The Gentlemen’s Curb
It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. You could be anywhere else, but I am glad that you are here. If you aren’t familiar with us check out some of our past work.
If you proclaim your faith publicly, prepare to be attacked. It’s as if everyone is an expert in your life. All types of comments are heard “you shouldn’t be doing this,” “that’s not what the word says, Bro.” Super scholars and judgmental people show their faces when they feel you made an error. It’s annoying. So, many people decide to keep things to themselves.
As A Child
When I was a child, I used to dread Yom Kippur. (Yom Kippur is the day of atonement where we afflict our souls and fast to be be forgiven for our sins and transgressions.) I would make sure that I ate as much as possible because I knew that my parents wouldn’t let us eat for a day. “They are monsters,” I thought to myself. “What type of parents would deprive their children of food?”
Now as an adult, I realize the importance and impact of the day. Regardless of your faith, custom or creed, a fresh start is needed. Some people move to different cities, different parts of the world for a fresh start. A rebirth is as important as breathing.
This day is a rejuvenation. I am able to cease and consider how to progress. I am able to consider how I am going to attack. How I am able to move forward. The elimination of food helps me to eliminate waste not only in my body, but my mind and spirit as well. Honest assessments should be made within yourself especially on this day. Assessments where you hold yourself accountable. Eliminate blame, stop letting inept reasons and excuses restrict you.
Forgive. Forgive? Forgive!
Those that observe the day ask for forgiveness and repent for our errors. How can you want forgiveness to be given, but you can’t forgive others. You can’t receive energy that you don’t give!
Here are some things I plan to implement this year:
Three Steps For The Year:
1. Be Prepared To Give What You Want
You can’t receive anything in life if your hand is closed. Simple As That.
2. Learn To Forgive Yourself
You can’t move forward if you keep looking back.
3. Acknowledge your faults and rectify them. Work for better at all times, step by step.
Don’t focus on the end of the journey. Focus On the Steps On Your Journey.
