Everything is Maintenance, a post describing how everything needs investment, time, or energy to survive.
In nature, flowers need water, for example, to survive. When it comes to buildings, a wall needs a new layer of paint after some years. Phones need to charge, and the same with computers. Cars must be repaired, tires have to change, and so on.
Your room needs cleaning if you want it to be visitable. Looking at your health, you need to keep eating healthy to be in shape. The same goes for maintenance for exercise. You need to keep maintenance for the body, to be slim, have muscles and a six-pack. Friendships, for example, can be weird if you don’t spend with your friends because you lose touch and have nothing to discuss.
Your lover can disappear if you don’t keep working on the relationship.
A weblog must keep posting posts to be popular. Your teeth will rot if you don’t regularly brush them.
These are just some examples – that motivate you to keep working, putting in effort and maintenance in the things you care about.
