What is your role? #BlogElul

Today's Jewels of Elul question is: "If you had to say what your role was in this world what would you say?"

My response comes so quickly...to make the world a better place than it is now.

Oh, if only it were that easy.

If only I could know, really know, that I'm doing it. That somehow I'm having an impact, making a difference.

Each day I wonder. Each day I ask myself...did I really make a difference today?

But I think the answer is much bigger than just today, or tomorrow, or the next day.

I think the answers will come in the big picture.

What is my role?

To keep plugging away at this big task of life...hoping, praying, wishing, dreaming and ultimately knowing that the difference really is being made.

Here in Elul, it's time to rethink and recast each moment of each day of the previous year. Cataloging each action and questioning it, considering how I can do better in the coming year. Did I make enough of a difference this year? How can I make a great impact next year?

So...what do you see as your role in the world? Pop over to jewelsofelul.com to answer, or leave a comment here.

First, let me say that the baby pictures are almost too cute! Second, and more on topic to Elul... your post made me think of the Pirket Avot (?)-- You musn't complete the work but nor are you free to abandon it. How much then, can we know to be enough? Where do we draw the line? Food for thought, I guess...

Keep the posts and baby pics coming!
