Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away
January 31st - moments
Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. You must experience each one before you can appreciate it.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
It's so easy to get caught up in the everyday chores and routines of life that we often miss those glorious moments that take our breath away. We need to remember that the moments that take your breath away are life! We need to appreciate just breathing and life!
We need to relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family. Think about when you play the board game Monopoly. You buy railroads and place hotels on Park Place and Boardwalk. You pass GO and collect $200. Everyone has fun. Then the game ends, and all the hotels, all the colorful tokens, and all the funny money go back into the box. Likewise, life is short. We need to stop and ask ourselves, What really matters. We need to enjoy every moment and have a blast while we last.
Sometimes it's the same moments that take your breath away that breathe purpose and love back into your life.
How sweet it is!
