Don't be puttin' band aids on the 'symptom'

It's a funny thing, isn't it? 
The things at our disposal,
we walk on by.
Hardly noticing,
seldom appreciating.

But have it break down for 1 day?
And suddenly it's got your attention.

Whether it's something like my toilet which just broke down and is
suddenly out of commission -
or maybe for you it could be a relationship that broke down,
and now suddenly you take notice.

You start investigating it a little closer...
get 2nd opinions.
Do your own research.
Try and evcaluate the source of the leak.

Was it a slow leak that didn't set off the alarm in your head because it was subtle?

Was it under the carpet so it was carefully covered up, not a sign of mold in sight?

Well, over time the erosion tends to come to the surface and eventually  a major waterline may burst wide open flooding different rooms in your life.

Patch up the leak -
deal with it 911!
But then don't forget to go back and find the root of the problem.
Don't just put a band aid on the 'symptom'...
fix the 'source'.
