    Chodesh Elul! A HAPPY time in the calendar. A time we all clean ourselves of the spiritual grime & dirt accumulated throughout the year. We awaken our souls and mind to tune in to Kedusha. We beautify & adorn our Neshamos in preparation and anticipation of standing before HaShem on the day of Judgment. Whatever the outcome of His Judgement, the gift of Chodesh Elul and T’shuva is indeed priceless. ???? ??? ?’ ????? ??????. May HaShem see fit that I too return to Him fully.

    The hard job is maintaining this from after Simchas Torah until Chodesh Ellul the following year. But a nice Post.

    Thank you for that uplifting perspective. I usually don’t look forward to waking up early for a month, although I do like Selihot.

    ..Well we ALL did, sort of. All of us are somewhat cleaner, fresher, awaiting a healthy, fulfilling year of Avodas HaShem.

    “I didn’t indicate I was leaving”

    Your absence kind of indicated that…

    Why? It’s not like I really make a lot of noise around here, is it?

    Nice thread! Thanks LF for the link.

    You are right that Elul CAN be a happy time for the reasons you mentioned, however, some people get very serious and can’t even crack a smile starting from before 10 Tammuz going all the way to after Yom Kippur…

    Cheer up people, “we can do Tesuvah, we can repent from our ways…” and “Hashem is so kind to forgive you with Teshuva that comes from the heart…”

    The reason it’s sometimes difficult to accomplish something is because we put too much on our self. From what I learned from diff shiurim, we should just pick one thing to work on. Mr. Charley Harary mentioned that changing one small habit can help you achieve your goal. And he gave an example of a person that decided to go bike riding once a week, which inspired the person to eat healthier, which helped him lose weight. One small thing leads to another.

    Whether it’s saying Good Shabbos, or concentrating on a bracha, or remembering to not talk in shul, everything counts
