Day 8 of the Omer

Chesed in Gevurah - kindness in power and rigor.

This ranks high on the list of difficult personal lessons, when to be kind to ourselves as we hold to our high personal standards.

Most of us judge ourselves so harshly, push internally so hard. Our psyches deserve our compassion as well - assert self-rigor with self-care.

Happy definite end to Passover for all and happy Omer counting!
