen right around the bend.
