Anyone have any ideas of what i can do tonight, i’m so bored on Summer nights (and it’s raining) 🙁 i feel so bad, i feel like i’m wasting tons of time-but i don’t know what to do :'(June 22, 2011 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #779751613loveParticipant
learn or listen to shiur, dont waste your time its precious 🙂June 23, 2011 12:21 am at 12:21 am #779752RABBAIMParticipant
You have spare time??? Can I buy some??
I have a friend.. young man. he was told he has 3-6 months to live…… want to sell him some time??
Chovos Halevavos at the end of Shhar Bitachon wants each of us to view life that way…….
Still have time??
If you don’t bargain with the Yetzer Tov, you will have sold out to the Yetzer Horah

Rabbaim: I understand the point you are trying to make and its a nice one, but please give brotherofurs concrete examples of what he can do right now.
Brotherofurs: I sometimes feel like that..OK here are some examples.
-Something that you wanted to do but never have a chance..
-Call up someone and get together with them.
-Do a Chessed or help a neighbor
-Go jogging (in the rain :)) or just go on the treadmill. Exercise makes you feel accomplished.
-Go to a Wedding if you feel like getting dressed and venturing into the rain..
-Or listen to some music and go to sleep early. So you are refreshed for tomorrow.
Whatever you do Enjoy! the night is almost over..June 23, 2011 2:25 am at 2:25 am #779754ZeesKiteParticipant

stickynote – the first thing before practicality is to develop an hashkafic perspective and guideline THEN the choices can be made if they fir into the guidelines. BUt if one never agrees to the premise, then they can just tell someone to chilllllllllllll.
HIE- if one chills here, what will happen to him after here?? Funny we should call it chilllllllllll, maybe we should help people visualize and awaken self by calling it buuuuuuurn!!!!June 23, 2011 3:17 am at 3:17 am #779758am yisrael chaiParticipant
There was a levaya this evening of a yingerman who passed away w/o realizing his life would be cut so short. He was the epitome of making use of each moment. Rabbaim was certainly not speaking hypothetically.
Studies show that when helping others, one becomes happier & feels productive & accomplished.
Might I suggest that you become a mentor for a child from a single parent home, visit a homebound individual, or call the gamach hotline to see where help is needed. I’ve heard that the gamach booklet needs to be updated & volunteers are needed to make calls to update the listings.
If you can, let us know what you choose.June 23, 2011 3:19 am at 3:19 am #779759Smile E. FaceMember
