So many things are taken for granted in life. Relationships, employment and education opportunities, friendships, and life in general, are all things I have seen being taken for granted. Many times as the quote goes, “you never know what you have until it’s gone”. Many people in life take for granted things that they are used to having. These are usually things that they have not gone without for over a long period of time. I must admit to myself that I have before taken someone special in my life for granted, and didn’t know how to handle them being gone. When my father was a live, he tried to spend time with me every opportunity that he had. By me being a young teenager and caught up in the mist of my “young life”, I didn’t pay him the attention that I should have. Before I knew it, he was gone. He passed away and my life hasn’t been the dame since. This just showed me what happens when things are taken for granted. As of now I am more appreciative of things and the people in my life. I enjoy them while I have them and cherish moments spent with loved ones. Til this day I reminisce on the moments I’ve had with my father and I always dream on times we could have spent together. To avoid such pains and heartaches, it is vital that you appreciate everything in your life because it can be taken away without notice. My advice is to live life to the fullest and to not take a single breath for granted.
