Everyday Holiness. Finding the holy in the everyday helps ensure that we don't take life for granted.

Imagine reciting 100 blessings each day—that’s what the Talmud teaches. (Menachot 43b) According to tradition, we should say these blessings over experiences ranging from waking and eating to wearing new clothes or starting a journey. There is even a prayer for smelling a freshly mown lawn. Why? Blessings remind us that our lives are full of moments waiting to be lived fully. The act of thanking God for creating fragrant grass turns an everyday occurrence into something holy.
