But we're not out of the woods yet.
Not even close.
We've got 10 Days of Teshuvah, then Yom Kippur, then Sukkot, which is our last chance to sweeten decrees.
And then there's the entire rest of the year for keeping our Rosh Hashanah resolutions.
And we want to be able to take with us what we absorbed & invested in Rosh Hashanah.
So what do we do now?
Here's Rav Miller on page 14 of Kingdom & Glory, the 5781 Rosh Hashanah Edition:(Note: The following will make more sense if you read that dvar Torah, or at least the post discussing it.)
Even on a regular Wednesday afternoon you should remind yourself about the commitment you made on Rosh Hashanah:
“Oh yes, I remember that day in shul. The chazan was singing tra-la-la, and I was telling myself that Hashem is the King.”
So you’re walking in the street on Kings Highway and the sun is shining and you remind yourself, “There’s no sun! It’s all Hashem Melech doing everything.”
And when you pass by the fruit stand, again, “There’s no fruit in that fruit bin—it’s the dvar Hashem!”
You can shout it too: “Hashem Melech!”
Wait till the train comes by and there’s such a loud noise from the train and the cars and the trucks, no one will hear you.
Shout “Hashem Melech!”
