Wake Up Call! – Captivated By….


When something takes your breath away enjoy every second of it!

I was out walking my dog Lucy this week at sunset. As we came around a corner the mountains in the distance had a burnt orange hue to them – I reached for my smartphone to capture the beauty of the moment. The picture was a poor reflection of the real thing.

I had to choose between trying to keep taking a photo or not.

My phone went back into my pocket and I stood there speechless, soaking in the breathtaking beauty of the ever-changing colors. I felt privileged and filled with gratitude. My awe was interrupted by Lucy trying to get my attention back on our walk!

As we resumed walking I thought about how life is lived and appreciated in the ordinary moments. I wonder what you or I will be present to when it grabs our attention or takes our breath away?


  • Be open and aware to the beauty around you
  • Be present to whatever takes your breath away

Notice how the delight and awe your experience in allowing yourself to be captivated changes your perceptions of the day.
