What You Got Till It’s Gone . . .

There is a song, Big Yellow Taxi, with the line “don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got till it’s gone . . .”  Well, I think there is some real truth to that.  Often times we take for granted the moments and time we have, with loved ones, friends, etc.  It is a strange thing how we let that happen and often fail to appreciate what we have right now.  The constant yearning and search for the next great thing, the next better thing, doesn’t allow us to really appreciate or make the most of what is right there.   It is sad that this is the case, why can’t we let go and say yes, this moment, this person, this is where I should be and enjoy it.   I suppose it takes some effort to do that, not be in the constant search for the next, better, brighter, nicer, etc.  A life lived like that seems to be missing something to me.  It isn’t that we should stop striving and hoping, but I think opportunities and happiness are missed out on when you live in that constant “searching” state, and never take in the moment and those around you now.  Just my thoughts :0)
