Spread your wings and fly in the direction of your dreams

When your soul tells you that it is time for you to change, to let go of limiting beliefs and move your life forward in a new direction, some of those around you may not be as supportive as you had hoped. They may even attempt to hold you back.

Caught up in their fear of losing you, of things changing for them as a result of your personal evolution, they may (consciously or unconsciously) try their hardest to keep you locked into the old ...

Dig deep for those golden nuggets

Posted by info@suzigarrod.com on February 18, 2018 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (105)

No matter what difficulties life throws up, I always look for the reason behind it and then embrace the learning. I actively seek the light rather than dwell within the shadow. I look for those golden nuggets of potential unfolding, seek the hidden meanings and welcome the possibility of new beginnings. Last night my mind came up with a novel, albeit rather graphic, way of explaining this approach to life. I'd like to share it with you in the hope that it inspires some people t...

Today, I roar.

So, today marks the last day of our year of firsts.

On this day last year, 6th February 2017, we held our Final Farewell to mum at Torquay Crematorium. The day before that, 5th February 2017, we held the most amazing celebration of her life at Dartington Hall. Today my family and I enter a new phase in our grief; we enter the year of seconds.

I have found that this second year is considered by so...

On this day last year, 15th January 2017, my beautiful mama crossed over the threshold.

Today, after a year of painful firsts, rather than choosing to focus on the sadness of her death, I am choosing to focus on the joy of her life.


I remember with joy and gratitude, the love and the light she brought into our lives; the love she shared and the love she inspired.

6 months ago today, my mum died.

She took her final, gentle breath in this life at 5.20am on Sunday 15th January. I held her hand as she slipped away, kissed her lips, stroked her cheek and sang her favourite lullaby one last time.

Today, at 5.20am on Saturday 15th July, I sat in quiet reflection; silently honouring her love and her life, shedding the tears of a daughter who misses her mum; whilst watching the dawn of yet ...

My first Mothers' Day without her

Posted by info@suzigarrod.com on March 27, 2017 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

It's always the firsts that are hardest to deal with after a bereavement; the first night, first week, first month; first birthday, first anniversary - the list seems endless. There's no hiding from it; the firsts in bereavement always hurt. It's only been 2 months since mum died, so this is my first Mothers' Day without her.

Every day in the week leading up to it, I was confronted by Happy Mothers' Day cards. They seeme...
