Wisdom from Suzanne O’Brien

Wisdom from Suzanne O’Brien

Ever wish you hadn’t made that choice “back then”, or that you had taken a different path in life? Why? Don’t you know who you are and who you are from? You are a part of the Creator of all that is.

Enjoy every day and every one! In fact why not just enjoy every experience that comes our way. The ultimate destination is the same for all of us, to return “home,” so you might as well enjoy all of your time here.

Think of it this way: have you ever gotten ready to drive to a location that you have never been to before? Even though you take directions with you, you wind up getting lost along the way. And that’s exactly how you feel for a while, lost. You spend this time in a state of panic, instead of trusting that it is all happening perhaps for reasons that you may just not be able to see right now. Then you somehow wind up where you wanted to go despite the “detour.”

Maybe if you hadn’t gotten “lost” you would have gotten stuck in traffic or worse, an accident. Or maybe, if you had stopped for directions, it was because you needed to meet that person for some future reason. There can be any number of reasons.

So, why did you waste all of that time panicking? When you are truly meant to be somewhere, you will get there eventually. The question to ask yourself is, wouldn’t it be easier to just enjoy the entire trip knowing that it is all leading you to the path meant just for you? Like the saying goes, “let go and let God”….Continue reading at

Humans are a remarkably short-sighted species. If we had more foresight, then we would not hound ourselves so harshly with hindsight.

Hi Juliet D, I'm Suzanne author of this article. It was never meant to be offensive, but rather hopeful. I am a brain tumor survivor. They got most of the tumor out. Reason I'm am presently not able to fully smile. I've learned to see the good in all I experience, even though there may be times it seems very difficult. While going through my ordeal of course it seemed dark and scary, but since I have to say I'm in a much better and happier place than I was before the tumor. I know first hand life can seem very difficult and disappointing, but with a hopeful and optimistic outlook it's much easier to appreciate it all.

JULIET - I'm sorry to hear you or someone you know may be going through hard times, I've been through my own and although it's sometimes impossible to see any "good" from it, I have been able to appreciate the new me that emerged afterwards (sometimes not realizing it til years later). Life is like a rollercoaster, full of ups & downs, and I promise you it will go up again :-) Also, I am in the midst of reading the author's recent book (and I've met her) and she has been through tremendous hardship, near death if I may say that here... this particular article may be short & sweet but she's not just a floofy "everything's roses & rainbows" kind of person. She does, however, try to spend as much of her time happy as possible and help others do the same. Perhaps it is because she has been through a lot that she can try to milk all the positivity possible out of life (maybe I'm wrong but that's why I'm an almost-always-happy person: because I've been through hardships). I sincerely wish you the best and that peace and happiness come to you very soon, even if for small moments at a time for now :-)
