I’d love you to add your reasons, or to post here. To do so please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s nearing 2 years. Since I promised to give life a go. In the past year we have posted 130 reasons so far. Thank you Tamara, Hadas, Ricky, Dan and Sharon for posting your reasons. My goal for the 19th of October 2019 is to have 250 reason posts. Meaning a reason every 3 days or so. I can’t do that on my own and would love your help getting there. If you are happy to post a reason on my blog- be it just the once, or be it however often you want – like (bi)monthly/(bi)weekly, please be in touch!
Tomorrow needs you. YOU are important. You are necessary.
The world’s been looking like a really dark place to me recently. I’ll share what I wrote this morning depicting the darkness at the end of this post. Yet somehow it’s not as dark at the moment.

It takes only a second to flash a smile
Yet it can make another’s life worthwhile!
It takes only a second to appreciate
That we steal another’s time being late!
It takes only a second to open our heart
Then real kindness we can impart!
It takes only a second to hate
But we all choose our own fate
It takes only a second to forgive
And it becomes so much easier to live …
It takes only a second for the future to become now
Yet all too often we miss it somehow?
It takes only a second to die
And we wont know why …
What can you do to take care of yourself today for – only a second?
So long as there’s life, there’s hope.
To those I have wronged – I ask forgiveness. Continue reading “Yom Kippur”

123 (I love that number!) Grounding exercises. I often spiral or find myself anywhere but the present. I’ve come across some random/cool exercises that could be useful.

Choosing to keep to for A, you may one day believe, B, it’s the Jewish New Year irrespective of whether Judaism is or isn’t true. Continue reading “LTM: Rosh Hashanah”
I’m not sure what to title this post. Nor am I sure that I’m doing the right thing to write this out. I dialogued with myself when there was too much unnamed going on that I couldn’t handle. I think I want to share, as I want to know I’m not alone, and I’m pretty damn proud of what I did here. I think the most amazing part – to me – was that it actually helped. A little.

Don’t quit. It’s way easier to give up than to continue trucking. To take another step. To continue trying. Trying new things, different things. Knowing that one day it will pass. That tomorrow is yet another day. I need the reminder today. Continue reading “One Hundred and Twenty: Don’t Quit (poem)”
