Isn’t it Time to Glue Your Life Back to Better?
Meet Suzi Fox
Everyone has a story filled with surprises, unexpected disappointments and sometimes lots of pain. If my story can help encourage you, I have fulfilled my purpose.
Things you probably don’t know about me: I have been on my own since I was 17 years old. I have looked death in the face twice (that I know of), once with a gun to my head and the second time during a 10-year battle with cancer.
I have had the privilege of being with people as they took their final breath and transitioned from planet earth. I am not afraid of death. It is a simple step from one dimension to another…
I have been homeless twice, losing everything I owned except my laptop, flip flops, shorts and a tee shirt. I discovered writing can be therapeutic, so some of these blogs came from those seasons of devastation. I was fortunate to have uncovered the truth that suffering is an option and we get to choose how we want to navigate the storms of life.
We never know what people have been through or what hell they may currently be enduring, so be kind to one another. It is my heart’s desire to encourage and empower others.
If you have a story to share, or just need a kind word, feel free to email me Suzi@GlueYourLifeBackToBetter.com
In case we never have the opportunity to meet, I just wanted you to know that I was here, and I mattered…

At some point in time, we all must surrender to uncertainty. We are never trained in this; in fact, we are taught the opposite! We are told to plan, stick with the plan and do not get off course. But what happens when the wind brings a new set of circumstances? What do we do when there is a hurricane of the heart and change is imminent?
There are times in life when we are at a crossroads, a place of decision and all options may look good. What do you do? How do you access wisdom to make the correct choice? Do you call a trusted friend, read up on your options or worry about which way to go? While all those may be habits from the past, I believe there is a resource most of us overlook: the pause. Here are 3 steps to recognizing when there is a pause and how to pay attention to its meaning.
It’s been a few weeks now since we have been ordered to stay home and shelter in place due to the coronavirus crisis. Some folks rushed to the store to stock up on toilet paper and food items while others climbed into a bottle of vodka to find a place of refuge. No matter where you found yourself the next day, let me just say, this is not about judgement, but a time to encourage.
Change makes its way into all of our lives. Sometimes we sense it coming and try to push it back, thinking we will somehow block its intrusion. Other times change is thrust upon us by a decision of another person, or the sequence of events that catch us off guard. Either way this thing called change will continue to affect our lives like it or not.
Life is full of seasons. I’m not just referring to the winter, spring, summer or fall months, but seasons in business, in life, in relationships… What season are you in?
