The Surprising Secret To Becoming Your Best

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called “The Surprising Secret To Becoming Your Best.”

Even while we are each different and should become our best selves, we still all need to make sure we are driving towards good healthy goals.

There is no one-size-fits-all mold for us. Hashem has a destiny in mind for each of us, and we need to find out what that is and work to become it. As parents, we need to see our children for who they are and not who we may want them to be. Truly, it’s a blessing to be able to be ourselves! As long as we and they are doing good in the world and by our Creator, we are each and everyone on solid Jewish ground.

Hmm, Different Is Necessary

So in my more mature years, I’ve come to terms with some important life lessons. 

One of these is that it’s okay for us to be different; in fact, it’s necessary! 

We each have our own personality, experiences, and journey in life.

What works or is right for me in my life, may not work for you or be right in yours, and vice versa. 

Celebrate the differences, because we are all here to learn and grow.

Let us each follow his/her own path as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. 

Now that makes a lot more sense then everyone do it my way!  😉

Children (and Fruit) of G-d

Interesting quote I heard on diversity:

It might be apples and oranges, but it’s all fruit!

The way towards mutual respect, teamwork, brotherhood, and peace:

– Recognize that our similarities are much greater than our differences. 

And ultimately, we are all children (and fruit) of G-d. 😉
