Changes ahead – Holiday Inspiration & a giveaway

Changing – Growing – Inspiring

Hi Friends,

Lately I have been feeling so overwhelmed with deadlines – commitments – trying to keep on all the sites that I have and just feeling like time is getting away from me – then I came across an article the other day in Happinez Magazine that spoke about the Hindu way and how they believe life is like a circle and never ends.   So in reality there is never “not enough time”.  They think of time as space  – not an hour or minute or day, and so they just take the space that they are in and try to be a better person and create a better life as much as they can while they are in this space.

It really got me thinking about changing the way that I think.

But even more so, it got me moving more towards where I feel I “need” to be and maybe where I don’t need to be.  Making “space” for things that matter and letting some of the other stuff go.

Almost like an omen I came across Monica Garcia’s latest blog post – all about change and letting go – such a beautiful and inspiring post and you can read it here .

So this morning using my butterfly Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue I shuffled the deck asking the question if what I was about to change was right for me.  And this is the card I selected

 One of the big changes that I am making this next year is letting go of Facebook – my business page – my group and my personal page.  Although this is where I got my start – which is why it has been tugging at me to decided to keep it or not.  I know that there are some who have started with me on FB and are not on Instagram – but I will still have my blog and website  and Youtube channel so we can connect in all those places.  There have been many things that have been pushing me to give up Facebook and I think now it’s time.  Change can be hard but to allow space for new exciting and important things it’s what needs to happen.

I want to be able to connect with people in a deeper more meaningful way.

I want to inspire people – touch peoples lives in a positive way

I will also be focusing more of my time on commissioned art – creating more online classes and for the first time in almost 3 years I will be starting in person classes and /or retreats.

I have a beautiful heartfelt retreat that I am currently working on for 2018 and as soon as I can share details with all of you I will.

Just a note:  December’s newsletter will be going out by Sunday – we are doing work at our house so I have been some days with on internet access which has made it hard to get things done.  Sorry for the delay my friends.

Hope you all have an amazing day!!

xoxo – Sherry

  1. Sherry, I am so glad you are getting rid of some that “stress” in your life. I follow an artist that is on 11 social media sites!!! My goodness!!! Is that really needed?? I dont think so. If we follow you, we will go to where you are. Any one or two sites you choose. We all need to monitor the stress in our life. I should know, in 1997 my adrenal glands decided to shut down from over load. I fell flat on my face. It took 18 months of intense work to recover. I will never be the same as I was before and the DR.’s said I just took 15 to 20 years off my life. I would hate for this to happen to you or to anyone. Keeping our stress level down is so important. Art helps so much!!!

    1. Laurie thank you so very much for your kind words and understanding. I realize that people do not like change but it’s something I have been contemplating for awhile and feel now it the time to take action on it. I truly appreciate all of your comments and support !! xoxo
