I grew up in a patriarchal family where my career options were limited as a woman. I loved school so I went to college, but was told by my father that women could not think or do business. I was encouraged to get my Mrs., live in a home with a white picket fence, and be taken care of. None of this made sense to me, but it was what I was supposed to do in this society. Thank goodness I had a rebellious inner child! I became anorexic and bulimic to try to fit in and be accepted as worthy and beautiful. I learned that beauty is not a size and that thin does not equate to happiness. In my early 30’s, I had a huge “Aha Moment.” I was sitting on my bed reading a new script for an aerobics’ program I was teaching when a loud booming voice out of nowhere said, “Let Suzy out!” This woke me up to two realities! It was time to get out of a marriage that was not working, and it was time to reflect on who Suzy was underneath all of the roles I was playing. I was a sister, a daughter, a wife, a mother, a friend, a lover, and a business woman, but who was the authentic Suzy underneath all of these roles? Who wanted to show up in the world to be seen and to be heard?
In my journey to discover my authentic self, I divorced twice. I found my soul mate in my third marriage. Each marriage helped me discover more about me, who I am despite who the world wants me to be, what my gift is that gives me purpose and passion, and what I will accept and not accept in my life. I now show up grounded, authentic, transparent, and confident. My creativity flows freely, I attract who and what I need into my life, and I am more energized at the end of my day because I live what brings me joy. I sizzzl.
