If there is anything to be learned from a landmark like Casa Loma, it’s that nothing can last forever. The story of Casa Loma begins with a brilliant business man who builds his dream home, filling it with art and fine European furnishings. But as the war broke out, his fortunes crumbled due to bad speculations in his attempts to save his fortune and the overwhelming costs of expansion.
I’ve come to understand that life is always changing, like a river that can flow softly and swiftly, or raging with rapid waters. The truth is, you just don’t know what is around the corner. It’s best to adapt a neutral way of looking at things, not letting your emotions get the better of you. It’s not to say that you should become emotionless, but rather to be a master over your emotions. To not be overcome with them and react to them. Be present in the moment and appreciate it for what it’s worth. Don’t get ahead of yourself, because plans and projections don’t always work out. Be prepared to move on instead of trying to hold on. It is better to have cherished the joyful moments that you had than to have spent it waiting for more to come. This philosophy creates balance in one’s life, which allows for greater happiness and fulfillment.
