Be Yourself. Hmm, who else would you be, right? Well, I keep getting the be yourself message from various sources which baffles me since I feel that I am pretty good about cutting through the BS and just being me. So, when repeatedly being given this message, I have to ponder and ‘check in’ with myself to see if perhaps I’m presenting myself in a less than “full Sheri” way. So, I’ll think more about this. In the meantime, are you being yourself? Are you compromising who you are because you feel you’re supposed to present yourself in a way that isn’t your authentic, true self? Or maybe, you’re just not presenting your full self, only presenting part of your personality, part of what makes you special. Let’s ponder that together. And, maybe even make adjustments that “fit” us better so that we are being our true, authentic, full selves. Go for Positive!

Do you notice when little messages are strewn for you to pick up and decipher? Today was a day where I linked a message from yesterday with one from today which made me really ”hear” the message. Here goes… Yesterday, I was so drawn to purchase a beautiful bracelet made of clear crystals, jade, silver pieces, blue stones, and a dangling pendant that reads, “Trust in your dreams,” on one side and, “Be free” on the other side. It was as if my hand couldn’t reach for any other bracelet offered except that one. Had to have it. Bought it. Then today, mom and I were wandering around the local swap meet and I was attracted to a table where sat a music box that played a delicate tune that I didn’t recognize. I just knew that I had to have it without totally knowing why. It just felt special and significant. So, I complied with my instincts and took it home. When I got home, I immediately unwrapped it and wound it up to play its tune when mom said, “Hey, it’s playing “Dream the Impossible Dream.” Now, lately I’ve been having these really cool dreams about my future and in some ways they seem real, yet maybe a bit stretched, yet very, very exciting. And, I SO believe that the universe is totally wanting me to know that it’s working its magic to make those “impossible” DREAMS come true! I’m a TOTAL believer. Woo hoo! What messages is the universe sending you? Go for Positive!

Tip: How to help yourself when you could use a quick reprieve from a hectic day. Slow your pace enough to take in some slow, deep breaths. Breathe in through your nose to the count of 4 and exhale through your nose with gentle force to release the air, also to the count of 4. You might want to imagine inhaling pleasant, healthy, peaceful thoughts and exhaling that which is not serving you (anything you deem needs to be released from your mind or body). In with the good and out with the ick. Do this in/out breathing method about 4 times to calm yourself and recalibrate. If nothing in particular is bothering you, this method can still help to serve you by relaxing you. Ahhhhh. Go for Positive!

“Even in the worst situations, I feel that there is hope.” ~Sheri Varela, Affirmations with Attitude. In reading this statement today, I saw new meaning. I think that I typically felt that the “hope” in the statement referred to something returning to the positives of what once was, or feeling the “hope” of changing into a better version of what once was. It dawned on me that the “hope” could be to completely close one scenario, and move forward into something totally new and unknown, having nothing to do with what once was, but changing into something fresh and exciting and completely unknown instead, for the benefit of a brand new experience altogether. Hmmm… It’s a rather cool feeling to expand a definition/perspective to expand oneself. Ya might want to expand some of your definitions (perspectives) on somethings too. Go for Positive!
