Tout est éphémère

This is a constant and the only one, we all die. Everything is ephemeral. Nothing lasts.

It is so much easier to be detached when you know this, when you realize this. It is easier to take things as they are knowing another thing, person, step will come along.

Although life is suffering, this too is ephemeral. Pain doesn’t last forever. Sadness doesn’t last forever. Joy neither. Joy has to be taken while it lasts, happiness, laughter. Because all of it ends too.

I guess it means we have to live everything to the fullest. While it lasts. Take everything in, laugh big belly laughs, work to live and not live to work, have compassion for others, take care of ourselves to be able to enjoy what will eventually pass.
