Many times we spend our lives just wishing…
I wish the day was over
I wish time would just go faster
I wish Saturday would come faster
I wish I was done with school
I wish I was 18 already
I wish I had my own house
But what happens when you don’t have anything to “wish for” any more?
What happens once school is done, Saturday has arrived, you have a job, own a house, etc
The “I wishes” gets replaced with “if Only’s“.
We end up wishing we could go back to school, staying with the parents, having no bills, having no worries, etc
We end up one day looking back at life and reminiscing about the “good old days”, but only this time around, the good old days (that use to be so bad back then) is filled with good memories.
Strange how we don’t appreciate what we have, until its gone. How in the Present we only see the negative but yet when looking back at the Past we notice all the good.
Did it all just suddenly appear and BANG there is all the good…
No, its there, we ‘re just not seeing it.
Instead of waiting 10 – 15 years for the Good to appear, how about we try to find the good today and appreciate it.
