Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away. All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage.

Good morning to you all! Last week was a pretty good one for me and I have been using these last few weeks of working part time to ponder over my life and think about what I love about it and what things I want to change. I watch a number of family daily vloggers on youtube and many clearly feel the pressure to create as much amazing creative content as possible by constantly having trips away and special days out that make their videos interesting and fun for their viewers as well as for them. As much as I think this must be a wonderful and exhilarating way to live I also feel that it must be exhausting to be jumping from one fantastic surprise to another without having time to appreciate the dull and mundane in between. I do feel that we have to experience bad years and tough times to enable us to really appreciate those moments that take our breath away. When we live like this it is then not always necessary for these special moments to actually be that unusual or incredible.
