Small Fish in a Big Sea

 

Happy Birthday Coach!

When I put www.google.com this came up! My birthday is tomorrow 🙂                                                It said Happy Birthday Coach!

Saturday is my day off the world, kids go to synagogue with my husband, I get to read and take a nice nap in a completely quiet house.  I ran across and article that talked about everyone having their own bubble, and I always talk about my happy bubble, and how I am oblivious and really do not understand another way of being.  When things get real I get into a focused zone to problem solve, move on, and climb back into my happy bubble. The following article talks about how communication is tough because we are all in our own bubble, what do you think?

I also love being in a big sea and see myself as one day being a big fish in a big sea, but the big sea is important for me.  I am a big city girl, originally from Moscow, then to Denver, Miami, and now Los Angeles, I cannot imagine living in a small town or out in the country with no people, diversity, or action.  I am fine with throwing myself in as the small fish, and then swimming around and finding the unique, fun, spiritual, artistic, kind, warm, and genuine fish to connect with.  I know a lot of people who enjoy being the big fish in a small pond, and they are essential to that pond, and it fits who they are.

That is also how I see Israel, it is a small fish in a big sea, it is unique, it stands for universal truths, diversity, spirituality, connection to God, and treating everyone kindly and fairly, and also defending what is ours.  I read some articles today that clearly demonstrate how it really is, so to all of my friends and anyone else that is interested in the truth, please click on the links below.

Here is the gist of the following article:

“Decades before the first Jewish settlement was ever built, there was a deep aversion toward Jews and Zionism. Between 1948 and 1967, when the West Bank was in Jordanian hands, and Israel was busy building a state while fighting off Arab armies, it was anti-Israel aggression that dominated Palestinian-Arab society, not the yearning for a state. The Palestinian national movement sprung to life only after Israel took over the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the Six Day War of 1967.

Since then, despite an emotional and biblical attachment to the West Bank, Israel has made several offers to end the occupation to allow Palestinians to build their own state. Yet, Palestinian leaders walked away each time, without even making counter offers. If you follow their narrative, who could blame them? Once they had taught their people to despise Zionists, how could they turn around and teach them to make peace with them?”
