Yesterday was the anniversary of 9/11 and we have recently had two major hurricanes come through.
All of these events are a stark reminder that tomorrow isn’t promised.
We (and our loved ones) aren’t guaranteed to be free from something bad happening.
We don’t control the weather.
We don’t control other people.
We can’t predict and control all the variables.
We are not in control of what happens around us.
We can only control our reaction.
Today, my hope for you is that you let these events spur you on to love more.
Reach out in love to family members and friends you haven’t seen in a while.
Be a little nicer to the waiter or waitress today at lunch.
Take the kids outside to do whatever it is they are begging you to do.
Hold on a little more tightly to that special someone in your life.
Make the most of the day.
You aren’t promised you’ll get another one.
Make it a great day.
