Temporary, Everything Is Temporary
The car we drive, the house we live in, the job that pays for both……they are all temporary.
More importantly……..life here is temporary.
We……okay maybe it’s just me, I tend to take this for granted. Don’t get me wrong…..I’ve become more appreciative of things and particularly life everyday. Not in some sort of sad way…..but realizing that this life is special, it’s for me to live and experience. It shouldn’t be a burden, it should be a delight, a joy, a pleasure and exciting journey thru time here.
My idea of life has always been an evolution. Meaning I saw more of what it was for and to me. That the moments of life were intended for my pleasure, the moments with others for our sharing. We don’t get them back……they are gone.
Even the loss or rather the acquisition of a job ends just as it started in one moment. The thing about a job is that we marry ourselves to that job more so than we do to any one other thing or person. We dedicate ourselves to it’s existence 33.3% of our adult lives. We end up just like we were before we got it……but, all that time spent that we put that job before others in our lives in the name of doing it for those same others.
The people we love in our lives are temporary. And you are temporary in theirs. None of us get out of this alive. Albert Einstein said, “An individual who should survive his physical death is also beyond my comprehension, nor do I wish it otherwise; such notions are for the fears or absurd egoism of feeble souls.” This moment, this here and now is the important part of our lives and should be shared with those we love. Put them first, not some profession, activity or object. Those too are temporary.
Everything is like the shoes on our feet……temporary.
Believe me I didn’t intend for this to be a depressing moment, though it may have strayed that way. Because my intention is that we appreciate this life more than the material contents.
Embrace the relationships! Make them count!! Make them a priority!!! Look past what you may call a fault…..something that has gotten in your way in that relationship and just embrace and appreciate.
You and I, being temporary only get this chance. Let’s make it count.
Peace, love, and beaches,
