A New Beginning

       Rosh hashana and Yom Kippur just passed by within a blink of an eye. The year before we did things to help us get closer to G-d and did things that pushed us away from G-d. G-d gave us another year to live, another year to show ourselves that we really want a relationship with our father, our king. If Gd sees potential in us to become great then why do we lose faith in ourselves and just give up? In order for each and every one of us to utilize our fullest potential we need to ask ourselves two very important questions. What can I offer the Jewish nation/ world that no one else can? What makes me special that G-d gave me another chance to show myself and Him that there is a good reason I am still here? The last day of sukkot which is Hoshana Raba are fate is sealed so before it's sealed let us all think of two things we want to improve on this year to prove to ourselves and G-d that there was a good reason that He kept us for another year.

Write down five positive traits about yourself that have to do with Judaism:

Examples: keep Shabbat, kosher ..

Write down five negative traits about yourself that have to so with Judaism:

Examples: don't keep Shabbat, kosher

Last step, take two things out of the five negative traits that you want to improve on this month/year in order to connect yourself closer to Hashem.
