What are you living for?

One of our employees* was working across from the Twin Towers when the airplanes hit. Every year, she takes this day as a day of reflection on her life. What does she really want? What is she living for? What does it mean?

Because it can all be gone in an instant... senselessly, suddenly.

She lost friends and colleagues in that attack. And why? None of those people had anything to do with the cause that the terrorists were rallying against. They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. People who were late to work, or who had a doctor appointment, or who spent a few extra minutes chatting with someone at the coffee place down the street were spared, but people who showed up to work right on time were murdered.

It makes no sense.

It's enough to make a person question their time here on earth... their relationships, their careers, and the people they choose to keep around them. Is this fun? Is this worthwhile? Is this something I'd be ok dying while doing?

Or would my last thoughts be regret for a life not fully lived?

There's so much to think about today, in terms of the lives of those lost, in terms of our relationships with others who share this hurling space-rock, and in terms of the randomness of life.

Today, I encourage you to take this moment to reflect on whether you're living a life you'd celebrate.

I sure hope you are. And if you're not, we want to support you in that journey. Not just as a soap company, but as friends. Please do let us know what we can do to help, and we will celebrate that life with you.
