In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Going forward in life and heritage

Many different things in this world are tempting, and the yetzer hara plays on those desires all around us, especially when someone's religious practice is rote and feels dry. Plus, many different negative situations are going on around us, one could fall through the cracks, G-d forbid.

here are 4 tips to help to bring meaning and fulfillment for our self and our family

1. Sometimes prayer and practices needs more soul. When we work on this our self, plus inspire others to have kavanah, it becomes uplifted. For example, finding different ways to help our children feel Hashem's love, and giving them a desire to do what we need to do. - When challenges arise in life, listen and sympathize with them, and help them use challenges to grow. And we should remember that sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference, like a hug.

2 Give them the intellectual stimulation they need to help them improve their knowledge and emunah. Each person is different. We need to give each child what they specifically need to help them enjoyably learn and grow.

3 Be a Good Example of Good Middos and behavior to inspire them to continue going forward.

4 And Pray for assistance, whether to feel it more internally or help someone else. Whether to understand well and give it over. Or to be a good example and positively inspire others---
