Been thinking lately
There is always room to grow
Have you ever done this before? writing all the good things, it could be even one, that happened to you today and put it down on paper and read it to yourself? if not, try it.
You see, it’s been a while since my last post and I’ve been itching to write and share my recent summer travels and inspirations with you, and talk about my work which i love and grateful for, but this time I’ve been doing some thinking even made new goals for the coming year.
The high holidays are approaching and Rosh Hashana is coming really soon. So naturally at this time of year, every year, it happens that I’m doing some thinking to “re-organize” my life and consider my future actions.
All I’m trying to say is that I’m grateful. But being grateful is more than just thanking g-d. Being grateful takes faith and a lot of hard work, task well worth its effort and one that lasts a life time.
This upcoming new year I intend to make some changes. Changes from within. It’s the only way to make them last and to value the new you. Concentrating on the quality of life which to me means everything, from the simplest task when I open my eyes in the morning to the moment when I close them at night, feeling grateful for another beautiful day to come.
The choices and aspects in life which dictate the way we live are priceless. To make the best of these choices we must use our skills wisely by paying attention to our loved ones, contribute to the community when opportunity rises, value the simplest most luxurious moments that life has to offer, the list can go on and on. There is so much to be grateful for.
It’s in our behavior and attitude to create this beautiful balance between what we need and what we want. Life is not a one way street. When we focus on the joys of life by simply being happy, trustworthy, respectful and caring of others and value them as much as we would like to be valued, everything else falls into place. Not because we deserve it, but simply because we earned it.
For those who celebrate Rosh Hashana and for those who don’t, I wish you a happy new you and life full of joy.
