Many people despair about the transience of things —about times of transition and change.
Afraid of losing what we have, we hold on: to things, people, homes, ideas, plans, goals, projects, relationships, moments.
The idea that we can hold on and escape endings is an illusion.
Nothing is permanent.
Far from being a cause to despair, this transience brings a feeling of peacefulness.
It is a catalyst for gratitude, humility, inspiration, and freedom.
If something isn’t working in your life, you aren’t stuck with it. If you’re not happy with your situation, you can make a change.
You need not wait for a new month, a new moon cycle, a new year, a major milestone, to make a change.
This is the lesson from nature.
Every moment extends an invitation to let go and begin again.
