5 Unavoidable Truths In Life

I just read the following on a blog and thought I'd pass it along. Good food for thought.

I read once that there are 5 unavoidable truths in life, 5 things that we will experience again and again during our tenure on planet earth.
  1. Everything changes and ends

  2. Things do not always go according to plan

  3. Life is not always fair

  4. Pain is a part of life

  5. People are not loving and loyal all the time

In response, a reader of the blog replied:

Here are the arguments to your five truths:
  1. So enjoy it.

  2. So change plans.

  3. So ensure that you are.

  4. So don't cause it.

  5. So you must be.

This post gave me such a great laugh! It's so true! Basically, quit grousing and learn to enjoy the wonderful unpredictability of life. I read a fantasy book one time, I think it may have been The Serpent Mage, where two wizards were in a competition to create a world. One made an exquisite but static work of art. The other created a world that pulsed and grew and lived, like a marvelous pearl, changing and growing and breathing. Guess which one won the competition?
