Count the Omer 2015: Day 15

Day 15: Chesed within Tiferet, Loving-kindness within Balance
Welcome to the week of tiferet, of balance, beauty, and compassion. How does balance impact kindness? When my life feels out of balance, it is easy for me to get wrapped up in whatever issue is dominating my time, often to the detriment of my relationships with others. I can unintentionally brush people off unkindly if my mind is elsewhere.

Today's challenge is to balance your preoccupations with the people in front of you. Even when your life feels dominated by one thing, take a deep breath and remember that it is equally (if not more) important to give others your undivided attention at times too.
