“This post is part of Jewels of Elul, which celebrates the Jewish tradition to dedicate the 29 days of the month of Elul to growth and discovery in preparation for the coming high holy days. This year the program is benefiting Beit T’shuvah, a residential addiction treatment center in Los Angeles. You can subscribe on Jewels of Elul to receive inspirational reflections from public figures each day of the month. You don’t have to be on the blog tour to write a blog post on “The Art of Beginning… Again”. We invite everyone to post this month (August 11th – September 8th) with Jewels of Elul to grow and learn.”
Ever looked to the sky and said Why me?
Ever heard that small voice come back and say Why not you?
We often wonder why things happen to us the way they happen to us. What did I do to deserve this? is usually the question asked. But did you ever wonder what DIDN’T you do to deserve this?
Some things happen to us because of what we have done, other things happen because of what we have not done.
Do not allow yourself to treat you like the victim. Take responsibility for your role in whatever happens to you.
Be an active participant in your quest for happy.
It is not ‘their’ job to bring you peace – that is up to you.
This is your news flash – Today is the first day of the rest of your life; your opportunity to begin again. Don’t waste it.
