Everything in this life is transient. Some things and people are around in your life longer than others, and sometimes are harder to let go of because of this. And in the end, you have to let go of everything so that you can move on. I am not suggesting that you get rid of everything and everyone and live the life of a recluse. I am suggesting that you acknowledge and appreciate everything and everyone in your life, because you don’t know how long they will be with you.
