The Jewish High HolyDays are coming – and that means it’s time for some honest introspection about where I’m at and what I’ve come to in the past year. Time for some teshuva, folks. There is no need for me to blog my vidui (confessions), but I figured it might help some others if I do this out loud.
It has been a great year, and also the hardest year of my life so far. I have worked very, very hard in my business.
- For the times when I ran the computer as a way to escape life’s everyday bumps and challenges – Chatati
- For the times when I was spending time with my kids but really I was thinking about my business – Chatati
- For the times I obsessively checked my traffic and earning stats 1,000 times rather than tackling whatever I was avoiding – Chatati
- For the times when I stayed up way too late caught in the Net and flitting from one thing to the next as my brain got number and number – Chatati
- For the times when I worked on business projects that were “not yet profitable” when I could have done paid projects and earned money my family needed – Chatati
- For the times I rushed through my morning brachos (or skipped them) because I was so eager to check my email – Chatati
- For the times I failed to enjoy the little things, like making challah or bathing my kids, because I was distracted by my business – Chatati
- For the times I was “too busy working” to call my parents or grandmothers – Chatati
