Be The Change You’d Like To See

This is a very important time of the year for the Jewish people. It is the run up to the new year. Before we get there, we have to prepare ourselves mentally and cleanse our spirits and our relationships.

I have had a rough week – day to day I consciously try to not let others affect my moods and I practice techniques of deflection (almost like a shield) – this week one person in particular got my goat (and I’m not going to go into it here), which really pissed me off – as a result of the piss off, my mood degenerated into one where road rage and shouting at 3 Mobile were a great release on Friday.

I am following a Kabbalistic calendar for the month and it’s not mumbo-jumbo, it’s practical things that we can do to put the last year to bed and start afresh. It is a time of soul searching and even going so far as to ask your closest friends what they think of you, accepting their criticism and changing accordingly, then thanking them for their honesty. It’s all about seeing the good in people and pointing it out if you get the chance. It’s about appreciating what we have and what we’re grateful for. It’s about asking for forgiveness and making amends. It’s about giving to other people; giving them a chance to speak, making them feel appreciated, being kind, generous and tolerant.

It is also about not being so hard on yourself. It is quite a trying time!

For tomorrow it says “go out of your comfort zone by being extra patient and loving with every person you meet” – my family are off to the seaside tomorrow and I don’t intend on seeing a living soul if at all possible …

… so that one shouldn’t be too difficult.
