Elul

Today is the first day of the month of Elul. It is the beginning of a period of introspection in which we take stock of our strengths and weaknesses and focus our efforts on improving. We look to break bad habits and to create healthy new ones. To clarify our purpose in life. To go beyond ourselves and show increased love and caring for others. To recognize that we create our own barriers to happiness. To work on removing envy, unbridled desire and the quest for honor.

We all want to be better people, today begins a period of opportunity to make it a lasting reality.
