I will preface this post by letting you know that my thoughts come from my Blue Heart and Brain!
This Wednesday evening (September 20th), at sundown, begins the Jewish New Year celebration of Rosh Hashanah. Several years ago, I read an article written by Rabbi John L. Rosove in the Chicago Jewish News. The rabbi’s words resonated with me as I read his view about “L’shana Tovah,” which is the traditional greeting during the Jewish High Holidays. The literal translation for this Hebrew greeting is: “For a good new year.” In his article, the rabbi emphasized the importance of each individual bringing goodness into the world.
What a splendid idea to think about every day, not just during the 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
As we read the newspaper, watch TV, listen to the radio, or log onto websites and social media, we often are overwhelmed with the Bad news in our communities, our countries, and the world. Just imagine, if we all work on sharing our ideas and bringing more Goodness into the world; we all could help to achieve “Tikkun Olam,” which is a Hebrew phrase that means “repairing the world” (or “healing the world”) by sharing the responsibility to transform the world.
During this new year of 5778, I am going use all my Brain Colors to think about how I can make it a GOOD New Year, not just a Happy New Year.
Below are my thoughts about how each Brain Color can bring more GOODNESS into their lives and other people’s lives.
Yellow Brainers would want to bring more Goodness into the world by sharing their ideas about how to be more responsible and respectful of others.
Blue Brainers would want to bring more Goodness into the world by sharing their ideas with others to create more peace and harmony in everyone’s lives.
Green Brainer would want to bring more Goodness into the world by sharing their ideas with others to develop better problem-solving skills and tools.
Orange Brainers would want to bring more Goodness into the world by sharing ways others can feel comfortable and free to be who they are, instead of who others think they should be.
I hope you all will take a moment to stop and think about how your Brain Color personalities, attributes, and abilities can bringing more Goodness into your home, your community, and our world!
Best Wishes for GOOD New Year!
