Hey! Hi! I’m Sherry and I’m a big fan of slow living, de-stressing, and enjoying life in between the busy moments.
The quick details:
I’m a Canadian wife and mom. I was born in Toronto but from the age of 6 months, I grew up in Montreal. In 2011 we moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia and I still can’t believe I actually live in an oceanside city. (Read about that in my announcement post) Being able to beach it on regular weekends instead of just vacations is pretty spectacular. I enjoy watching a few too many TV shows (especially The Walking Dead and Scandal), movies with lots of action, and reading books that take me into other lives. I’m a bit of a social media addict but also love putting the phone down to enjoy family time. My phone’s never too far away, though, because wherever I am I want to capture memories in photos.
Anxiety has been my long-term loyal companion for about two decades now, and I have learned that one way to manage it so that I don’t let it control me completely is to make time to slow down, enjoy quiet moments, and spend time wisely on myself to recharge. Sometimes that looks like reading a book in the corner of my living room, other times it means watching something that either makes me laugh until I cry or scares the hell out of me (I’m a big fan of scary movies and love just about everything to do with zombies – I even have a zombie-focused blog so it’s really quite the obsession).
Anxiety will never leave me, I know that, but I have found little ways to live side by side with it – not quite as good friends but as neighbors that tolerate each other. I can’t tell you how to manage YOUR stress, anxiety, or overwhelm, but I can share what’s worked for me. If it works for you too, then that’s great!
