Seek and Ye Shall Find

Don't we all end up finding something when we are looking for something else?

Other day Shekar was looking for something and he found my clip that I thought I has lost long time ago. I was planning to go out and get me another new one, but never got around to actually getting a new one. I was so overjoyed when Shekar showed me the clip. It is not one of those expensive one, but the regular Walgreens one.

That is when I realized this is what happens to most of us. When we don't see our dear ones around we assume we have lost them as friends. All we have to do is look harder and they will be right there. But, we do not want to look; we would rather go out and make new friends because it is easier to get something new than to seek something that is lost.

But seldom do we realize that what we seek is right in plain sight and find it is so much better than getting something brand new.

So true. Just yesterday I was thinking no news from any of my first company batchmates (we joined as a fresher group) and today I got a mail from one of the group!! He mailed the whole group saying "Where art thou?" :-D. Didn't even have to look :).

And letting go is very difficult for me, be it simple things or people... Maybe thats the way we are made and I'm glad that we are so :).

BTW me gold :).

Nothing can replace old friends. Friendship like relationships is cultivated over a period of time. So a new friend can never replace an old one immediately.

wow.. so true.. but most times unfortunately, i find it only after a replacement is already sought :(

It always happen, we just forget old friends , old neighbours and move onto something new. Dunno, why we behave kind-of similar to the nomadic people, probably because we are still a unicivilised person somewhere deep in our heart.

Or maybe we never value/cherish what we have and always look out for something better.
