Words by: Christian Jay Sanchez

Ephemeral: /i-fem-rel,’fe-me-,/
something that lasts for a very short time.

If there is one thing I want to last, it would be happiness. Happiness can fade easily, just like when you saw a bubble floating and you are tempted to touch it, but the moment you touch the bubble, apparently it vanished. Something like, you are happy now, you are enjoying the company of your friends. You guys are laughing boisterously because of your ridiculous shenanigans and then you saw your professor walking in the hallway and she told you that you’ll be having a quiz later.

You see what I mean?

Happiness could vanish easily, itโ€™s not a thing that lasts forever.

But, it’s very important to be happy of course. Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect, you just choose to smile and laugh despite of the fact that you are dealing with stressful problems.

This may sounds trite but indeed, life is too short. Don’t stress yourself too much. Go and take a break. Laugh as much as you can. Do something you love, do something that will make you happy, do the things that will satisfy yourself.


How many times did I mention this word? Maybe 34. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Happiness (okay it’s already 35) always put on your mind that it is ephemeral. So I advised you to
seize the moment when you are happy.

Remember what Buddha said,

There is no path to happiness: happiness is a path.
