Count the Omer 2015: Day 14


Day 14: Malchut within Gevurah
Leadership within Strength
This is the end of the week of gevurah. I think that it is fitting for each week to end with malchut, because we should be able to take all the lessons of the week and use them to become better leaders. We can learn from Hillary's campaign how to show kindness in a position of power; consciously develop different kinds of strength within ourselves, including self-confidence; find inspiration in the incredible inner strength of Mary Todd Lincoln and Holocaust survivors like Eva Kor; and work to ensure that the foundations of our skills and experiences are strong. By strengthening ourselves in these ways, we can become stronger leaders.
