You never truly know the value of a moment until it’s over. It can be one of the best moments in your life and you feel like you’re at the top of the world and things can only get better from here, but even then you cannot fully appreciate a moment for all it is truly worth. The value of something always comes after that something has passed on by.
The value can come in second, days, or even a few months to years later. But the value will come later in life because that is sadly how it works. The best year of your life can not be fully appreciate until you get to the next year and it is not as amazing as the last. Until we know disappointment and pain we will never know the truly joy that came along with the good moments.
Unfortunately life has two sides. There are the good days and then there are the bad days. But we cannot know the extent of the good or the day without the other. Bad days would just be normal days if we did not have the good to tell us otherwise and the good days would just be mundane if we did not have the bad days to tell us they were special. We must have the bad to tell us how good the good was.
If we constantly lived life happy, we would never hold any moment above the others as being more special and happier than the last. Pain creates a sense that joyful moments are far more important than we ever could have imagined. The things that make us happy will not last forever and we will encounter bad days again.
In those days, we will be reminded just how beautiful it was to be happy and experiencing the best life had ever given us. We will long for the days that have passed and be confused as to why it all had to go south so quickly.
However, we must remember that even when we are in the depths of despair there is still hope. There is still joy to be found ahead of us. The dark days will not last forever and before we know it there will be moments filled with happiness and incredible beauty. We must stay strong and continue on our journey with strength.
Until Next Time,
