    Just coming off of three days away from everything in the world, and I need a vacation from the vacation. It is all good, but fascinating how exhausting reflection, socialization, eating non stop, and delving deep into your soul is.

    The word reflection has so many meanings, it makes me think of a mirror, as well as of reviewing life and making decisions.

    From Rabbi Wolpe: Rabbi Azriel Hildesheimer explains – if you drop a stone it falls to earth because that is its origin. If you light a fire it leaps up because it is nourished by air above. Everything seeks its source. The soul longs to return to God, to soar, to rise. Teshuva means return – to reconnect with our Source. #Elul

    I just did one of those game quizzes about what kind of Doula am I. I usually describe myself as an empowerment Doula. I support, but focus on the woman finding her power and creating an environment where she feels she can make her own choices. The result I got was NURTURER, which is also true, because in the moment I become what they need, it is hard to put into words, but nurturer comes close.

    A Doula is specifically labor support, there is also post partum, and some specialties such as termination. However, we become support people in many areas of our lives, take this Doula quiz and see what is your support specialty, What Kind Of Doula Are You?!

    I really loved the quiet of the last few days,

    I also love the quiet when my kids are in school and I get to focus on me,

    I love my alone time,
