Our Unique Blessings
The months of Adar remind us that we are each sacred vessels formed and fashioned in our own particular way so as to bring forth our unique lights—our unique blessings.
This week we acknowledge our gifts and talents. We acknowledge the goodness we bring into the world because of who we are. For many of us this is a challenging exercise. For many of us it would be much easier to acknowledge our mistakes and shortcomings.
It is helpful to remember that we name our gifts and blessings not to puff up our ego. Naming our blessings gives us inner strength and courage. It helps us see who we are and what we have to offer. Valuing ourselves creates a firm foundation from which to act. Valuing ourselves helps us proceed with greater love and compassion and be of better service to ourselves and others.
