“Everything and everyone around us, is fleeting and impermanent” – Brianna Wiest

Also: “Property is theft. Nobody ‘owns’ anything. When you die, it all stays here.” – George Carlin

It’s up to us to build our lives how we want it and create our own inner happiness, we are the one constant in our lives, our own best friends.

Things on the outside are fleeting and impermanent, coming and going throughout life at their own pace, like technology, products, furniture, art, films, experiences, rain, sun, our appearances, friends, lovers, pets and family. But things on the inside can be fleeting and impermanent too, like thoughts, feelings, moods, memories, opinions, problems and perspectives.

This helps ease the fact that bad things will come, as they will also pass like bad weather, life is a series of moments. I think it’s worth being mindful that what we have is not ours. The awesome neon light I got for a birthday present will go back into the world when I’m dead, I can’t take it with me, which is depressing but a freeing fact of nature in a way. Nothing really lasts forever so don’t suffer too much, quit complaining, accept and live, with joy. (Easier said than done of course!)
