The Road of Life

Engaged life is wonderful. There is so much to enjoy and to be happy for. The entire day goes by with the thoughts of building a pleasant life with someone. Life is now not focused on me but on pouring big tubs of love on someone else. It takes effort, it takes drive and hard work. Life is no easy street. Instead of hurting only myself by not taking care my health or by being lazy I hurt someone else as well. I am working of having a pleasant counternace, and a positive perspective. Happiness is a state of mind and I am working to achieve the perfect state of mind. Human achievement is complete when the ideals of life become reality. I am empowered to choose my destiny.

The Journey to Happiness

Tonight my Rebbi is making an Oneg Shabbos/Vort to celebrate my engagement for all my friends who were not able to attend the one in LA. It is really nice and I am appreciative of him, and of all my friends who are so happy for me and eager to see me happy. I am one lucky guy. I thank Hashem day to day for the gift he has given me and the Menuchas Hanefesh that I don't need to constantly think and doubt if I will ever find someone who loves me for who I am, and, who has given me someone special to grow with and make this world a better place. Perserverance in doing good and acting with responsibility, purpose and reason is the most important, and by default, the most difficult thing to do. Sitting by the Gemarah and Shulchan Oruch, realizing I might never have this opportunity again to learn without headache and worry gives me the chills. I should be taking advantage of every spare moment I have to learn and soak up knowledge. The more I take college courses the more I realize how valuable Torah learning is to maintain my Jewish identity. They compliment each other. The more secular subjects I learn, the more I value and appreciate the wisdom found in the Torah. The more I learn and work at the lumdus in the gemarah, the easier it is for me to grasp the concepts in class. When I go to my Economics class and I hear difficult concepts, I can grasp it with in a few minutes. However when I hear shiur and I see how difficult the subject matter and how complex the issues are, and barly scratch the surface, I realize Torah is more than just a subject. It is a spiritual journey to the knowledge of purpose and happiness. It is hard and difficult but the light at the end of the tunnel shines bright. There is no doubt.

"Doctors say that laughter is good for the mind - and the body, producing those wonderful calming hormones, like serotonin, which we all need a lot of these days! So do yourself a favor and listen to this wonderful lady. Ayelet is the funniest, glatt kosher, comedienne I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. My sister and I practically fell off our chairs listening to her!" --- Miriam Adahan

Life continues...

And so, the first week of college has ended. My classes are more difficult than last semester, and the books costlier than I ever imagined, but the bright side is that I am engaged, so all the heartache doesn't seem so painful. Taruvos is getting more challenging and complex with abstract concepts that are difficult to remember and apply. I have more respect now for all the Rabbanim who are able to rattle off Shach, Taz, Mechaber and Rema. The weather in Ny is rainy, but B"h I am not complaining because it could be worse; it could be snowing. My perspective on life is much different now that I am engeaged. Instead of wondering if I will find a partner in life, I am now getting on with my life and looking on how to expand my responsibilites and become part of a community. The oportunities seem better when I have a partner to help me juggle through the difficulties in life.
