QUOTE OF THE DAY“Human nature is averse to pain and discomfort. We want everything to be smooth. But we don’t grow from staying still. We don’t bring our dreams alive by playing it safe. We don’t get what we want by waiting for God to deliver it to our doorstep. We must embrace difficulty and change if we are to create a fulfilling life for ourselves. If a boat is not rocking, it’s not going anywhere.”Rabbi Yehuda Berg
