It's 4 PM. Do you know where your reflection is?
Posted on 09/21/2012 @ 01:54 PM
We, as an organization, have core values and structure (even an educational framework!), which we are constantly revisiting to find room for improvement and ways to grow. We also always strive to push ourselves professionally and personally. Yet how often do we take time just to reflect?
That is the goal for this Shabbat -- but for ourselves.
This coming Shabbat is known as Shabbat Shuvah, the Shabbat between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Shuvah is a reference to t’shuvah (returning, retracing our steps, coming home), the act we are challenged to engage in during the 10 days of repentance between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
These 10 days can be awesome and special. We are given 10 solid days of personal therapy to reflect upon ourselves and the past year – at no charge. This is the time to pause and think about YOU and your life’s framework. Where do you have room for improvement in your life? Where are places you have excelled this year and would like to continue to grow? What are your hopes and dreams for the year to come, and how can you make them happen?
How will you take your own personal framework, reflect, and rebuild it to be bigger and brighter in the year to come?
