"Wherever you go
Wherever you are
You are a blessing"
Rabbi Janet Marder
I'm not feeling so much like a blessing today. I need to be out of the house in an hour. It's not even seven and my shoulders are doing pushups toward my ears. Pick two things I tell myself. How can you be a blessing if you're anxious? Next thing you know you'll be angry. Next thing you know you'll be having a shitty day. Take a deep breath. Pick two things to do today, and I strongly suggest the first thing on your list is to be a blessing. You figure out the other one.
Baruch ata adonai, thanks for this early morning pep talk. I feel calmer. Amen
