There is often an area of our lives where we have been sitting on the fence, e.g., something we are doing we know is wrong and want to stop, a mitzvah observance we want to strengthen or begin, an act of kindness we are contemplating, Torah study we are considering, or an estranged relationship we want to repair. Other examples include making a career shift, moving to Israel, becoming marriage minded or breaking a bad habit. But perhaps we are ambivalent and the status quo continues.
Recently, there have been a number of tragic deaths of young people due to terror attacks, illnesses or accidents. Use these tragedies as a wakeup call, a reminder that no one knows which day will be their last. Now is the time to get off the fence and take action. To make the most of each day, giving priority to what is truly important.
Often, people’s deepest regrets are not what they did, but what they never even tried. Take the first step of a worthwhile goal and make the most of the strength God gives you.
Have a great week,
