Much has happened in these past few weeks. I’ve reconciled with the pain from perceived threats and have made peace with my faith. It feels good to go home to those who have loved you all along, even if they misunderstood you for awhile. I’ve continued to find outlets in healthy eating and meditation/prayer. I finally fulfilled a lifelong goal of getting a meaningful tattoo. I’m taking on new leadership roles: I am a head cheerleading coach, president of my school district’s education association, and am developing a Jewish preschool curriculum for the small population of preschool students in our congregation. I will be taking a year to develop a Jewish children’s literature-rich environment filled with simple crafts, songs, and sensory ways to learn the Hebrew aleph bet. I’m excited for these new roles and new beginnings. I’ll continue to update everyone as I continue to implement positive changes that take my life in the right direction.
