The best I ever had

Why is it that when somebody dies he or she becomes the best person on the planet?

Why after a love is gone, we realise after a while, that he/she was the “love of our life”?

Why do we have to face loss, in order to find the good aspects of people, places and things?

And you can apply that to practically everything with the exception of abusive people and bad situations. But even in those cases I have seen people who, when an abusive person who made their life a real hell, dies. They begin to find the “good” in them.  Sometimes an excess of dependency? An addiction to old beliefs? Whatever…

The problem is that we keep complaining everyday about almost everything in our world but we rarely stop to smell the flowers on the way.  Are you grateful for the roof upon your head right now? Are you happy because you still have people who care about you and who still ask you in a sincere manner how you are when they see you?

There was a time when I woke up and never gave importance to anything around me.  I thought people, situations and yes, even things would be there forever. I deserved them, therefore they belonged to me.

Time has showed me differently.

And today, there are people who are wondering how things would now be if you had stayed. They are wondering why did they let you go then, and keep you in their hearts and minds all the time.

The same happens in your case. There are people, situations, places and things that are no longer with you and you are now missing and regretting not having been aware of their value when they were a part of your life.

So, if you now know how painful it is having to face “loss” (although most losses are just temporal in some way) then what about beginning to appreciate what you still have got in your life NOW?

  2. How often life passes us by as we wait for something to happen “When I get slim I’ll…” “When I earn more money I’ll….” etc. How important it is to recognise the great things in our lives right now and to stop putting life on hold – something I’ve been guilty of over the years… Thanks for your blog which has reminded to live life ‘now’!…
