People have the habit of taking things for granted.
My internet connection has been restored. The reason for the loss of connection was my virus software; I thought it was my ISP. No more visits to an internet cafe, for now.
People can only appreciate the value of something when they lose it. Often, we take things for granted, and only when it vanishes do we really feel the loss. An internet connection is important to me for many reasons, my business, this blog, research. It has been a pain in the bum these last few days without an internet connection.
To really appreciate something try to go without it for a period of time. If people take you for granted, see if you can be unavailable to them for a short period, and this may make them wiser to your value.
