Passover - a Time of Renewal

I've been enjoying Passover this year.  With only 2 more days to go, I'm not tired of matzah and not craving hametz (the term used for the foods forbidden on Passover).  Why do I feel this way?  Perhaps it is because I am have been working on my inner self as well.  Searching for the inner hametz - the crumbs which I've left unattended and are now growing things.  It is so easy to let them go and lie there, but when we let the inner stuff go unattended - they always seem to come back in negative ways.

So - whether or not you are Jewish, are keeping Passover, or have even heard of Passover - - I hope that you are finding ways to deal with your internal crumbs.

Great post, Leah! I really like what you said about those internal crumbs! So true! Thanks so much for getting this in for The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. I know it was a last-minute request. Appreciate it!

We'll have another edition next month as well. I hope you join us again for that one.

Leah, those internal crumbs of my life are what recently brought me back to the Child Abuse Survivor community and to your blog. Thanks for the analogy. It works.

You're so right about whe you let things go unattended. My T says "That which we resist persists." How true!
