Breathless

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away
Have you ever turned a corner or looked up or turned around and seen something so beautiful that you just stand there and go "Oh wow!"?
My "oh wow" moment is walking outside and looking up on a clear night. I never cease to be struck speechless at the beauty of the night sky, the splendour of the Milky Way winding its way through the velvety blackness above. It takes my breath away.It makes me feel small and insignificant. It makes me dream of what was and what could be...
Sometimes we miss the beauty around us because we have forgotten how to see it. Oh we look, but I am talking about seeing with your soul, your heart - not just your eyes. We should all experience the feeling of seeing something so beautiful that it almost makes you cry, fills your heart up with wonder, makes you feel that life is wonderful, the world is a better place just for having seen this wondrous thing....
So - open your eyes. See the beauty of our world. Let it fill your heart with joy.
