There is only one success--to be able to spend your life in your own way.-Christopher Morley
Posted September 18, 2009
Every Rosh Hashana, there's a feeling of crispness in the air. Maybe it's the beginning of Fall, or maybe it's a general sense of freshness. A renewal of sorts.
There is a whisper of the sound of opportunity unfolding in the coming year. It's a time of hope and optimism.
It's a chance to look around us and see the positive. Even though not every single thing is 100% the way we may prefer, we all have many positive aspects to our lives. In the new year, children will laugh and play, friends and family will stand by us, and many, many things will turn out the way we hope.
Some people make personal resolutions on January first, but why not do so on Rosh Hashana? This year, my resolution is to focus even more on the positive and use that focus to put everything in perspective. On the balance, things are very good, and it's my resolution never to forget that.
Wishing everyone a happy new year, with health, happiness, and success.
Happy New Year!
May the year 5770 exceed our expectations.
