This Too Shall Pass

This too shall pass.

Whatever this is…

This feeling…

This phase…

This weather…

This illness…

This trial…

This season…

This mood…

This thing.

Everything is fleeting.

Some more so than others…

But it’s all temporary and transitory.

It will all leave its mark on your life but eventually whatever it is that’s taking up your time, energy and attention will be but a memory.

And then something else will blow in and demand your consideration.

The reality of that is a knife that cuts both ways.

Some things that pass through your life will be missed…

Others not so much.

Some will be those that you wished, worked and planned for…

Others you’ll never see coming.

Some will break you open…

Others will put you pack together again.

It will all teach you something about life and love and, most especially, you.

You are the only constant in your life…

The rock in the middle of the stream.

Everything else will pass.

You never will.
