Yom Kippur Resolutions 5779/2018

Today, is Yom Kippur, a Jewish holiday, which is known as the day of atonement. It is the holiest day of the year, a time to reflect. For me, it's about much more than just apologizing for our actions and promising to do our best to change our ways, but it's a spiritual cleansing. 
I've had quite the year...and there is nothing I would change from it, because it's all led me to exactly where I am right now. Sure, there were some messy moments, but I took something from each interaction and experience. 
I am choosing to let go of what does not serve me any longer. We are all on different life paths. What holds true for us today, may no longer tomorrow. What is right for us, may not be for someone else. We are constantly evolving and that is OK. As I move forward and into this new year, I wrote a list of resolutions; goals for the person I'd like to become. 



Here are some of my resolutions for the year 5779...


  • Speak up - For so long, I thought it was better to keep quiet. If someone upset me, it was better to let it be...I wanted to avoid conflict. This year I have spoken my truth and used my voice. It's empowering. It also has made others close to me uncomfortable, and that has been hard, but I know that everyone in our life is there to serve a purpose. Sometimes, when we start vibrating at a higher frequency, it no longer matches the energy of people around us. It's up to us to recognize that and let go. And in some instances people just fade away.
  • To surround myself with people who bring out the best in me (and vice versa) - One of my mantras is the quote, "Energy flows where attention goes." I've noticed myself at times falling into patterns of gossip, depending on the people around me. I really want to be more conscious of the energy in my space and what I am focusing on. 
  • Connect more to G-d and source - I feel so much more balanced when I listen to my intuition and connect to both my higher self and my faith. 
  • Tap into my creative side - I'm excited to be delving back into studying fashion. And want to take some drawing classes. 
  • Blog more frequently - I want to create more content. I have a lot of ideas and feel inspired to post on a variety of topics.

In the coming year, I strive to be the best I can be, love myself unconditionally, and always count my blessings...I have so much to be grateful for.


I pray for peace, understanding and lots of love for one another, as we move forward...

Gmar Chatimah Tova! May you be inscribed in the book of life. ❤

We have 105 days left until 2019 - What is something you'd like to accomplish?
