"All Beginnings are Difficult" (Bechilta / Rashi) Thanks, RCoopersmith

Dear Rabbi Coopersmith, thanks so much to your advice. I must think on it.

1) One idea that comes to me is to ask forgiveness, make amends, all the time.
I have a SORRY button, but I rarely use it. There are SORRY button APPS. (SORRY Aish video)

2) "All beginnings are difficult" Saying found in Rashi (Shemos 19.5)
I am thinking of hitting PAUSE before starting some efforts, and perhaps,
going outside, for a walk, to mark a new BEGINNING effort.

Thank you, again,
and I am SORRY for anything I did wrong with, etc. Harry

Thank you so much! Your video makes all the difference in the world. I thought there was something wrong with my connection. It all makes much more sense now.
