Life is Fleeting

One of the most difficult aspects of life is realizing that it is never static. Life is ever-changing. You cannot bottle any one moment and preserve it in any way other than in your memory.

And thus, if every moment is fleeting, how do we enjoy the present? Because it will be no more than a moment in time, gone as quickly as it came, do our actions even really matter?

They may not. But the fact is the present is the only moment we can control. We can long for the past. Or hope for the future. But we can't do anything about either. We only have power over the present.
