“Seed your dreams. Water your hopes.
Weed like crazy. Tend to your own garden and allow others to do the same.”
– Sheri Salata, The Beautiful No
THE PATH I’M WALKING
I am here for it. All of it.
It took me a while, but I finally understand that this life experience of mine is not only precious but original. I have come to see that my joy ride is equal to my willingness to expand my consciousness. I have come to know that the “how” is looking at “what is” without flinching and then turning boldly to my glorious future.
At 21, I dabbled in the self help aisles of a thousand bookstores looking for the formula to liberate me from feeling unworthy.
At 35, I began to manifest the career of my dreams.
At 56, I began to manifest the life of my dreams.
And now, I smile when I hear myself say I have never been happier, more on my path, more fulfilled and more excited about what’s to come.
What a road I have walked! What gems I have gathered along the way! Even so, I’m just beginning to understand the mystical nature of this life experience and I applaud the quantum wonder of it all.
We expand. We rise. We expand. We rise. The only question I ask myself these days – Are you willing to rise to the level of your expansion, Sheri?
I find that I am.
