About & Contact

Inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s (author of The Happiness Project) commandment to be “Be Gretchen,” this blog documents my journey as I discover what it means to “Be Sherilyn”, to know and be true to myself. However, I find the word “Be” static and prefer the fluidity of the word “Becoming.” Thus, Becoming Sherilyn.

Blog tagline is inspired by Henry James’ “It’s time to live the life you’ve imagined.”

More recently, I came across Kurt Vonnegut’s advice to high school students. In his letter (which is worth reading in its entirety) he counselled,

What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.

      • Very much deserved. I remember you mentioning on the K-A that you were going to start one, but I only got to check it out recently and boy was I / am I impressed! It really is a great blog, I imagine it will become even more popular over time. Best of luck. 🙂
