Glass half full

I usually notice when problems occur and do not appreciate the normal positives of day to day life. It's easy to get excited about seeing a beautiful rainbow but not as easy when you wake up.

Yea, we tend to focus on negative. And then something happens. When things are nice again, we enjoy it more because we felt what it was like the other way. Lets not wait for a challenge to make us appreciate, we should appreciate now.

Lessons from a holocaust survivor

Just last night, in the last hour of Tisha B'Av (the fast which commemorates the destruction of the temple, the culmination of the 9 days), the Aish centre in my hometown showed a documentary of a trip to Poland for university students, led by a Holocaust survivor. His excitement in showing them his hometown and determination to go to back to the camps where he was interned was inspiring. He seemed like the happiest man in the world, despite having gone through hell and losing his entire family. Not to mention the fact that he fought in the 1948 War of Independence and spent 6 months in Jordanian captivity.
He kept saying how happy he was to have survived and be able to show others what he experienced.
There was one moment when he was standing in the baracks, next to the camera. As the tour guide with him was speaking to the group, he unrolled his shirtsleeve and waved his arm in front of the camera, so the viewers could see the number on it.
He now has a beautiful family of his own.
If he can see the sun on a cloudy day, than so can I!
