The question is:
What's the most important thing you've ever lost?
Whilst thinking about which would be
the most important, I came up with a few other things.
Here they are:
My sense of humour
My first pair of clip on earrings (in the sea)
My camera (in the sea)
My dad (at the age of 8 but found him 30 years later)
My first love (still missed)
My nerve (especially near water)
Several (other) men
Some good friends (sadly)
My mind (postnatal depression) but luckily.........
I have that back now (my mind not the PND)
My pants! (no more information available)
My patience (often)
Sleep (several reasons for this both good (great!) and bad)
My job (only once)
My keys (at least once a week)
My teeth (no, I'm not that old ...just my baby ones!)
Some have been lost with regret (youth)
Some have been lost though carelessness (good friends)
and some with glee (virginity)!
But one thing I keep reminding myself not to lose is this phrase:
''you don't know what you've got 'till its gone''.
So while I lament the loss of some treasured things I need to remember how much I haven't lost. How much I have to be thankful for, and all the things I take for granted in my life. I need to remember how important they all are (especially my loved ones), because if I'm careless I could lose them.............
and you don't know what you've got 'till its gone.
