An oft echoing theme I’ve written a lot on this portal is about transience. I want it to be a big part of my thought process as it has several extensions to it.
In the realm of our fleeting existence, we are faced with a disconcerting truth. Though it may be difficult to grasp, we must occasionally remind ourselves that, in the most fundamental human sense, we are living with borrowed time. We go about our lives as if our dreams and ambitions are guaranteed, as if we have complete control over our destiny. However, this perception is an illusion, and within it lies a liberating revelation, accompanied by a sense of urgency that jolts us awake.
Remember, tomorrow is not a guaranteed promise. So, how will you ensure that you wholeheartedly embrace life? How will you ensure that when the time comes for you to depart from this world, your soul will be tender, fulfilled, and enriched by meaningful experiences? A soul that was never burdened by the need to shrink itself, forever waiting for the day it becomes thinner, more attractive, cooler, or more successful before seizing the precious time it has been given.
