14/15 Tevet, 5773
Israel is recovering from the wintery onslaught that hit us last week. Here's a look at how I'm managing - with the copy & paste of a message I'd E-mailed to friends earlier today:
UPDATE: according to the J'lm website, buses within the city started at 8AM, lite rail at 5:30AM.
buses INTO the city began at 6AM
buses OUT of the city began at 7AM
some schools are starting at 10AM - if you can figure out how to safely get each child to a different place at the same time.
Good luck to everyone. Err on the side of caution to stay safe.
Facing obstacles and dealing with them can be very empowering, success or no success.
Why? Because you get to know, in your very gut, that you did your best instead of caving in. And sometimes the situation you face can be turned into a humorous or inspirational perspective to reflect upon.
That builds self esteem, a sense of satisfaction no matter the outcome.
Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity. Face Your Future with Optimism.
Look for the humor in life.
Faith, family and work can help. So can a willingness to be happier than you have been.
