Everything is borrowed

Everything you have isn’t really yours; you’re simply borrowing it.
 
Your family and friends don’t belong to you. You don’t own your partner. They aren’t going to live forever and neither are you.
 
One day you’ll drive your car for the last time. One day your house, garden and office will belong to someone else.
 
Ownership of anything is temporary and that’s what makes it so special. If it lasted forever it would lose its appeal.
 
Treat everything like it’s expiring. Every relationship, experience or possession. Because it really is.
