“People say you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.
The truth is, you knew exactly what you had; you just thought you’d never lose it. The truth is that the best things in life are the things we notice least. The truth is that you always hurt the ones you love.
We never notice the person who’s done a good job quietly for years, but we notice the one day they don’t. We don’t notice the person quietly carrying the burdens of the world on their back, but we notice when they complain about it in a moment of weakness. And we definitely don’t notice the person making sure everything runs smoothly, too busy to talk about it or take praise for it, until one little piece of debris gets past them in the juggling act and we get irritated.
Like air, it’s probably the most important thing in the world, do you notice and appreciate it?”
