Aseret Yemei Teshuva

We only have 10 days...(now even less!) to try to make ourselves into deserving people! If you think about it, these days are kinda scary. All the things we take upon ourselves are how we are really supposed to be all year. So, if I try to stop myself from saying Lashon Hora during this time, (which is a totally stereotypical example, but so common.) I feel, "Why am I not doing this all the time? Why is it even okay for me to vent then? Why do I allow myself to do that?" Or if I won't listen to some music, I wonder why it's okay all year around. And maybe it isn't. And why do I let myself be such a slave to my desires? And we all think about how bad we are the rest of the year.

Somehow, shortly after Yom Kippur most of us end up where we were before. Hopefully some Kaballot stick, but the days aren't as calculating anymore. At this time of year, I shudder to think of how many days went by that I didn't work on myself. I didn't expect more from myself. I didn't progress. If things were how they are described in High School and Seminary, I'd be a Tzadeket by now! We always learn that every day is a chance to grow. More than a chance. An obligation.

When people say to live every day like your last, if we all did, it would probably be a perfect world! I wouldn't be glued to, "My Fair Brady," people wouldn't be trading in last year's Lexus, and everyone would be davening and serving Hashem all day. I know that's a dream world. It's unrealistic. It's too scary to try to imagine on a practical level, because that will really expose massive ills of society. And of course, ME.

As this will probably be my last post before Yom Kippur, I'd like to wish ALL my readers a Gemar Chatima Tova, (remember not to wish anyone a "Gemar Tov" unless you want them to leave this world soon C"V) and ask forgiveness from anyone I have offended, although I don't doubt it will happen again. Sorry, it's the truth.

Technically, I'd go around my neighborhood and ask forgiveness from all the Luxury vehicles (past 2002-why that's the cutoff date? I don't know. Don't argue, it's stupid. You can make your own) drivers, but I'd be 21 by the time I got around the corner.

Actually, they do get you to stretch it out to all year. The AYT are all serious, but the real sealing takes place on Hoshanah Rabbah. But.... things can change from now until Chanukah! And don't forget that Purim is like Yom Kipper, and that Pesach brings on Sefirah, where we must improve ourselves. After Shavuos we have the three weeks, and Elul follows shortly.

Hey-anonymous-sounds like you have read my post from last September! Good going!

I think, lulei demistafina, everyone needs to pick one area where he or she is deficient and make that their project for 5766.

Hey, I just realized: We're living in the Sixties! 8D

Hey fellow commentors, Michelle's birthday's coming up this Saturday! What should we do for the occasion (and no, blowing up every Acura MDX and other luxury SUV in Flatbush would probably be inappropriate right after Yom Kippur)?

--- Michelle, i wish you a gmar chasima tova, and may you blog more often this year! Once a week won't cut it :) The Jewish blogosphere needs more level-headed people out there like you!

It's still not Hoshana Raba yet, so Gmar Chasima Tova to y'all. I hope you city folk have room for Sukkos somewhere.

Unfortunately, it seems like all the Mehudar Esrogim and Lulavim didn't make it out of New York this year. I got nothing.

When we finally glance at the concise explaination the phrase like, with relation to an enchanting partnership along with one other, although to be a emotion that is definitely engendered for those who have miltchmonkey the best partnership yourself as well - or simply for a a feeling of increased unity with the family or simply humanity , this develops into substantially more superior that each one everyone is looking for in your life is usually really like.
