I suspect that most everyone is busy busy busy with Passover preparations, since the first seder is in t-minus six days (insert heart palpitations here). That’s why I’m keeping this week’s post short.
Passover is referred to as the “Time of our Freedom,” which, in the most obvious sense, could mean freedom from bondage in Egypt. On a deeper level, it can also mean freeing ourselves from our own personal slavery. This time of year is especially conducive to freeing ourselves from whatever is enslaving us. Maybe it’s procrastination, maybe it’s anger, maybe it’s laziness. This is an ideal time of year to start kicking the habit. I had a friend once who took the opportunity to stop biting her nails, for instance.
What are you going to free yourself from?
