Alright, alright. So I haven’t written in, like, 3 months. But I have a really good excuse. Yours truly has been busy training to become a Doula! I went to the 3-day workshop last month (Thank you for the zillionth time to my amazing husband for taking care of the boys while I was away), which was led by internationally-renowned Doula Debra Pascali-Bonaro, author of “Orgasmic Birth” and producer of the accompanying film, world traveler and attendant at births from South Africa to indigenous regions in New Zealand to NYC. In this birth world, this woman is like Celine Dion. Needless to say, I was like the really annoying kid in class who kept raising her hand and asking a zillion questions. I spent the whole training lit up like a menorah.
Well, today I went to a meeting with my first prospective client up in Central Jersey, and I have never been so excited in my life. I used to believe that a job is a job, something you have to suffer through in order to survive. But I don’t think so anymore. Today I believe that every person deserves a job that makes them say to themselves, “I can’t believe I actually get PAID to do this!”. Everyone deserves to do something with their lives that makes them feel, well, alive. I feel so lucky that I finally found that “thing” that does it for me.
More to come. I promise.
