[Wednesday, November 1st - Yud Cheshvan]
So I am leaving Philadelphia.
My roommate got engaged and a spiral of emotions and events have led to my decision to leave Philadelphia and journey forth.
Over the past two months, behind the scenes of this blog, much has been going on.
A lot has changed within, in terms of knowing my capabilities, planning my future, and getting closer to my real Shlichus, my true mission in life.
G-d has been very close throughout this decision. So many signs and opportunities and people made it clear to me exactly where I need to be. I feel unbelievably blessed.
Tonight, I opened to a letter from the Rebbe that said, "When a Jew resolves to do good, the One Above immediately opens for him additional channels if necessary, to accomplish it even better than expected."
I am ready.
Ending this chapter comes with much introspection, new resolutions, a fresh sort of faith, and a healthy dose of fear.
I make my move to Crown Heights tomorrow, where a Madricha position and amazing part time job await me. I am thrilled, and constantly smiling and marveling at how this is all shaping.
"Aint no one gonna break my stride, aint no one that could hold me down - oh no..."
I will not stop moving.
Whatever comes out of that chain will come back to the one who initiated it.
At the beginning of each chain and at the end, there lies purpose.
