The world is filled with limitless opportunities for pleasure and enjoyment. What destroys this potential is that we become used to what we already have and take things for granted. We do not derive great joy and limitless pleasure from the natural world -- because we become habituated to its sights and experiences.
Today, try focusing your appreciation on an everyday occurrence you've been taking for granted. Here's one idea: Before eating, say the proper blessing and express gratitude to G-d for the good taste and sustenance of the food.
Look at the sunshine and beautiful weather we have at this time of the year. Not to hot and not cold yet. Soak it in. I just spend time In Tel Aviv yesterday and going again today. Anything different gives you an opportunity to appreciate what you already have and enjoying seeing something different, becuase for some variaty is the spice of life.

It's official: Aliya Day to be a national holiday
The Knesset passed in a final reading a law instituting the holiday on the seventh of the Hebrew month Cheshvan.
There's going to be a new holiday on the calendar: Aliya Day.
The Knesset passed in a final reading a law instituting the holiday on the seventh of the Hebrew month of Heshvan, coinciding with the reading of the Torah portion in which Abraham is told to leave his home to go to what is now Israel.
The bill was proposed by MKs Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beytenu), Avraham Neguise (Likud), Miki Zohar (Likud), Hilik Bar (Zionist Union) and others.
On Aliya Day, schools will teach about the contributions immigrants made to Israel, the cabinet will hold a special meeting and ceremonies will be held by the President's Residence, the IDF and police.
Naguise said "the law is declarative but is very important to ensure the recognition of the importance of aliya and encouraging it, and improving the treatment of new immigrants, so that we recognize every new immigrants brings a significant contribution to the country."
Jay Shultz, founder of TLV Internationals and president of the Am Yisrael Foundation, which helped conceive of the bill, said: "We have tremendous gratitude to the members of Knesset that chose to adopt and champion our young immigrants grassroots community movement celebrating Aliya Day... It is incredibly meaningful that we as young Jews can connect the biblical historical truth of Joshua crossing the Jordan to our modern practical reality.
It is the ideal of aliya and the pioneering contributions of immigrants in each generation that make this the easiest time in history to be a Jew living in the Land of Israel."

What's Wrong with christianity?
Missionaries go out on the streets knocking on doors, looking everywhere, trying to convert anyone they meet to their idolatry. They particularly love to convince Jews of their foolishness and recently have been an increasing problem in Israel. What is wrong with their beliefs? What is so bad about their religion? Well, for one thing…
