Greetings from the Editor:

It's Here Again

January is here again and collectively most people celebrate this month as a new beginning. Why not join in and set new patterns in motion in your life? I like to write down things I wish to explore in the next year that will improve my life, from my habits and beliefs to taking risks to actualize my potential. Then a year from now I read it. You might like to do this too.

You will notice some improvements on my website. One: all the past newsletter articles are easy to find. On the homepage you'll see a button that says Read Previous Articles, under the Newsletter section. And two: there is an e-book section where you can download three of my e-books, as well as Seed Thoughts for Loving Yourself.

Happy New Beginnings!

Fortunate Blessings,



If I Knew The Big Picture,
I Would Not Feel Like A Victim

By Suzanne E. Harrill       

I recently read an interview with the popular country singer, Naomi Judd, promoting her best seller, Naomiís Breakthrough Guide: 20 Choices to Transform Your Life. She illustrates perfectly how one changes a life of victimization to one of empowerment by understanding how life works. It is easy to feel like a victim when painful, challenging, out-of-control things happen in our lives. In addition, the support you receive from most others actually fuels feelings of powerlessness and fearfulness, which in turn keeps the patterns repeating themselves. It is almost an automatic response to feel victimized until we learn to consider new interpretations of reality which give us clues to what the pain is all about and how to change the patterns. This article is not a discussion on children, but how we as adults can change our consciousness to empower ourselves and to change the results we experience in our daily lives. We must learn to update our thinking and take responsibility for our choices, which moves us out of victim thinking and victim experiences.

Questions & Answers

Question: Hi Suzanne, I have read your book, Enlightening Cinderella, for the third time now and have learned new lessons again. I study psychology, love Jungian Psychology, and am currently seeing a cognitive behavioral therapist to ensure I can work through issues and avoid passing them on to clients!

My question is about affirmations. My therapist said they are pointless, as they don't change core beliefs. You obviously think they are worthwhile, and I just wanted to know your thought on this before I decide whether or not to begin using them. (I need to believe they will work to motivate myself to use them).

--From Steve Goodier's "Prescription for Peace."      

Most people report that they do not usually feel confident. But exciting things can happen when we actually believe in ourselves. Here is a man who believed in his own ability even as a boy, and that confidence helped shape his adult life. At the turn of the last century, a young boy quit school to help with the family expenses. When he was fifteen, he became interested in automobiles and worked in a garage. He subscribed to a correspondence home study course on automobiles and, after a long day in the garage, studied at the kitchen table by lamplight....

Maybe It's Your Thoughts That Need A Diet

by Barb Garza          

To change your life, you must get rid of old thoughts and be able to accept some new ones. One of the greatest truths is that you create your life with your thoughts. Your thoughts are what make things happen. Thoughts and words have power.

Each thought in your mind is the seed for everything you do, feel, or say. Thoughts are what create our feelings. If you want to feel happy you need to change your thoughts. If you are feeling depressed, angry, jealous or sad you are the one that is causing you to feel that way with your negative thoughts.

Lyrics for Song:
Bless The Broken Road

From Wally       

When your readers are trying to make sense of their lives - all the twists and turns - you have taught that everything, as bizarre or mysterious as it is, has had a purpose.  Everything led them to just where they needed to be.  There is a wonderful song by Rascal Flatts that says it well.  It's talking about finding true love, but it also applies to discovering one's purpose.  Hopefully, looking at life this way will help explain the convoluted, circuitous, broken road that led them to where they are right now... the place where they need to be...
