I would like to think that I am changing from year to year. I would like to think that I am changing for the better. ¬†I am a bit more wise, a bit more patient, a bit more kind and a bit more generous.
Then something happens. ¬†A dish breaks, traffic jams, or something just doesn’t go my way. ¬†I lose my temper. ¬†I’m not that patient and I might say something hurtful.
I realize I want to change and be better. ¬†I apologize. ¬†Try again.
So maybe I have changed. ¬†My awareness has changed. ¬†I don’t react EVERY time. ¬†I know when I’m wrong. ¬†I’m a work in progress. ¬†(Hopefully making progress).
I’m not sure which Rabbi said that it is easier to split the Sea of Reeds than it is to change a single character trait for the better (I think it was Rabbi Salanter who developed the Mussar movement).
