Wednesday begins the month of Elul, the month preceding the New Year. It means that change is calling us. It means that the tough question we have put off so long must now be addressed, if we wish to live authentic lives. Here is the question: what will you change in your life? What about your self should be improved? To be alive means to keep growing. Standing still is not an option. The only issue is if we change with mindfulness or with obliviousness.
