“While it may not be the new year on the Hebrew calendar 📆, it’s always a good time to take stock and look at where we’re heading in life.
It’s discussed in the Chovos Halevovos that Hashem imbues every person with special talents and abilities which are a sign of what career path one should go down to earn a parnasa (a livelihood). 💰
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that by choosing to go down a route that seems to be more lucrative or held in higher esteem in society, but is not aligned with the gifts G-d gave you, that you will earn more or be more successful.
You won’t make a penny more and you’ll be miserable on top of it. 😞
Hashem gave you what you need to earn a living. The talents and interests He gave you are for a reason and we must trust Him that He is guiding us in the right direction.
So, if you’re stuck in a job or a career you hate and you have other interests or talents you wanted to pursue, then this year I encourage you to start exploring them.
You don’t have to be miserable or live life in fear. Find what it is you’re meant to do in this world and go do that! 👍”
