Nothing is ever guaranteed, confirmed or promised to be ours for life. Everything is temporary, whether we cling to it tightly or leave it to hang on our sleeve. So we should never take anything for granted, no matter how permanent, stable or insignificant it seems. It might be violently ripped from us or slowly slip away unnoticed. We will be sorry when those things are gone. Be grateful, be considerate, and be appreciative. Treat everything as though it were a miracle, because everything really is. Only then can we quite grasp the reality of happiness.
