I can't exactly pinpoint what it is about this quote, but when I saw it, it really struck me. I wrote it down AND made it my facebook status (I know, so serious...). I feel like this makes you kind of take a look at your life and the things and people in it and evaluate whether you appreciate them or if you are letting them slip ahead or leaving them ignored. I actively try to make people in my life feel like I appreciate them, I truly feel like it is one of the most important things in any relationship that you have. A lot of people think that giving and receiving is appreciation, but for me its just a phone call, a card, a text message, a hug. Showing that appreciation can be so simple and yea of course its always nice and fun to make a grand gesture, but not everyone has the means to do so. The little things usually mean more anyway. So do me a favor, this weekend, take a look at your life: What/Who do you appreciate? Why do you appreciate them/it? How do you make them feel or show appreciation for having that thing or person in your life?
Don't let the important things slip out of your fingers. It sucks to appreciate what you had.
