The moments that take your breath away


“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away.”

I love this quote.

I’m not sure whether it’s a John Ellison original or not, but it’s one which John, the founder of the charity Climbers Against Cancer, had on his website and it always hits home whenever I read it.

The moments that take your breath away…..

It will mean something different to each and every one of us.

For me, it can be a view from the top of a mountain.

A moment of connection with family or friends.

A kind gesture from a stranger.

A smile from a child.

Spending time in the magical wonder of mother nature.

….and that’s just for starters.
