You don't know what you got till its gone

I have recently been reminded that you shouldn't take anything for granted. As each day seems to draw by faster and faster, we forget to stop, step back and enjoy the view. I know the attractions of that next big high (next holiday, next paycheck, next latest must have fashion accessory), but how many of us are grateful of where we are already? Dissatisfaction is so easy to listen to, but when a good thing goes you'll miss it:

"Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone"

This fits in very closely with the Buddhist teachings which I've taken to heart. Everything that is here and now we should endevour to appreciate, and when tomorrow becomes today we should appreciate that as well. Its almost as if there are these treasures that we pass by every day because we've got our sights fixed too firmly on a bit of pretty glass in the distance.
