Nothing lasts forever

Nothing lasts forever.
Having my parents divorced taught me that.
Having my grandmother die prematurely made me realize that.
Even the best marriages and the worst sufferings end with death.
Everything changes.
Nothing stays the same.
We speak of forever as if we are not bound by our own mortality.
If time and space didn’t matter.
It does matter.
It is true that the soul is immortal
But why waste a life of happiness here
To ask for compensation elsewhere?
Do good things for their own sake.
Laugh more.
Live more.
Do not just merely exist.
Never cease to smile because
Nothing is permanent.
