For my Hebrew speaking friends, this is an appropriate sentiment for today:
For those of you who aren't, here's the gist. This Rabbi Levi was called and requested to provide comfort to the parents of a fallen soldier. He was at a loss. He knew there was no comfort.
And he addressed the day. It's not for the families of the fallen. They live with this every day. It's for the rest of us.
Rabbi Levi saw this, admitted to the parents there were no words of comfort, but there was this:
Our obligation as the survivors is to live lives that honor the sacrifice that those who came before, who died for us, made.
The implied invitation of the Rabbi, and my express one, is to live such lives.
May no life that was given have been given in vain. May it be God's will that our commanders, politicians and countries protect those who protect us as they put their lives at risk for us.
May we find it in ourselves to live lives that honor those who came before, and then actually go out and live them.
Here's the secret in a few short minutes. The Secret is the Law of Attraction.
Here is Jack Canfield's summary at 44:00 minutes in.
When You Have Inspired Thought,
You Have to Trust it,
And You Have to Act on it.
My husband and I were breaking up then came the COVID-19 lockdown. We decided to try again. What can help us now? We've been together 10 years and communication is broken.
So it's time to clean up your communications, make a commitment to start over with a commitment to being open and honest.
A lot of people are stuck at home, or spending more time there than they are accustomed to. I'm guessing this might be leading to some stress in personal relations.
All of a sudden, we haven't got an office or a job to disappear to, or a gym to blow off some steam. And this might be a cause of stress, but it could also be presenting an opportunity, if we're sharp enough to notice, to pivot as an Entrepreneur might say.
These are my notes from Jim Rohn's best year ever. I figured I'd share for two reasons: (1) it's good to review for myself, and (2) maybe it'll inspire you to move your life in the right direction at this difficult time.
