This is the day of Gevurah within Tiferet, discipline within balance. On this day, I am thinking about how my life feels more balanced and more splendid when I am able to maintain the self-discipline of doing the difficult things that make me feel good about myself. I think about how often I ask my children, "Are you doing what you're supposed to be doing?" and how much better I feel when I can answer that question positively myself.
On this 16th day of the Counting of the Omer, I make a commitment to make wise choices that lead to my own sense of having a balanced and satisfying life. I choose to focus on the pursuits that bring me closer to that sense of radiant connection to the divine.
May this be a day in which you find your own radiant center by making good choices and judgments over your life.
