Blogging is what I do.  I love writing and sharing my heart, my mind, and my soul.

If this is your first time reading this series of my blog, please take a moment and read the introduction Elul Journey: A New Year Is Emerging – 5775  http://t.co/Y6vmXdO6GJ

Today is 25 Elul or 5 days until 5775; it is a time to reflect and to choose ways in which I can best move towards the High Holy Days and the days that follow.  While it is not easy to navigate life’s journeys, I always get to decide how to approach my life.  In this moment, I am choosing to walk gently and embrace each step with openness.  As I say this, I also realize that this would be a good time for a reality check.

During each blog post of my Elul Journeys, I will share a poem, a saying, a teaching that has helped me navigate the world.  Let me know what you think!

Life can be hard.

Have you ever noticed how storms can appear scary and full of beauty at the same time?    Perhaps this vision is a metaphor for life.  Even when bad things happen, there can often be sparks of light that help make the tough stuff easier to navigate.  Here is a beautiful story, I feel compelled to share:

HOLY WOW MOMENT: Today I met a beautiful soul who was absolutely inspirational!!!  She walked into where I was on unsteady feet with a white cane, a stick that blind people use to help them navigate.  While she struggled ever so slightly, her energy was full of light, so I consciously found a way to connect with her.  We kibitzed (joked) for a moment before she shared her story.

Judy was a visual artist before a medication took her sight totally away; after 6 months, she recovered a tiny bit, she sees color & shadows with her limited vision AND she has found that she is even happier with her new art form.

We can all learn from Judy; I know I did.

May we each find the light that often engulfs us during the storms of life.

With blessings & light,
Chava
