AWAKEN THE DAWN!
7 (8) My lev is nachon (steadfast), O Elohim, my lev is nachon; I will sing and make music.
8 (9) Awake, my kavod (glory, soul, life); awake, nevel and kinnor; I myself will awake the shachar (dawn). Tehillim 57
After going through a time of great darkness and pain, how do we live on? One may think that you can't start a new life right away. You must wait for a new moon to appear, for time to pass, and when things are different, only then will you start to live again.
This is not the case. You can't wait until then.

You might think that joy can only come during daylight, when the sun is shining and things are good. No. Don't wait around until your mood changes. Force yourself to embrace life now, even when it is still dark. Let your soul shine in the darkness. Whatever is before you, whether you have matzah, the bread of freedom, or maror, the bitter herbs, you need to start your new life today.
