Words To Live By

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.  -Maya Angelou

    I have heard this quote several times and every time it gets me. How many moments have you had that take your breath away? Are they so numerous that you could not possibly count them? Are they so few that it tugs your heart a little too much to think about it? In my work as a critical care Respiratory Therapist I see so many deaths but each one just spurs me on to find more out of my life. To be more, go for more, want MORE! We can easily create moments that make us gasp and wonder at the world. Choose today to open your eyes and really SEE the people and the things around you.

    • I absolutely love this quote. Too often I let the stress of every day life get to me. I take a step back and realize that I am very fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom. To be able to watch my kids grow up right before my eyes. To be able to go outside and catch some sun or dance around the living room anytime we please. How we choose to spend our time is what is important. Thank you so much for your thoughts and for re-blogging.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
