B"H another great day!

Today for some reason I got a few pssts from the Yetzer Hara. Nothing crazy, just little niggling urges here and there. B"H I was able to simply acknowledge them, be aware of them, and allow them to be without fighting them or engaging them. I just noticed the little nudges as they came and went and b"H I was able to get through my day without any issues. Be"H tomorrow will be a fresh new day I will be left alone, but be"H I will be okay with whatever tomorrow may bring.

I'll be keeping you posted!

It's very impressive to see how you clearly identify your enemy...
Rav Avigdor Miller writes, that’s why Hakodosh Boruch Hu commanded Moshe Rabeinu to put the snake very high up on a pole – because that’s the opposite of what the yetzer hara wants.  He wants to be as low as possible, that nobody should see him.  Nobody should know of him.  That’s when he’s most effective.  He says, “Don’t talk about me.  I’m an anav.  I don’t want publicity.  My success is incognito.”  And so, “Put him on a high pole,” Hashem said.  “Let everybody see the peril, the sakanah, so that they can overcome it.”
"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?"

B"H great day today again! 35 days so far!! 

Chasdei Hashem the nudges from the Yetzer Hara were much less today. Still a little bit here and there, but not much. In the past, once I would get those nudges I would start to panic and fight them which would make them grow and become more of a chalois. The next day would be worse, and after a day or two it would be all over. B"H being able to notice the Y"H's cheppers and allow them to be without fighting them lets them come and go without growing and taking me over. Thank you Hashem! Be"H veiter!

So nice to read these words!

One who has given up hope is without a G‑d.

One who sees hope in each day is already free

Thanks guys!

Thank you Hashem for another beautiful week of truly living!! Especially since I had some niggles from the Y"H that I was able to leave alone and let them wash away without building up.

Looking forward to next week! Shevua shechal bo!!

A Freilchen Shabbos,
Determinedtowin!
