The reality of losing things

When i was together with all of them, i wasted most of my time making issues, or getting angry, or being not happy about something. I made promises to my pet about taking her out and then often ended out with friends, i fought with my mom on small things and i never had a single dinner with my daddy. My brother lived his own separate life in which i never cared to peep. I did all of this coz’ life was happy and smooth and i was just enjoying myself and then i shifted to America, leaving them all behind and realizing what all i missed every single day of my life. It’s true – we often realize the value of things once we have lost it.

There are many things we fail to realize the true value of until they are missing from our lives. Think of technology, the Internet and your cell phone. You do not realize how vital your cell phone is to your life until you have to go days without it. Enjoy the little things in life because someday you will realize they were the big things.

This is a common thing once a relationship reaches its conclusion. When you become complacent with your partner, it is easy to fall into this trap. Happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting what you don’t have, rather it’s recognizing and appreciating what you do have. If someone once made you happy, there is a great chance they still will. Think about it — maybe you are bored with your familiar routine, but that doesn’t mean you should get rid of it. Don’t lose something you have for something you think you want.

Coz after all you wont enjoy the 10,00 spoons when all you wanted was a knife 🙂

  1. “Happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting what you don’t have, rather it’s recognizing and appreciating what you do have.” That is the bottom line, Kruti! A great insight everybody should remember!

      1. I experienced the same thing when we lived in the States far away from my family. But I don’t think we realize it late. It just is what comes along with change. Only change can make us see the difference. The only thing we need to do is making it different now.

      2. Yeah! Btw i am reading ur book and i am hosting a book exchange this sunday so i am thinking if giving ur book to a girl i think needs some self help and then she will return back 🙂
