Rosh Hashanah was this week! (How is it already mid-September?!)
Rosh Hashanah is the time when people of the Jewish faith reflect, repent, and prepare to be more righteous in the new year. They get ready to make a fresh start.
Now, I’m not Jewish even though everyone in NYC thinks I am, but I do love this concept. In fact, I love it so much I try to do it every day.
Pretty much every night, I lay in bed and do a daily debrief. I remind myself that whatever I give my attention to gets bigger, so I attempt to recap in a positive way.
I run through all the things that happened, brushing aside what I didn’t like and dwelling in what I did - the funny conversation I had, the sweet card I got in the mail, how good it felt when I made the call that I had dreaded for days, the feeling of accomplishment after cleaning up and doing laundry, how delicious that chick pea and tomato salad tasted...
If I haven’t fallen asleep by then and go back to the parts of the day that I wasn’t too happy with, because I’m in such a grateful, good mood, it’s easier to look at them objectively and without emotion.
I remember that they’re not so significant in the grand scheme of things, the good outweighs the bad, and that I can start over tomorrow – and begin looking forward to it.
Stirring up those good juices is important because it brings more of that good stuff into our lives.
While having an official time to prepare and celebrate for the new year is awesome, just know that every day can be your personal new year if you want it to be.
You don’t have to be trapped or stuck. It’s your choice. You don’t have to wait to make a fresh start.
Maybe, in the next hour or so, you’ll find yourself doing something you don’t like. That’s okay. You don’t have to stay in that place. Just acknowledge it and make a decision to do better from that moment forward. No looking back. It’s that simple.
You don’t have time to dwell in negativity, because you’re meant to do great things and “bee” happy!
I repeat: You don’t have time to dwell in negativity, because you’re meant to do great things and “bee” happy!
You don’t have to go at it alone. That’s what coaches are for. They give you the support, skills, motivation, and inspiration to be the best player you can be in this game called life.
