Day of Atonement…2016

Shana tova to our Jewish friends! Those who celebrate the Jewish Holy Days are currently in what we call the Days of Awe. It’s a time for self-reflection, making amends and will culminate with a day of confession or atonement on Yom Kippur, next Wednesday. So, in my own efforts of self-reflection, I must confess that I over-indulge in some behaviors that are not good for me.  As I was about to write this post, it took me about 30 minutes of Facebook exploration to actually buckle down and get to writing.  Ok, I confess.  I am a Facebook addict.  I spend more time on it than I should. It keeps me from doing other things I should be doing that are more productive and overall better for me. I commit to working on this in the coming months and using Facebook for work purposes only during work hours – entertainment in my leisure time only!  What things do you want to work on in yourselves? You don’t have to be Jewish to be self-reflective and to improve as a person.

P.S. I eat too many potato chips, too! 🙂
Wishing you balance,
