Hanukkah is bringing light into houses and hearts around the world. The light that we are celebrating is much more than just physical. The light is a beam we can direct towards the things we choose to see, and it’s in our hands to direct it towards the good things!
Hanukkah is a great opportunity to focus on the light and ponder over all the wonderful things that bring light into our lives. This year, I am thrilled to share with you something that I do with my family during this special holiday. Soon, when we are all gathered around a table filled with latkes and dreidels, we will sing songs with our loved ones and every candle we ignite, will be for us a light we choose to cast over an important thing in our lives, and share it with the people we hold dear:
First Candle: It is time to cast a light on our accomplishments.
Second Candle: It’s important to cast a light on the process, and not just the result.
Third Candle: We will remember to cast a light on someone we care about and yet haven’t connected with for a while.
Fourth Candle: We will try to ignite others with our enthusiasm.
Fifth Candle: We will cast a light on our opportunities to simply be and celebrate together.
Sixth Candle: We will make sure to put a light on the voices that others are sounding.
Seventh Candle: We will give a green light to things we’ve been holding back.
Eighth Candle: We will voice new ideas and thoughts and have them see light.
Wishing you all a happy and de-LIGHT-ful Hanukkah,
With gratitude and appreciation,
