Rabbi Aryeh Nivin gave his annual Pesach Drasha for women this week, and it lit me up like a firecracker. He suggested we select just one, tiny change (not a big, huge one) and implement it every single day, from now through Shavuos.
Well, I'm doing it. I chose to make a slight but distinct attitude adjustment. It involves seeing myself from a different perspective, one that another person might immediately have, but I habitually NEVER have about myself.
Until now! And I'm really doing it, because I made it fun. I built a little blog for myself, and posted over a hundred photos to remind me of my new mindset. It's working! I leave the blog tab open on my laptop as I'm working, and click on it whenever I need a boost back up and into my new mindset.
Funny thing... I'm really good at boosting my clients' mindset, but haven't applied my coaching skills to myself. DUH!
Thanks so much, Rabbi Nivin, for giving us such a simple, little Pesach blessing, for ourselves personally, and for women of Klal Israel! Here's a list that's true, in my experience, but I'd add one more word - JOY!!!
