It was my junior year of college right before Thanksgiving and all I could think about was how many days were left before Christmas vacation when I’d be back home to see my new fiancé. Well, all up until 5am one morning when I awoke from an awful dream. I sat up in my bed, called my mother and told my mom, “I think (insert name) is cheating on me.” Now, if you knew (insert name) and I, you would know that he would’ve never been the one cheating. Everyone, including me, thought that this man would’ve done anything for me and straying would be the last thing I or anyone else would’ve ever considered.... Read More

Dear Shari...

I recently saw you post on Facebook a status in regards to being "open to the blessings in your life" so that you will be able to receive them and my question is, HOW!? Also, once you achieve getting to that place, how do you stop yourself from slipping back into that place of negativity?

--Desperate for More

Dear Desperate for More,

It starts simply with changing your thoughts. That's really the key to any sort of happiness in your life. If you are always filled with dread and waiting for the other shoe to drop, you're always going to encounter... Read More

When we were kids, our parents used to entrust us with our friends parents at sleepovers, with the neighbors when they needed to run some errands, and with our teachers, coaches and religious leaders when they would send us off to school or other activities. This has all since changed. We no longer deem adult/child relationships/friendships as appropriate. We somehow perceive them as unhealthy and morally wrong. When did developing and forming these relationships with children become an unacceptable thing? I personally think when we realized that there are people out there who do not... Read More

Dear Shari...

I need your help or I'm about to commit first degree murder on my boss. I like my boss a lot but she drives me up the wall with some of her personal habits. I cringe every time she comes near me because I know I'm going to hear that high pitched shreek asking me unnecessary questions. I know this might seem like an exaggeration or even a bit dramatic, but it really ruins my whole day at work. What can I do?!

--Working my last nerve

Dear Working my last nerve,

First off, please put the gun away. No person is worth jail time, even the highly annoying... Read More

(Disclaimer: I apologize for the seemingly narcissistic theme of this article, but hey, it is my birthday.)

It’s the eve of my 37th birthday and I’m busy wondering what the heck I did on my 36th birthday? Time is flying by so quickly and years are just overlapping. I sometimes think about the fact that a lot of my life is a blur. I usually don’t remember a lot of events until somebody brings something up specifically and then more often than not, they have to jog my memory of what happened. When I think about the fact that for some reason I don’t remember a lot, in some ways it saddens... Read More

Dear Shari...

You just recently posted something on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/groups/sharingwithshari?ap=1 talking about how one’s life is exactly where it’s supposed to be and how we should trust in the order of things even when it’s not what we pictured for ourselves or our lives. I really want to believe this right now. My girlfriend ended our 2 year relationship and moved out 5 days ago. Hard to make sense of anything right now…

--Searching for Answers

Dear Searching for Answers,

It unfortunately never does in the moment. This is one of those circumstances... Read More

I watched as the woman at Starbucks mumbled some expletives at someone who didn’t hold the door open for her. I watched as the man in the car blared his horn at the person who didn’t let him over in his lane. I watched as the woman cursed out another woman at the grocery store because she was blocking the doorway to get in. I watch as over and over we react and get so angry over things that are so outside of our control. I listen as people believe that their reactions are justified and in any way better than the person who supposedly is the rude one. I watch as so many of us become more confrontational... Read More
