The saying goes "People never realize what they have until it's gone."
Truth be told, the majority of us can probably testify to the accuracy of those words in some way or another. The rest...the minority...they're too busy not appreciating something or someone to actually take note of how different things could be, sans those aspects of their lives.
Or maybe you're that someone or something somewhere to some other person who is somehow unaware of your importance to them. You're just sitting backstage whilst they get closer to a standing ovation at the curtain call of their life...kind of like an ornament...a piece on the set.
But dare we step back for a minute and question everything?
What if Juliet never had a balcony to stand on? What of odette never crossed paths with an evil scorcerer? What if the Titanic had been just five meters west of that ice berg?
You see...there is always something or someone that will make a story what it is. A mere 'small detail' in someone's life can be of the greatest importance. It is not until we view the scenario without the existance of that thing or person that we ascertain a clear understanding of how completely dissimilar our lives could be.
The thing is...more often than not - it's not your cell phone or facebook or your house or the college you go to that go unappreciated...it's the people in all those aspects of your life.
What would life be like without your sister, without your brother? Who would you run to if that person you truly confide in wasn't there? What if you never went to that party that you met your boyfriend at? Where could you find comfort if the person you find it in didn't exist?
Then again, we cannot ponder over every single what if out there.
However is there truly any harm in taking time to examin the things that we gain from?
There is no wrong in showing appreciation for the people that make us great. for they too are remarkable.
