My Yom Kippur goals are simple, as they really are my goals year-long, I just have more time to think about it while I’m doing that whole undercaffeinated-not-eating-praying-sitting-in-synagogue thing.
Be a better me today than I was yesterday. Be a better me tomorrow than I was today.
Be more gracious today than yesterday. Be more grateful tomorrow than today.
Moving forward a little bit at a time is something I can do without risk of drowning, feeling like a failure, or giving up. (Or all three.)
I will never be a runner because a) I have a fairly horrific case of shin splints and b) I like to sit on my couch. But I do want to make movements to get in shape since my little (read: big) cinnamon bun habit is catching up with me. But who says I have to be runner? The way I see it, I just need to move more today than yesterday. And then move more tomorrow than today.

Little is big.
Today. And definitely tomorrow.
