Breathtaking: (adj) astonishing or awe-inspiring in quality
Always set it low so you can get high.
There is nothing greater, more spine-chilling and exciting than having your breath taken away. The only trouble is, we become easily jaded and start looking at breathtaking events as common.
In doing this, we remove the majority of the joy from our existence and demand that the Universe impress us–as the Universe stands by, waiting to be impressed.
Sitting in a parking lot, I watched a young boy about ten years old eyeball an old lady, who was pushing her cart. He paused, started to walk away, but then turned and offered his help.
I continued to view this glorious scene as he made it to her car, loaded her groceries into the hatchback, and when she offered him money, he refused. As he turned and started to walk away, overwhelmed by the glory of his own deed, he started skipping.
It was breathtaking.
- It was not the Grand Canyon.
- It was not Niagara Falls.
But it was in front of me, it was truly unusual, and it was a feast for my eyes, which are always trying to darken the view.
