I've started this new little thing... a thing where each and everyday I say one thing I am #grateful for first thing in the morning to set the precedence for my day. As most of you know I went through a bit of a rough spell last week but that's last week and this week I feel like me again. It's a new chapter in my life book and I'm planning to make it a good one. Empowerment and positive vibes are on my agenda and that means for myself and those around me. I'm trying new self help approaches and taking a more holistic approach to my health. Medication just isn't my thing so I'm trying #essentialoils from #doterra . Between my self-help books and personal development, daily workouts, nutrition and these new essential oils I hope and plan to be on full control of my mental and physical health.
My goal is to become the best version of me. I want to love the skin I am in, accept what I cannot change and embrace what I can, be positive and destroy the negative. I want to move mountains (hypothetically, of course) and make a difference. I want to speak up about the things everyone else is scared to and I want to challenge myself in all ways to not give up.
So today, for the second time, I am grateful for the life I have been given, for those i get to share it with, for the most loving partner in Life, for pressing play, and for the love my fur babies give me when I come home. I am grateful for the friends I have, for the never-ending love from my family and for every smile that I put on another's face. 💟
Today I met this legend! What a beautiful boy, and what an honour! Precedence was my favourite racehorse and I'm so happy to see him living such a happy and exciting life now as a show horse. 🐴 The champ ran in 4 Melbourne Cups! Plus 5 Moonee Valley Cups for 2 wins, and heaps of other top races. 69 starts for 10-7-3 and total prize money nearly $2m. I love this boy so much and it was so friggin awesome to see him today. In fact it was literally the only reason I went to the show this year! 💙
#Why#Advocacy is #Central to #ReformJudaism
RABBI MARLA FELDMAN
#SocialJustice is an #essential component of Reform Judaism. To be a Reform Jew is to hear the #voice of the prophets in our head; to be engaged in the #ongoing work of tikkun olam; to strive to improve the world in which we #live ; to be God’s partners in standing up for the #voiceless and #fixing what is #broken in our society.
Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president emeritus of the Union for Reform Judaism, explained: "Reform Jews are #committed to social justice. Even as Reform Jews #embrace#ritual , #prayer , and #ceremony more than ever, we continue to see social justice as the #jewel in the Reform Jewish crown. Like the prophets, we #neverForget that God is concerned about the everyday and that the #blightsofsociety take #precedence over the mysteries of heaven.” Our #passion for social justice is reflected in the #ancient words of our prophets and sages and in the declarations of our Reform Jewish leaders throughout our history. The ancient command “Tzedek, tzedek tirdof!” or “Justice, justice shall you pursue!” (Deuteronomy 16:20) has led the charge in a long and proud tradition of #politicalActivism by Reform Jewish.
