Elul inspirations...

Well my son was born during Elul. Two days after 9/11 in fact. So Elul is a bittersweet time for me. I remember the stark contrast of newborn smell and the smell of carnage. He was a sweet little baby. I learned so much about newborns. I also didn't get much sleep.

I did manage to dream. I wondered what he would look like as he got older; what he would be when he grows up...typical new mommy hopes and dreams.

Elul, is a time when I wonder who I will be when I grow up. Every year the goals change. I discover a new inner strength and weakness on an annual basis. Some years, the weaknesses seem to outnumber the strengths.

I found this article on Aish and it's very cool:
6 Steps To Fulfilling Your Dreams

So check it out and you may be pleasantly surprised at what you find out about yourself!
