No matter how awful or how wonderful things are right now, it will all change. It will not stay the same forever. Sometimes this can be a tough lesson, but it is worth learning.
If things are awful, it is reassuring to know that things will not stay the same forever.
However, if things are wonderful – we can become rigidly fixed in keeping everything the same. And that is not possible. We set ourselves up for disappointment when we insist that everything stay exactly the same. We also miss out on great new opportunities that can expand us and help us grow.
We cannot control everything. Having an open and unattached mindset can be very helpful. We can enjoy our present wonderful moments and still look forward to new adventures and new experiences.
