New Year, New Beginnings

Today is Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year- Happy 5769! It seems almost perfectly fitting that today is "day 1" for me, the first day of my cycle. It is one day closer to my next IUI. Day 3, I'll be doing bloodwork. Day 10, a hysteroscopy. Next month, the treatment can begin. Today, I am one day closer to meeting my live baby (or babies), smelling baby smells, kissing mushy baby heads.

Think Good Thoughts by Rabbi Nachman
Since Rosh Hashanah in the “head” of the year, our minds should be focused properly and we should think only good thoughts. Rosh Hashanah is like a blueprint for the year to come, so positive thinking can help shape our year for the good. Your speech has the power to create, for better or for worse. What we talk about on Rosh Hashanah deeply influences the year to come.

The cards of life are stacked in your favor. Overall, you're far
more likely to succeed than fail, and to thrive than dive. Don't let the
inevitable setbacks get you down. You are on your way to all you have been dreaming for, and so am I...

Whirlpools of love,
The Universe
