Havamal Snippets 40: Enjoy it while you have it

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
40. Of the property
which he has gained
no man should suffer need;
for the hated oft is spared
what for the dear was destined.
Much goes worse than is expected.

Enjoy it while you have it. 'Saving for a rainy day' only means that your effort was used to avoid deprivation.
