Bad days, and why they are funny.

As days go, yesterday wasn’t horrible.  I got to get up at a normal hour and daven, get dressed like a human being, go to work, see some friends, talk to some others, found table legs for my table top, spoke to my sister, etc.  But in the midst of all of that, there were some moments where the stress seemed to overwhelm me, and at one point I cried and needed a hug. (Thanks Rivka #942648420!)

Some of the stress came from aliyah, but pretty much all of it was the kind of thing one COULD find in chutz la’aretz.  It’s just more likely here.  I was feeling SO MISERABLE for like four and a half seconds, before I burst out laughing.  How can I even have a moment of “poor me”?  I am one of the luckiest (ok, most fortunate!  No such thing as luck!) people on the entire planet.  I get to live in E.Y., I have great friends, I have a brain and I know what to do with it, Hashem has blessed me with good health and with building challenges, and I am just one of the luckiest fishsticks that ever was.

So bad days are pretty funny.

    It sounds childish, but when I feel down, I recall this cant-recall Tom Cruise movie wherein he wakes up from a hangover lying in the middle of a quiet Sunday street. He picks himself up and goes home limping without some angsty rock music in the background.

    I do so too (and not just everytime I wake up). But with chutzpah. No need for rock songs, though. Just my fave affirmation “Go the distance!” from the Michael Bolton song. The craziest is perhaps “Arx You A Kxy Pxrson?” Lol, check out my positive thinking article.

    I made Aliya from France 2 years ago.
    I had good times in Israel and less good times, but I know it was the right decision to come here.
    I will be happy to answer any questions from people who think of doing it and give my advise to them.
    Having relatives in Israel already is a big asset.
    In case someone wants to find new relatives and stay in touch with the old ones, I can recommend the Israeli website
    Famillion is a worldwide family project connecting people across the globe, transcending borders and languages. you simply build your family tree and the system matches it with related trees and that way you connect to new or old relatives and make your family tree grow. you can also upload pictures and exchange family stories.
    It s a great tool to find relatives and stay in touch with them.
    So, guys, let s get all connected!!!
    looking forward to receiving your comments…
    Stay in touch,
