I keep looking, but I can’t find it …

lost_foundI can imagine that someone is always looking for something, whether it be your keys, your phone, a book, a piece of paper, etc.  It could be anything that someone is possibly looking for.  For arguments sake, I would go as low as 7 times out of 10 you can NEVER find that specific something that you are looking for.  In turn, because you can’t find it, your reactions vary depending on how important it is and why you are looking for it.  Sometimes we just give up and have that “whatever” attitude or sometimes we become  angry because whatever it is we are looking for is so important or sometimes we find ourselves feeling panicked because whatever it is we are looking for belongs to someone else.  So we look and look and look until we find our room, house, car, office or what have you turned upside down like a tornado just came flying through.  Low and behold, when you do find it, which is rare, a sigh of relief comes over you and you either laugh or cry.  And when you can’t find it, you can’t stop wondering where it was the last time you saw it.   

I can’t tell you how many times that has happen to me and ironically when I am not looking for this specific item, I end up finding it unexpectedly.   So do we keep looking until we are blue in the face or stop looking for that specific thing we lost because statistics tells us we will find it when we are not looking?  This entire thing only came about because of my sister, she was going on vacation and she couldn’t find her camera.  Almost two weeks later, I was helping her pack her things and ironically, she found it.  So thank you my wonderful sister for this inspiration of something to talk about, I love you.


How many times do you lose things and can’t find them?  Do you normally find that specific something when you are not looking for it?  Can’t wait to hear back from you all.
