I am not feeling well at the moment.

Right now is probably the worst time to feel this way, between Christmas and my birthday, but it was bound to happen.

Sometimes I think that I'm gradually losing nearly everyone and everything I love; everything is slipping through my fingers and I'm just left to wallow in the confusion of it all. I question now more than ever: is it better to grab on to whatever we have to preserve it, or to just accept that everything in life is in constant flux and nothing ever remains permanent?

A friend of mine, whose wisdom leaves me astonished, told me the other day that our existence is a gift. Treat it that way, because what was given to you can always be taken away.

It will be taken away.

  1. The way I like to look at it is that nothing lasts forever and that is a good thing. As hard as loss is to deal with, the alternative would be so much worse. If the good things lasted forever, the bad stuff would have to also.
