It's all temporary

Sometimes I forget that it’s all temporary.

If I had known it would be the last letter or the last phone call I would get from my uncle, maybe I would have cherished it a bit more. If I had known it would be the last time I would hang out with some of my friends, maybe I would have made it count for more. If I had known that the pain from high school, or the challenges of college were all part of the process, perhaps I would have enjoyed it a bit more. If I had known that the heartbreak wouldn’t have lasted forever, perhaps I would have made the decision sooner, and moved on sooner. If I would have understood that every phase in life was just temporary perhaps I would have spent more time just enjoying each phase, each step, each experience…

I want to spend my life enjoying every second, every moment, but it’s not easy… it’s so easy to want to wish that this moment would pass quickly and we would get to the next. It’s so easy to focus on what life would be like if we were married, or if we had the kids, or the grand kids, or the job or whatever… but in the end we end up missing out on life, because life is what is happening to us everyday, whether we’re appreciating or enjoying it or not…

Some days are more challenging than others, some days are more fun than others, some days are more stressful than others… but I’m really trying to remember that the good times and the bad, they’re all temporary… all temporary, so I guess I better just enjoy every moment, and realize that indeed I’m blessed beyond my wildest dreams— And I pray the same for you.
