Yom Kippur Resolutions 5780/2019

Today, is Yom Kippur, a Jewish holiday, known as the day of atonement. It is the holiest day of the year, a time to reflect. It’s a time to make amends; apologize for our actions and promise to do better in the coming year.
Each year, at this time, I think to myself how the year was full of many experiences that taught me life lessons. At times things occurring didn’t make sense, but it’s all led me to be where I am right now.
I am making a conscious choice to let go of anything that does not serve me. Each of us are on a different life path. What is true for us today, may no longer be tomorrow. What is right for us, may not be for someone else. We are constantly evolving and changing and that’s a beautiful part of life.

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 5780...

  • Blog more often - I want to inspire others and create more content.

  • Read - I want to challenge myself to read at least one book a month. I love learning new things and delving deeper into topics that interest me.

  • Exercise more regularly - I seem to create great habits when it comes to exercise, but due to my life not having a consistent regimen, I end up not sticking with it.

  • To surround myself with people who bring out the best in me (and vice versa) and truly have my best interest at heart - One of my mantras is the quote, "Energy flows where attention goes." I’m human, so I’ll at times notice myself 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. I’ve also in the past year, learned who is in my life just for ME...and not for any other other motive.

  • 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. 

  • Take time for me - I’m a giver by nature. A nurturer. I feel my soul calling is to help people. The truth of the matter is, I’ll do it to my detriment. I’m still learning how to be there for others, and be there for myself just as much. A dear friend posed this question to me; “If you devoted even half the energy you give unto others to yourself, where would you be in your life?” It really got me thinking.
  • Travel to new places - Traveling brings me so much joy and is truly one of the loves of my life. 

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.
