Over the past three years, Suzy embarked on an interesting personal and professional journey in hope of discovering her inner peace, she even wrote a book ‘The Big Peace’ to aid others setting out on similar endeavors.
Scientists say that we can improve our ‘set point’ of happiness but sadly it’s often a difficult task. Suzy describes her inward journey as one that made her question certain corner stones in her life and ultimately made her leave her husband. Obviously this is not a message for everyone to up and leave their partners but the point she is trying to make is that inner peace comes from living a brave life and not a fearful one.
When we act bravely we do things we think we cannot do and this enables us to achieve our inner peace. Bravery is different for everyone and it takes some people far more bravery to identify what is wrong in a relationship and to take the steps to change it.
We may not realise at first but many of us live in fear of situations that we encounter on a daily basis. Sometimes we avoid facing a problem and procrastinate and tolerate things we don’t want and this is what creates anxiety.
Suzy is trying to communicate that when we take a leap of faith and make a difficult but right decision, no matter how daunting it may seem at first, life will open up and you will feel fulfilled again as apposed to dissatisfied and unhappy.
