I Miss You

It's not always easy to find something good about missing someone when you have no idea when you'll see this person again, or if you're going to see them at all. But as I have to find something to be thankful for and document it on a daily basis, I realize that very having someone to miss at all is a blessing in itself. After all, we only miss the good times, and having a person to miss I'm reminded that I'm the type who is able to have genuine feelings.

  1. So sweet and true. Kind of falls along the lines of "tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all". I believe those memories of good times with someone are sacred. (by the way, black diamonds are just the most difficult courses. There are signs on every run and a green circle is easy, blue square is medium and black diamond is the hardest!)

  2. I sometimes hate the feeling of missing someone but you're right, if you miss someone, you miss the good times that you had... and that's something to be thankful for. Have a great weekend Julia! xoxo

  4. What a lovely thought. This gives me something good to dwell on as I contemplate my dearest friend moving away next month. ...And, I'll have a new vacation spot!

  5. ..well , missing someone and something can be really hard ..I miss my family so much ,can't even describe how much , but we only apreciate that when we far away and family is not around the corner anymore, then it really kick you in ..I even miss my street , my every stone on my way home ,my trees and to pick up my leafs in the autumn ..I miss the scent of air sometimes ..
    ..' miss you' feeling definately shows how genuine we are , how big our hearts is ..it can make us weak but it's worth it because it means we are humans ,we love and feel ..

  6. I know what you mean. In my case, I think I prefer the memory of some people to the real thing.

  8. Leah, exactly! You summed it up perfectly!

    Bo, that's how I do it :) Trying my best to keep the positivity flowing at all times!

    Gropius, yep! A new vacation spot is a bonus :)

    Ellinelle, true! A lot of times we really don't appreciate what we've got untill it's gone.

    Graham, I know what you mean too! That's why I have this rule about summer flings and travel romances - I don't keep in touch lol

  10. Vrey well-written! Also, missing someone makes you realize or reminds you how much you love them. That is another thing to be thankful for.

  11. This one really made me think.. so true though. I find the people I miss the most are the ones I see everyday, but when they're gone for just a brief period... the longer someone's gone the more time I have to get used to it I guess.

  12. Good point. It reminds me of the saying that says "don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." I struggle with that one. But you are right. Having memories of special times with special people is, indeed, something about which to be thankful :)

    Elle, interesting how this same thing works slightly different for different people, eh?

    Cynthia, thank you! The saying is very true.

  15. jeune_premier, that's a bit too perfect to be ever true I guess lol It's okay to miss someone sometimes, but always better when you know they'll see them soon, of course :)

  16. You could look at it this way as well, absence makes the heart grow fonder.I feel that way about a certain person who came into my life 2 years after my husband died I think I always will.

  17. Becky, sometimes it's true, but I realize that sometimes it work the other way around too - "out of sight, out of mind". I guess it really does depend on how you deal with it and what you expect from it, if anything.

  18. what a nice project, from now on you will remind me of small things to be thankful!... and to start I want to say that I'm thankful not only for the people I miss but for the people I will never see again, and for them I mean those strangers who at some point or an other were nice to you and really touched you.
    the first person that came to my mind was a police man I met briefly at a concert (he was there with a group to keep things in order), the thing is that my wallet fell out of my pocket and he ran to me with it (nothing was missing), he had a huge smile and bright eyes and said "I think this is yours"... it may be corny but I wish him the best.
