I came across this YouTube video and it really resonated with me. Here we see a girl realizing and feeling for perhaps the first time her own mortality and the impermanence of reality:
How many times did I want things not to change and just remain the same as they always were? How many times did I resist change? The end result, just tears at the realization that things were not as I had imagined or hoped them to be. Sadie is a powerful mirror of my own inner child.
I thought the same thing when I saw this video a few days ago.
It made me sad for her that she realized it at such a young age, as I know when I was that young I don’t think I gave it much of a thought.
At the same time, it may be good for her.
It is a hard lesson to learn know matter the age..and this will be a beautiful memory for her to share with her brother for years to come.
