“Make the most of what comes and the least of what goes.”
Nothing last forever.
We tell ourselves this all the time, yet we often go about our lives as if, through some form of sheer will power, we can alter this “Law of Impermanence.”
Rather than struggling to prevent things from being lost or drifting away with time, we can perceive them in an empowering and grateful manner.
We can further our engagement and delight in life by also making the most of the people and events that enter our lives, no matter how brief the time.
How can you exercise your maximizing and minimizing abilities where it counts the most? Sharing your intentions to use these strategies with others will increase your ability, and likely benefit them as well.
