Three (3) times a day (upon waking, noon time, and upon going to sleep, or breakfast, lunch and dinner, or while walking), say the following words five (5) times, consecutively and slowly: [blue]THANK YOU, HASHEM[/blue]." Each time they are recited, think of something else you are thanking Hashem for.
It may be something:
your job, etc.;
or it may be something SPECIFIC--
your keeping up with Daf Yomi or other learning schedule
your son's success in school
your ability to walk and even run (well, at least when necessary!)
your old and new friends
your loyal clients/customers;
or it may be something RECENT--
your getting up this morning although you were so-so tired last night
any one of the 15 events described in Birchos HaShachar that we experience daily
the opportunity to answer 'Yehei Shmei Rabba'
how about having coffee and milk in the house
a warm coat on a cold day
something that happens reminding you that you are human
getting a compliment from someone
...and...hopefully even for having received this message!
You can start right now - slowly, please:
[blue]THANK YOU, HASHEM FOR: __________________ THANK YOU, HASHEM FOR: __________________ THANK YOU, HASHEM FOR: __________________ THANK YOU, HASHEM FOR: __________________ THANK YOU, HASHEM FOR: __________________[/blue]
