Words—Israt Jahan

The phase that I’ve chosen to write is, “It’s temporary.” This is something I tell myself every day to get the will to wake up. It helps me finish my work and do things that I don’t want to. It’s just a reminder that there’s always an end and that I don’t have to suffer for too long. Everything is temporary, school, work, emotions, etc… But most importantly, life is temporary. This sounds negative, which it is, but it’s also a motivation to live life and not just waste it at home all the time or just working and doing things that’s not let you experience life. Especially work and school which takes up the most time of our lives and in the end might leave us too old to have the will to do anything. Let alone the money, seeing as how hard it is to retire in our present time. Everything is temporary so we have to find a way to make use of it all before we reach the end, even if it’s a bad thing, we need to make use of it and learn from it. Living life doesn’t mean traveling the world, living life can be as simple as taking a walk in the park, going out to eat, just doing something that you enjoy. I’m sure someone is thinking, “You’re talking about life so much. Why wasn’t your phase ‘Live Life?’” The reason I used “It’s temporary” is because it highlights the end and the moment. You have to live in the moment to have an ending that doesn’t disappoint. Because everything is temporary until it’s all gone.

    This is interesting. Can you broaden it to include some examples from what you see in the world around you? Has anybody else used this term or a variation of it lately that you could add? I wonder, not to make you do this but just me thinking, might there be something to also think about what’s permanent and why they’re both important? Just a thought…
