This month, Rosh Chodesh Nisan is the first month that the Jewish people celebrated. It was just as we were leaving Egypt when G-d told us to sanctify the new moon, “This month [Nisan] will be for you the beginning of the months, it will be for you the first of the months of the year (Exodus 12:1).” Something that differentiated our status as slaves to that of free men and women was reclaiming a sense of time. In order to make the most out of Freedom, G!d began to give us tools to do so, the first of which was an understanding of time. How often do we set goals but cannot figure out how to execute them? We may be free, creative and full of ideas but without good time management, our ability to manifest anything is hampered. Rosh Chodesh Nisan gives us the opportunity to not only think about our goals but also how we will achieve them.
By diving into the practice of time management that G!d has given us, may we be blessed to transform the gift of freedom into an opportunity to achieve our wildest dreams!
