That which you take for granted

I lived in Delhi three years, and the only times I went to the park were to see the winter flowers. The only running I ever did there was to run after my then three-year old. It wasn't a place I particularly liked, and I never thought that feeling would change.


But now that I have moved away, and discovered running, one of the few things that I look forward to when I have to visit the city is the jogging track in the park. Sometimes, you have to move away and evolve to appreciate things that were always there.

Very true-you're so deep! It seems your appreciation for the simplest things is never-ending. That's admirable. :)

Natasha - Oh, how right you are! And your post comes at an especially appropriate time for me. I'm so homesick right now for the place I used to live, and of course, didn't truly appreciate when I lived there...

Isn't that the truth?

I agree so much. I do miss nice running trails from where I lived before, but I think I know what I'll miss most when we move from this place... <3

I couldn't agree more. Things become more lovely with older eyes.

It's like looking at the big picture. It isn't until you pull back a bit that you can see the forest for the trees :-)

We evolve all the time... And the pleasure is doubled when we become aware of this.

Very true. I love how you say what needs to be said simply and powerfully.
