Life’s Not The Breath You Take…

18 Jan

It’s the moments that take your breath away.

I have woken up with this song stuck in my head every morning for a week now. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. I think its the universe trying to give me a big wake up call because clearly the little wake up calls haven’t worked. Its no coincidence that my mom gave me that exact phrase in a frame without even knowing how important the song was to me. Its no coincidence that I read an article about creating my own future the same day I got the framed picture. Its no coincidence that I got a letter with words of encouragement in the mail on the day I was feeling incredibly discouraged.

I want to do the universe justice. I want a life full of monents that take my breath away.

Things that are important:

My son telling me that he loves me to the moon and back and ALL THE WAY TO  NEW YORK CITY

My daughter singing along to the lullabyes that I sing to her that my own mom used to sing to me
