Hi! I’m Susie, the creator of Susiebloom.
I was born in the USA and have lived most of my life on the central coast of California. I love life and this amazing, beautiful world. I love to sing, write, create and take pictures…lots and lots of pictures. I love music and dancing, movies, theater, hiking, good books, game nights, porch swings, road trips, old pick-up trucks, and ’68 Camaros. I relish new experiences and hope to travel the world. I love spending time with family and friends but cherish alone time, too. I enjoy helping others, never want to stop learning and hold myself to high standards. My faith in God and my desire to live the teachings of Jesus Christ has shaped my existence and brought me tremendous peace, joy, strength and inspiration. I love all things that motivate goodness, growth and blooming.
I’ve always been a happy gal, looking at the brighter side of life and trying to help others do the same. When I began my blog in 2013 I simply wanted to spread a little sunshine on line, but my purpose evolves a little every day. Blooming is a life-long process; a journey of growth and change, and even though change can be uncomfortable, it’s the only way we can reach our greatest potential and enjoy life to the fullest.
“It’s vital to be GROWING through your life
rather than going through your life.”
I want to GROW THROUGH LIFE and I hope to encourage others to do the same by sharing positive bits of wisdom, organizational assistance and coaching, beautiful photography, uplifting music, and quirky art that motivates you. I’ve found that I grow best when I strive to be HEALTHY, HELPFUL and ORGANIZED. When I’m healthy I feel balance. When I’m helpful I feel happy. When I’m organized I feel peace.
To Be HEALTHY requires attention and commitment to Spirit, Mind and Body. I thrive in every way when I maintain a close connection to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through faith, prayer and study of the scriptures. Life is still challenging but those positive, spiritual relationships foster optimism and wisdom which motivate vigor and overall good health. It’s true! I’ve put it to the test! It’s a circle of wellness worth working on. It’s never too late, either. You can begin from right where you’re at and bloom as you grow.
To Be HELPFUL takes so little and yields so much. We’re at our best when we serve and love one another. I agree with Abraham Lincoln, “When I do good I feel good.” Good deeds, big and small, are always worth doing. Share goodness…
To Be ORGANIZED is key. “Outer order contributes to inner calm“, Gretchen Rubin observed. Peace comes when we clear the clutter from our lives, figuratively and literally. Simplify…
“Everyone can find a way to keep changing for the better-to keep growing and flourishing.”
