There are moments in life that quite frankly, you don't quite know how to react to. A bad haircut. Do you pretend you like it? Failed a test. Feel defeated or work harder? Hearing your once-husband is engaged? Still don't have that one quite figured out yet.
There are moments in life that take your breath away, but not always in good ways, to say the least. There are beautiful moments that take your breath away, simply because the beauty is too much to take in. There are moments that knock the wind out of you, when physically and quite literally you can't breathe. Needless to say those moments aren't quite as good.
These moments that take your breath away, it's all just a part of the experience.
But my favorite part?
The moments that physically, painfully knock the wind out of you;
make those dear, precious, "take my breath away" moments
all that much sweeter.
