“Because there’s no perfect place anywhere. One of the Buddha’s first teachings was that life is suffering. He didn’t just mean heartrending, painful, traumatic suffering, but something more basic than that. It doesn’t matter how good we have it or how basically happy we are, things arise every day that leave us feeling discontented or disappointed.”

You cannot appreciate truly what’s in front of you until its gone. You truly don’t understand what you have until its gone. When its gone you remember the details that made you feel happy or special.
One of the best feeling in life for me is the feeling of gratefulness. When you are feeling down or sad its hard to see and realize our blessings.
