This week, I had the zechus to visit an older relative. I learned a few lessons from this visit, but my favorite was as follows. I really liked the fact that this person's neshama, which had gone through the garbage of the world, came out so clean and pure and is still spreading HASHEM’S holy wisdom on such a high level!
This week's parsha, Parshas Metzorah talks about, and goes through the process of purification. People throughout life go through many phases of purification, whether they went through the lowest of dumps, or to the highest of levels. Even the most minor changes helps the purification process. The most important thing to remember is that no matter who you are, no matter what you have (even tzara’as,) you can bounce back and clean it up!
So to recap my week and leave you with a message straight from 2 close relatives:
In life you may have challenges, and it may seem totally negative. Your strength shows when you hold onto your horses and do your hishtadlus. With Hashem's help, everything will work out well.
ALL the best
