“Sometimes the best way to appreciate something is to be without it for a while.”
This is truly the best way I know how to appreciate something. The second you try taking something for granted, in order to appreciate it again, it has to be taken away from you.
It’s like the girlfriend/boyfriend that you have. You may treat them bad, but the second they are not there, is the second you realize who they are and what they are in your life, it’s the second you miss them and want them back.
And some people do get lucky, because they do get a second chance.
