Nothing lasts forever. All things are temporary. This is especially helpful to remember when nothing seems to be going our way or when we are having a particularly bad day. Remembering that nothing lasts forever is particularly helpful when we are going through extremely difficult, challenging, or painful experiences.
This is also true of the good times, as well. Nothing lasts, though it is important to remember that each day is an opportunity to do our best to make things better.
The only thing we can control is our own “self” and how we react to and interact with everything around us.
We choose our outcomes. Our thoughts, words, and actions dictate the results in our lives. We are responsible for ALL of it. We earn everything that comes into our lives. The consequences we live with every day are a direct result of the thoughts, words, and actions we have (or have not) been consistently thinking, speaking, and doing, and how we choose to react to and interact with everything and everyone.
We can eat an apple every day, or a bag full of candy. We can go on a walk or to the gym every day, or sit in front of the television and do nothing. Our thoughts are the same way: We can choose to fill our heads with healing, empowering, highly vibrational, energetic thoughts, or we can think of nothing. We become what we think about.
It is the little things that matter most. Practiced repeatedly, the little things pick up momentum, accumulate, and become bigger things. CONSISTENCY COMPOUNDS. Whoever said the small things don’t matter has never seen a match start a wildfire, or spent a night in a tent with a mosquito.
Nothing lasts forever. To make each moment matter, we can treat every moment as though it could be our last and make the most of each moment that passes. Enjoyment and gratitude for even the most difficult of moments, and searching for the lesson, an empowering meaning, or purpose in all of them, is up to us.
Today I will remember that all things are temporary and I will work hard to be the best version of myself I can be, enjoying each moment throughout the day as a gift, regardless of how things are going.
Tom Bilyeu interviewed Tim Storey on his YouTube show, Impact Theory. Tim is an excellent example of someone who realized that nothing lasts forever, and how to optimize the enjoyment and our effectiveness in creating enjoyment, throughout this life journey.

Remember: Mindset matters. Character counts. That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives. WE CREATE our personal realities.
