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 29 Elul or less than 1 day 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!

“If you ask me what I came into this world to do, I will tell you:
I came to live out loud.”
Quote by Emile Zola

Throughout life, I have learned that there are so many different ways to engage within life.  I have also learned that nothing moves forward without actively engaging in the holy work of making a difference for good.

While I choose to be transparent through my writing, others choose to do it through their voices, while still others may create visual masterpieces.  There are so many ways to make an impact on people and to inspire them too.

We don’t all have it in ourselves to be leaders, some of us will go through life doing working in our own little space; what a beautiful gift that people are doing what that can.  At the end of the day (metaphorically speaking), our actions do make a difference.  Every step we take has the ability to change the world, one action at a time.

As 5774 comes to a close, consider what it means to be more impactful within your life.  Silent people never move our world to a better place.

‘Live Out Loud!’

l’Shana Tova u’Metukah (Have a happy and sweet New Year),
With light & blessings,
Chava

(PS – In the coming months, I look forward to sharing some of the ways that I will be making a difference; I really want to do my part to make this world an even better place.)
