Rosh Hashanah Resolutions

It’s that time of the year again: let’s make some Rosh Hashanah resolutions! We get a clean slate, so why not promise ourselves the world for this New Year. This is a time to ask for forgiveness from others and yourself. Forgive yourself for not fulfilling all of last year’s Rosh Hashanah resolutions. You have another chance to get it right!

For the most part, people usually make pretty superficial resolutions on January 1st: Lose 10 pounds, quit smoking, make more money. For Jews, Rosh Hashanah is a time for reflection, a time when our resolutions can be more spiritual and less material.

This year I am resolving to better myself spiritually by going to Israel. I don’t know how I will pay for it, what I’ll do there, or the exact date of when I’ll be going. However, I know I’m going to do it. For many singles, their spiritual resolution this Rosh Hashanah will be to find love.

If you’re single, you are most likely going to be making resolutions like “I will work out more so I can attract the opposite sex”, “I will get a promotion so I seem more appealing”, or “I will learn how to cook so a date will think I’m special”.

My greatest piece of advice for you: stop focusing on other people. Resolve to do something awesome for YOU to make yourself happy. Why? Because happy and confident people are more likely to attract attention from the opposite sex. You could be a very attractive person, but your lack of confidence could end up turning the opposite sex off. You don’t want to end up alone just because you didn’t work on yourself for your own sake before trying to be the best for someone else.

It is my strong belief that you cannot be the best possible match for someone unless you are the best possible YOU. So change the tone of your resolutions: “I will work out more so I can be healthier”, “ I will get a promotion so I can use the extra money to give to charity”, or “I will learn how to cook so I can welcome guests into my home for holidays”.

Shana Tovah!
