When I considered temporary, the things that first came to my mind were a fleeting rainbow, a flower, a film of snow down the street, and so on. But in reality, everything in the world is temporary.
We might store the moments in the pictures we click, and the memories we hold close to our hearts, but the essence of life is its transiency.
Robert Frost in his poem “Nothing Gold can Stay” has beautifully illustrated the temporary nature of things.
Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
― Robert Frost
Any reward is only worth the satisfaction it provides; nothing in life can gratify more than contentment. Every moment, I spend with nature, rejuvenates me.
If you want to find peace, go outdoors: bask in the warm sunlight, climb the lush mountains, play with the dancing waves, and gaze at the celestial sky. You might not become the richest or the most successful person; you’ll be the happiest. Is there a better reward?
