Years ago I would have agreed because I used to feel a massive resistance when I would say Happy Holidays. In my mind I had to say because I felt I had to please everyone. In my heart I felt insistent on saying Merry Christmas. But, as we grow our perceptions change and so do the reason we say and do specific things…here’s my reason why I actually InJOY saying Happy Holidays now.
In order for us to be parents we have to be strong. We don’t know what the ultimate destiny is for our children, it’s not our choice or our soul contracts – it’s theirs. They could have made a bad decision that will change their life forever or maybe they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. The only thing we truly know is how and when they come into this world, the rest is ultimately up to them and Creator. No matter how painful it may be, it’s not up to us to know their destiny or create it for them.
My son packed for college and it only took him half a day. I may be a procrastinator but I don’t think I would have ever waited till the day before leaving to begin packing for one of the biggest transitions of my life. I sat there with a double edged sword – judging him, inside of myself for him waiting till the last minute and the other side of me with my heart melting, savoring every last minute of the messy room as I help him fold his wrinkled clothes and put it into boxes.
When I look back on the last 18 years of raising my son, especially the last 4 years of “teendom”, there are many things I would have, could have or I think he should had done differently.
Does it seem like the world is crashing down on you and you just can’t take it anymore? Why does it seem like it’s ALWAYS something, a downward spiral? Wonder why can’t you get along with your mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son? Do you ask yourself why is it that all the good men/women are taken and you can’t get a solid, supportive, loving relationship?

Yes, I am a manifesto! Not on everything…but I’m getting really good at it and I’m ready to share if you are ready to read these great tips.
This may not sound like a big deal to you, but it was to me. Manifesting could be about ANYTHING and my focus was on manifesting an extra ticket for my son’s graduation. When I talk about manifesting…I mean it pretty much just shows up!!!
Here’s what happened and WHY it happened…
When I was younger, sexier and single there was no way someone could ever could PAY me enough money to do the things I do now being a MOM. If I worked a job that made me feel the way I do right now I would have thought they were NUTS and I would have quit a long time ago. I would have thought for SURE there was some type of law against working for free, because slavery went out a LONG time ago. But, I love my job, it’s completes me, it’s who I (more…)
Looking for a great bargain or something for free? Do you love wheeling and dealing? You may want to think twice about what you are putting out to the Universe the next time you try to lower someone down and bargain with their pricing or offer. Life is an energy exchange and you may actually be bargaining your life away. Remember the spiritual law, it is better to give than to receive? When you want something for free or for nothing, you are actually sending out signals to the Universe that you don’t want to give. You are resisting what you are giving to the other person. Do you dread writing a check for your bills? Are you financially stuck? Do you dread ever having to pay full price for a service? If you want to move ahead, but don’t want to pay for it or you wonder why you don’t have clients or friends that are financially abundant then take a deeper look at what is driving your decision making. Is bargaining down to the last penny really worth it to you? Here is another way of looking at it. Do you want to always look for the ways to cut back, save and scrimp in your life or do you want to live a lifestyle that is committed to creating financial abundance?
The other day I woke up feeling a little off, even with a bit of a headache which NEVER happens to me. But, every once in a while, this being human thing can get you. It wasn’t a totally BAD day, but I could tell it wasn’t a GREAT day and I wasn’t feeling my normal, happy self.
Maybe its because its Spring Break and my daughter had 2 friends over for the entire day the and then they decided to sleepover and have a Harry Potter movie marathon till 2am? Or, maybe, its because I have a lot on my plate balancing business, family, social life. Never the less, I managed to get through the day feeling blah and I think every once in a while we can be entitled to do that. It’s that yin and yang feeling, because it grounds you to come back to a reality check and realize that I was actually happy being miserable and complaining for that one day and it makes me truly live in gratitude for all the good days I have because this was definitely NOT the Sherinata I KNOW!!!
Then, I found out it was a full moon…Thank goodness I had an excuse! Just an FYI – when there is a full moon, its no joke…the entire planet shifts…
Live your life as if tomorrow never comes and do what you can today to achieve living best life right now.
