Today will be my last post until Sunday. Tomorrow begins Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which leads into the Sabbath. I will be unplugging from sundown tomorrow until Saturday night. It will also end my streak of blogging for 67 straight days.
So I find it interesting that as this streak comes to a temporary end ( I will continue to blog on Sunday) it also marks the beginning of the Jewish Year and a time for reflection as well as hope for the new year.
Perhaps there is a deeper message in this coincidence. Perhaps as we go through life certain things end; relationships, friendships, jobs, and sometimes lives. Life is also full of new beginnings; new friendships, relationships, new careers, and new lives.
So I will never be able to blog for 100 days straight but that's OK. And during this past year certain things in my life did come to and end. Some of those things were good and some not so good, but I have had a lot of great beginnings.
- Started blogging more
- Started a Blog challenge
- Increased my PLN in a more meaningful way
- Made new friends for life
- Worked on kicking off my consulting business
- Created a newsletter as part of my consulting business
- Spent more quality time with my family
I have a lot to thankful for as we end this year. My family is healthy, my daughters have turned into some amazing young women whom I am so proud of, and I have good friends who are hoping and praying I succeed.
I definitely still have a lot to pray for; continued health, a job, peace and security in Israel and throughout the world.
So as we face endings and new beginnings, I pray that the new year brings health peace and prosperity to all.
Wishing everyone a Shana Tova
A Happy and Healthy New Year
