Hi, I'm Cheryl ~ Welcome to my Energy Center I'm a Motivational Speaker and Life Coach... if only to myself. 16 years ago my life started to spiral out of control. Within a span of 2 years, I experienced ... My Second Divorce Bankruptcy Foreclosure Lost my job Lost my house Got a new job My Mom had a stroke on my Bday!! 9-11 happened the next day!! I moved 3 times I suffered from Depression I had Suicidal thoughts ... and one failed attempt ... On top of all of that ... add the bullshit & drama that goes along with it! I couldn't believe the depth of pain I felt ... It actually hurt to breath because of the unbearable pain deep in my core ... deep in my soul. If you have never felt that pain ... you can't even imagine. And I pray you never will. If you have felt that pain and made it through ... you know what I'm talking about! You are a Survivor! And if you are feeling that pain now ... if you feel you can't possibly survive another day of feeling lost and out of control ... KNOW THIS ... you. will. survive. Believe it or not, during those life shattering 2 years of my life ... I somehow managed to keep it together enough to go to school & classes and get certified in ... Masage Reiki Reflexology Bartending (for shits & giggles) I attended countless other classes & workshops including ... Spirituality Aroma Therapy Energy Meridians Chakras Stress Management Meditation Making Chocolate! Making herb vinegar Gardening Bread Making Etc. etc. ... I don't have a Magic Pill to give you to help you make it through ... all I can do is tell you this ... trust that you are worth it ... have faith you will get through this ... and never give up on yourself. You are a Survivor! If I can do it ... #My❤️isHappy! #IneverGaveUp #YouCanCreateYourOwnLife #IfYouHaveFaithTheSizeOfaMustardSeedNothingWillBeImpossible

Wedding Dress Train or CVS Receipt …

This looks like a CVS Receipt when you buy a pack of gum …



Spinach & Mushroom Scrambled Eggs …

I added a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese at the end.


We were so famished after working in the yard, it was gone before I thought to take a picture of the finished product!




World’s easiest tomato sauce …

created by Marcella Hazan ~

Pour a can of tomatoes in a pot, add an onion, add butter and salt, simmer for 45 minutes.

The sauce

1 28-ounce can peeled tomatoes (and their juice)

1 white onion, peeled and cut in half

5 tablespoons butter

Salt to taste

And literally, just put them in a pot and let it simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally and mash tomatoes that don’t break up on their own. This makes four servings.


• I like San Marzano tomatoes; look for BPA-free cans or use jarred tomatoes.

• You can remove the onion, chop it up, and then return it.

• To coat the pasta nicely, remove it from the boiling water just before it’s done and add it to the tomato sauce with a little bit of the pasta water to finish cooking.
