Hi! I’m Sherry and I would love for you to join me on the journey to make every day more blissful!
Debilitating Illness. Clinical Depression. Suicidal Thoughts.
Not that many years ago, that was my life – not exactly a recipe for happiness. My joints were dissolving away on MRI scans while my life was falling apart before my eyes as my marriage, business and finances crumbled.
There were days when I physically couldn’t get out of bed without help and nights I sobbed alone in front of a computer screen, desperate for answers. Doctors were telling me I needed a course of chemo followed by a lifetime of immunosuppressant injections and/or I might end up in a wheelchair. I had to shut down my business when the joints in my fingers and wrists refused to allow me to type. But far and away, the very worst part was not being able to pick up my infant and toddler when they reached up for me and not being able to convince my older daughters that I really was going to be ok.
BUT… What seemed so awful at the time was actually the best thing that ever happened to me!
It took stakes this high for me to dig in and say “no” to things that didn’t serve me or my children (pharmaceuticals with scary side effects, unhappy relationships, sitting on the sidelines of my own life), and the courage to say “yes” to chasing bigger dreams that seemed out of reach (writing a book, starting a superfood company, stand-up comedy).
I finally listened to my own inner voice and made choices based on what my soul desired instead of outside pressure. Desperate for love & approval, I had spent decades trying fit other people’s ideas of who I should be and what I should do with my life and lost touch with my own purpose. My illness was a major blessing in disguise that changed my life for the better and I am eternally grateful!
Now, I am one of the happiest people I know – passionately researching and sharing ideas for creating an even more blissful life in ways that include:
Loving each child for who they are, where they are with my whole heart, doing my very best to encourage them in their individual strengths, appreciate their one-of-a-kind uniqueness and cut myself some slack when I’m not living up to the “supermom” image in my head.
What does this have to do with you?
Sometimes life is hard, and we can feel overwhelmed or alone. I’m here for you. I hope stopping by my little corner of the internet makes you feel like you’re in your best friend’s kitchen. Come as you are, let’s share stories, laughs and encouragement. The life of your dreams is right around the corner and I would love to have any small part in helping you make it happen!
