Seize the Day

My mom said something during breakfast this morning that I found very poignant. She commented that it must be hard for 9/11 widows to think about how normal September 10, 2001 was for their families. I can only imagine.

There are many lessons that can be taken from 9/11 and the years after, on many different levels. We cannot live in fear. But to me, the most important personal lesson that can be taken from 9/11 is that every day is precious. Life is not the big moments, the job you have, or the money you make, but the little everyday moments and how you behave as a human being.

On that note and on the day before the 5th anniversary of 9/11:

“I love you”—say it early and say it often.
Pick your battles—is the issue you are fighting about today really so important in the big picture?
Savor the little things—chat with a friend, smile at the sight of your angelically sleeping pet, enjoy the smell of a crisp and sunny Sunday, laugh with a loved one.

Happy Sunday!
