Nothing lasts forever...we know that. When do we most often think of that truth though? More often than not, we hear it as an attempt to comfort us during tough times. "Tough times don't last, but tough people do"...you know, something along those lines.
Lately I've been considering another spin, and response. One day, Lord willing MANY days from now, I will say a final goodbye to every relationship I've built and every possession that I own. On that day, will I be able to look back and honestly say that I valued those relationships? Did I invest myself into the lives of those around me? Will I be able to say, with integrity, that I was a faithful steward of the possessions that I owned.
Nothing lasts forever, so take care of everything and everyone while you've got time. I say regularly that there is no heavier weight to bear than regret.
No regrets! Osu!
