Just as we were somehow granted life, some day we will have to return it.
Our existence is based on borrowed time.
Let that soak in for a moment and don’t try to dismiss it.
We are living on borrowed time and a period will come when it’ll have to be given back.
Amongst all of the cares and concerns that fill up our daily lives, the fact remains that it’ll cease to exist at some point.
Poof, into thin air.
We all have our own struggles to deal with, some certainly worse than others. But identifying ourselves from a filter through them is optional.
It’s up to us to choose how we perceive the ups and downs as well as how much of our limited time we want to spend being consumed by what is or could go wrong.
In the end, what can really be worse than ceasing to exist?
Practice taking a mental step back every so often.
From this perspective try to discard the trivial and focus on what truly matters.
Learn to accept what isn’t in your control and do your best to work on what is in your power.
Each and every day, appreciate the seconds that you have while you still have them with whomever you have them with.
Time is ticking.
“Keep the spirit inside you undamaged, as if you might have to give it back at any moment.” – Marcus Aurelius
