I stumbled across this quote yesterday while browsing through Chapters. For some reason, it really struck a chord with me – probably because my life has been so stressful of late.
To me, it’s a reminder to slow down and take the time to really appreciate what’s going on around us. It’s not enough just to “get through” life. In order for it all to really mean something, we have to take the time to be introspective and learn the lessons life continuously presents us with. We need to be there for our family and friends and regularly show them that they matter to us. And we need to find enjoyment in most of what we do – after all, if we’re not having fun, why are we doing it?
I want more moments that take my breath away.
