 In the course of your life, you will experience loss. Sometimes the loss might be minuscule: you went to the store for mint chocolate chip ice cream, and it was sold out. You had to select something else. And at that moment, you experienced the loss of your ability to fulfill your craving for mint chocolate chip ice cream. Other losses feel much more significant: the end of a relationship, your job being eliminated, or your car is totaled in an accident. 

On any given day, you have things that you believe went well, meaning you believe that you got what you wanted, and you have things that did not go according to your plan. This leads us to consider how impermanence can help us face the bigger challenges in life.

The little things that happen to us daily are important pieces of our impermanence practice. Building your acceptance of impermanence daily is critical to decreasing your dukkha and increasing your resilience.
