Freak out

Nice cat, Rabbi! Thanks for the insight. Yes it's so important to clarify what OUR values are, what is really important to US, what we want to achieve in our time, what contribution we want to make. Sometimes we get paralysed thinking that we have to realize great and wondrous actions in order to have a meaningful life, but small acts of kindness go a long way toward giving us a sense of accomplishment and purpose. And perhaps what we view as a small thing is perceived by the recipient as a life-changing experience.

Sometimes we need to pause and reflect. Other people thoughts and opinions may have seeped in and they are not our thoughts. Someone else may have tried to tell you what the purpose of life was, and it's not your purpose. Follow your own heart, not someone else's.
