The #10Days between Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) are a period of reflection on our lives, our mistakes and our challenges. Yom Kippur challenges us to consider ways in which we missed our potential.
These #10Days call to mind the 10 days (sometimes 2 weeks) spent post infertility treatment procedure waiting for the pregnancy test. They can go quickly or they can be excruciating. As they continue on, some may begin to question everything and worry. The not knowing. The wishing there was one more thing that could have been done. Mor waiting. Second guessing. Hope. Doubt.
#FertileThoughts: As you look back and consider how you could have done differently, whether Yom Kippur or on your fertility journey, think ahead:
1) How can you re-frame actions to create success. (Hint: What does success really mean?)
2) What are real expectations based on real possibilities? (Hint: be positive and open minded, but as my teacher put it, “not so much that your brain falls out of your head…)
3) How can you help others on their journey? (Hint: You are not alone. Everyone benefits when we help others)
Suggestions for seven more are welcome…
