Rabbi is asking for you to have a tallis or shawl or any meaningful piece of clothing available to wrap yourself.
Rabbi would also like you to think of ONE word that describes some attribute about you and one word about the world that you would like to celebrate.
In addition, think about ONE word about an attribute in an area you need to grow and an attribute about the world that you would like to change.

Selichot begins the introspective period that is the hallmark of the High Holy Days. The effect of a Selichot service can be quite moving. You sense the extraordinary nature of the prayer and turn introspectively within yourself. It’s a time to begin to think about all of your experiences, all of your behaviors, and all you have ever been and done. The prayers themselves are pleas for mercy. The words cause you to consider how you can break the cycle of your life and change yourself for the better. There is no part of you that is not welcome – all the parts of you are parts of God.
