Rather than seeing impermanence as bad, we should see it as positive.

Rather than seeing impermanence as bad, we should see it as positive. If things were permanent old situations would continue and nothing could change. Impermanence gives room for things to improve.
It’s like music; sometimes the melody goes up, sometimes down. If there were no change it would always stay on the same pitch. Change allows us to have beautiful melodies.
