My annual post....
Thoughts, love & prayers to all of those who perished & were affected by 9/11. We will never forget you. Fifteen years ago my coworkers & I ran from the dust cloud consuming lower Manhattan. At first we were told we were being bombed. It was like getting hit on the head with a frying pan....I remember thinking, I don't want to die at a job I'm miserable at, I haven't become the person I always wanted to be....that was just as terrifying. We soon found out to our disbelief that the towers had fallen.
Many things came to mind for this post but the takeaway is this...live with absolutely no regrets. Say what you need to say, do what you need to do, tell the people you love how you feel about them, if you need to apologize or have a resentment drop your ego & make peace, live every day with an open heart & follow your dreams relentlessly. No matter how healthy, young & heck, even beautiful you might be, 9/11 is a horribly sobering reminder that you are never guaranteed another day on this planet. Cherish each one, spread the love & go to bed every night knowing that if tomorrow was your last day, you would enter the light in peace with no regrets.
I ran the 2011 NYC marathon in memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11 (wearing this shirt I designed), read more about it here.
