Rosh Hashanah Resolution: Good Things, More Often

elissa-and-auggie

To gear up for the High Holidays this year, we’re asking our writers and readers for their Rosh Hashanah Resolution. Here’s one from our writer Elissa Strauss.

Most years I sit back and consider all the things I can do better, you know, as the tradition goes. But this year I am thinking of trying to do good things, more often. Specifically, I would like to make a point of making sure I let the people who I love and admire know it more often. I know this isn’t traditional repentance, but I would like to think that by focusing on doing more good I am acknowledging all the time I spend on jealousy, judgement, and resentment.

Perhaps this is because I am so exhausted by the first year of parenting that I just don’t have the energy to go too deep. Or maybe, on a more positive note, it is because being a parent has made the world so much brighter and I want to make sure I am actively sharing that light.

Got your own resolutions? Tweet them @Kveller with the hashtag #RoshRes.
