I feel like any way I look at any of the prompts/themes for this week, it will just be about friends and people I love. TBT to some pretty awesome people.
Blessings: people I love and who love me
Here are some friends bloopers, because “strength” and “bonding” overlap in my mind in the “friends” area. Also on that note, see below for some all time fave friends pics of my own.
Blessing: friends, laughter
A pretty good org, check it out: makeitok.org
Blessings: Helping other people
Unrelatedly, here’s a peaceful pic of me in a happy beautiful place from a trip with lovely people.
After a long weekend of Israeli dance and festival preparation and dancing, this will be a short post:
Day 32 (4 weeks and 4 days) : Hod in Hod, Glory in Glory
Surrounded by friends, this shabbat day of the Omer was truly Glorious
Day 33 (4 weeks and 5 days) : Yesod in Hod, Connection in Glory
Israeli dance connects people all around the world and is a community like no other (that I am proud to be a part of and may be a cult?)
Any way, happy Lag B’Omer, happy day of festival, here’s another pic #israelidancefriends #israelidancefam #israelidancecult
Blessing: Israeli dance!
I couldn’t “pre-count” the omer, so today’s post is brought to you by chag- overload. The feeling you get when you’ve had more chag/shabbat days than not and you don’t know what day of the week it is anymore.
Day 6: Yesod in Chesed, Bonding/Connection in Loving-kindness
For today, just thinking about a really great song with and even greater message.
Blessing: friends on chag to keep me sane (and not as stir crazy), good music, rent, time
Day 7: Malchut in Chesed, Leadership in Loving-kindness
On the eighth day we say Yizkor. ever since I heard that about these different topics for each day of the Omer, it struck me as a little difficult to find the connection to “leadership and lovingkindness” on a day that turns out to be pretty somber (for me and others) because of Yizkor. Because of that, I used the 7th day of the Omer to remember “ways to show leadership” and “ways to show/do acts of lovingkindness” in honor of those who we say Yizkor for. Doesn’t make the day any less sad, but it’s like a fidget- gave me something to do and think about. 🙂
Blessing: memories, dugmaot
Day 8 (one week and one day) : Chesed in Gevurah, Loving-kindness in Discipline
The week of discipline falls right after we no longer have to eat matzah… so happy chametz everyone. Don’t forget to love it. See what I did there? Well if you want a real “lovingkindness in discipline” connection, I’d say that studying or practicing or learning something just for the love of it fits in here. For that, I’d say that I am #blessed to be #obsessed with Israeli dance. That fits, right? :p
Blessing: #IsraeliDanceFam, Israeli dance, #mustbemavrik, #cult #onlyalittle
