I'm trying to express being shocked in a good way, but all I can find are negative phrases such as:
- "It hit me like a ton of bricks."
- "It hit me like a bucket of ice cold water."
I would like to know if there are some ways to say it in a positive way, as in being shocked in a good way. Thank you so much!
Edit: Pardon me, I should've added context before! I'm translating a sentence in Spanish, in which someone is saying they were shocked (they describe it as being hit suddenly) and very touched (therefore, it's in a positive light).
The answers supplied by Dan and J O S H are exactly what I needed, both "It took my breath away" and "It blew me away" work perfectly.
I'd still like to thank you kindly, all of you! I appreciate your help immensely, having found this forum feels like a blessing. However, I'm not certain as to how to proceed now, do I delete the question? Once more, thank you for all your help!
