It's the end of 2017?! I can't believe it but here we are! Tis' the season and the holidays are happening! We wrapped season 25 of DWTS last month! 25?! Can anyone believe it’s been a year since #allthethings came to life and since my "How To 2017" blog!?? I CANT.
It's been busy to say the least. I'm getting ready to go out on the road again with my DWTS fam. We've been rehearsing and preparing THE BEST DWTS live tour yet. We just had our first whole run through and wow... guys it’s amazing. I can't wait to see you all across the country whether it’s at meet and greets or by the buses! Make sure you wear or bring your #sharnashop merch so I can sign it for you! Thank you for loving and supporting #allthethings with me this year! There is so much more to come.
What else? I bought my first home which was a massive milestone for me, I started my own merchandise, I just wrapped a really special project I created straight from my heart to yours that is set to release in 2018! And just a few days ago I finished a fun project featuring Artem! It's strange, sexy and you just have to wait and see. Oh And!!!!... WOO is here for the holidays! YES! spending some time with my favorite woman. Oh what a year it’s been. (Still haven’t found a human... But working on it 😉)
With more blessings than I can count I wanted to take some time thinking of all the ways I can give back to you, the loved ones in my life and perfect strangers. I know we all have more to give than we think we do. I know we can all be kinder, more tolerant and simply more loving.
Sometimes we forget how fortunate we are and how difficult others have it in the same exact moment, somewhere else. If you can afford to give something, anything... Even $1.00 I urge you to. What you can DO is just as important, spread the word, volunteer, call and donate your services in whatever capacity you can for any amount of time. Anything is still something, and it is needed and appreciated.
There are dogs who are in need of blankets at your local shelter. People in need of a warm meal and a warm place to sleep. A child in need of an education and an opportunity. Someone who is fighting for their life and unable to afford treatment.
If you find you have more to give this holiday season, I urge you to keep these causes in mind.
