One of my favorite entries in the book is actually one by her husband who writes that when he makes a business deal his goal is that everyone involved feels like they have won the lottery. I love that attitude to go into each and every business deal with.
And chapter 20 entitled "Knockout"... let's just say that chapter will scare the you know what out of you. Read it. Educate yourself.
Great book! I appreciate Suzanne's honesty. You can hear her voice as you read the book. I highly recommended picking up a copy of this!
From the days of Three's Company to now I have followed her career. She is brilliant! She is talented! She is courageous!

Seventeen years ago I started Life Enlightenment. Wow! I can't believe it has been that long. Each year things continue to evolve - in one way or another. Many of my clients have been with me since the beginning or close to it.
In the past year, I have felt a yearning to focus my energies in some new ways while continuing to offer some of the same services in my always highest manner.
What I celebrate today is the freedom to be have been able to run my own business for this long.
And grateful for all the support I have had along the way.

The New Year is here.
I haven't felt like I've been shining as you know from previous posts.
One of the thoughtful gifts I received over the holiday season was from my Young Living mentor, Becky. She formulated this wonderful (see picture) perfume in honor of mutual friend who passed away and included with this was the dearest note and two motivational books. The perfume is called "Diamond Dust" after Elizabeth Diamond. Becky posted to me "wear it and shine". And that I will do.
It is really important who you surround yourself with. And my Young Living family has been such a blessing to me in so many ways. Grateful!
I will make them proud of me this year.

And I read things about gratitude, positive thinking, and all that jazz. Stuff I really do believe in. But sometimes you also get tired of the gratitude, positive thinking, and all that jazz... and cry. It is December 18, we have no tree, no decorations up. And every year my husband gets so excited over the oodles and oodles of gifts I have wrapped for him under the tree. But this year so far there are just a few small things of which I have bought for him mainly from doing extra side jobs like online surveys. It pains me more than I can put into words to disappoint him. Tomorrow I shop for Hennessy's Christmas gifts thanks to PetCo and the $40 in Pal Rewards they were so kind to gift to me due to a shipping and technical mix up on her last food order.
I want things a certain way.
And just don't see them being that way this year.
My sister, aunt, and several friends have mailed gifts to Jim, Hennessy, and me already - and this year I do not know when I will be able to gift them in the way I would like. Even mailing cards to clients, friends, and family seems unlikely this year.
I want to be the powerful all mighty positive grateful force to be reconded with, but at the moment of writing this blog tonight I would not be honest with any of you if I preached that stuff when I am not feeling it.
Less than a week til Christmas.
We'll see what the week brings.
In the meantime, I want to end this wallowing post on a few notes of gratitude.
I am grateful to have the bestest smartest cutest dog in the entire universe as my dogauter.
I am grateful for a husband who gets me and still loves me. He is the greatest husband in the entire universe.
I am grateful for Starbucks hot chocolates (made vegan with almondmilk of course).
I am grateful for Yogaglo.
I am grateful for Young Living Essential Oils.
I am grateful for LA Kings hockey (and tonight's win).
Happy New Moon!

A bit sarcastic.
Hennessy is my fur kid so every year since our first together in 2006 we have gone to see Santa wherever he is taking holiday photos with dogs. She's never been overly fond of the big red furry man, but she is always a good sport for me. And in thinking about it yesterday it amused me to think when I have her do things with me like photos with Santa, the LA Kings Ice Crew, selfies, etc - those things just do not matter to her. It really is something to contemplate - the example and life lessons from Hennessy are significant - and she is never wrong!
