I do this to myself every Elul.  I want to reflect on the past year and improve.  Only I never do much reflecting.  I have been trying to find a daily meditation for Elul, but I think I would be better off setting myself up to write every day for 29 days.  Who would like to join me?  Below are the writing prompts I have come up with, of course nothing is written in stone, and if you can think of something to switch please let me know!

  1. Awaken
  2. Sin
  3. Forgiveness
  4. Repentance
