#BlogExodus: Begin

It’s a good thing #BlogExodus has no rules because if it did, I would already have messed up. Moving too fast, multi-tasking, and failing to pay attention, I used the prompt for 2 Nisan for yesterday’s post, and so now I get to begin again.

Yay….a do-over! And one with no consequences.

Perhaps from this blip on my screen, this imperfection, blemish, failing, shortcoming, defect, deficiency, and blotch, I can learn that it’s normal to make mistakes…and I should stop being so hard on myself when the mistakes are mine.

“No worries,” I say to others frequently. “No worries,” I need to begin to say to myself.

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima , this post is one in a series marking the days of the Jewish month of Nisan leading up to Passover, which begins at sundown on Friday, March 30, corresponding to the Hebrew date 15 Nisan 5778. If you want to play along, check out this year's #BlogExodus and #ExodusGram prompts .
