Nothing Lasts Forever


There are days when you wake up happy and motivated. Everything goes the way you have planed for. You feel inspired and energized. And by the end of the day you realize that you have been really productive and have achieved a lot.

And then, there are the other days. You are upset and down. You donโ€™t feel like doing anything and so demotivated. Nothing goes the way you have planned for.

So, in this case, the best thing to do to turn this bad day/week/month is to shift your focus to gratitude. Just like the happy days didnโ€™t last, those sad days will not last either. Remind yourself of all the good things around you to be grateful for. Personally, I believe in the say โ€œeverything happens for a reasonโ€.

And can you believe that when you think that all this shit happened just at the wrong time, actually it happened exactly at the right time. You know why? Well, you might have been ungrateful for really long time. Or you have just taken things for granted. Or maybe you are not appreciating what you have. Therefore, these sad days work just like a wake up call to remind you that nothing lasts forever. So donโ€™t take your job, for example, for granted. Or donโ€™t take your spouse for granted. Work hard for what you have and appreciate it. What you have might be a dream for others. So, those sad days happen for you to evaluate yourself.

As much as I hate those days โ€“well, everybody does. But I make myself to look at the bright side. Of course, after taking my time in grieving. I take my time in being sad and upset. I might cry a little bit โ€“or more than a little bit if it was a big deal. Once I get all those emotions out of me. I start to process the bright side of what just happened. And I remind myself just like the happy days didnโ€™t last, these days will not last either. After all, everything has an expiry date.




Therefore, I try to use those sad days to remind myself not to take things or people for granted. And I must express gratitude for whatever I have and appreciate everything I have been gifted with. I use those days to think of what I have done in my life so far; the good and the bad. Evaluate my actions and myself. Things I have to change or improve.

And once Iโ€™m back to my senses, I do the best to live my life. Enjoy every moment till it last. Be happy and spread happiness. Be positive and believe that nothing lasts forever.


โ€œanyone who has lost somethingthey thought was theirs forever. Finally, comes to realize that nothing really belongs to them. And if to nothing belongs to me there’s no point wasting my time looking after things that aren’t mine. It’s best to live as if today were the first (or last) day of my life.โ€ย 
โ€•ย Paolo Coelho


Being human, forgetting is very natural. It is part of our system. So, we tend to forget many things. One of the things we keep on forgetting is thanking God and being grateful for what we have. Therefore, we get those sad days to remind us. Iโ€™m blessed to be able to show gratitude and thank my God for everything I have.


Have a blessed Friday and remember nothing lasts forever, pain and trouble included.

  1. Oh well you’re right. Today was shit, right from the beginning, still shit now, but I also do believe in the saying that everything happens for a reason.
    I’ve tried to look at the positive side, which is that I am alive, and that is all because of God’s mercies, but I guess when I start to think of all we should be thankful for, we get a little happier, or less sad.

    1. Sorry to hear that! I hope tomorrow will be a better day. And, yes I totally agree with you, when we think of the things we should be thankful for, we get less sad, and maybe happier because we shift our focus. And, trust me, those shit days won’t last long! … hope you have better days ahead ๐Ÿ™‚
