    Wow, brave Susie, you are truly an inspiration! Thank you so much for sharing your story. So much resonated and I am awfully grateful for following my intuition, having chosen to listen to you despite the late hour here in Paris!!! A perfect timing for a brave decision though! Amazing how Life unfolds… Again, thank you both for such an empowering conversation! Much love and many blessings.

    Wow! What an inspiration this woman is.The way she dealt with her health issue that could have been so devastating, the metaphors she’s used; listening to her mind and body speak to her ! Her use of mindfulness and meditation is a great example of how beneficial it really is. Thank you Susie for telling us your story. You are a brave woman!

    Hearing what she said about what breaks her heart really hit home. And it showed me again, that just pushing through my insecurities isn’t the answer. It is to let my self be inspired by other women. That helps me to see a purpose in my life and therefore direction. Being able to be a contributing member of society is both rewarding and motivating. Using, and watching out for opportunities to use those tools is one of my best weapons against the inner critic of my mind.
    Thank you

    Thank you Susan, your story is inspiring and like you I believe that slowing down and doing less we end up accomplishing more especially in relationship with others.
    I would love to get in contact with you because I also know an american angel woman who runs a school in Xela Guatemala since 25 years ago to help children out of the streets and empower women to have their voice. I am very involved with them.
    Maybe we could put her in contact with Norma? Let me know what you think. Thank you so much!

    Absolutely loved Being BRAVE over Perfection, what does it feel like in the body? Shifts from, being bold to vulnerable, to fighting, to letting go; not just ‘movie’ brave. Staying in tune with what’s growing inside, but choosing joy over fear, until the fear feels lighter and lighter, and then feels easier! Thank you for sharing and inspiring us with your immense bravery Susie. Co-creating inspired strength for us all. X

    I liked this immensely — especially the bravery instead of perfection. We all need to hear this.
