I always wondered where the expression, “all good things must come to an end” came from and decided to check it out. The saying is approximately 635 years old and the original version was written by Geoffrey Chaucer.
Chaucer met a lot of people in his life and he was able to witness amazing changes in the lives of many. His experiences allowed him to accept the fact that nothing in life is permanent and nothing really matters in life except life itself…After all, your life in the present moment is the only thing you truly possess.
No matter what relationships, loves, joys, or possessions you might enjoy today, your life might be completely changed tomorrow. No matter what expectations or needs you have of those people you rely upon now, they might only be vacant spots in your memory the next time you awake. Enjoy your life as it is in the present and enjoy the people around you now, because the past can never return and the future is only in your imagination. Your only reality is before you at this very moment.
