Change is in the air!

Change is a good thing!

I've been having some challenges with my name....and have been considering a name change for some time but - after being relocated to 3 different hotel rooms this week because there were 3 "Susan Smiths" at the conference...and once again asked if I was the Susan Smith who drowned her children - its official; my new online name will be "Susan Kingsley-Smith".

Hello Michelle! I love the way you describe looking for those things that you CAN change! How empowering! This is where the "power" lies! In knowing what we can change and knowing that we can choose change - or not! The key message I'm getting from your note is that you know and choose to create this change for yourself and in doing so are creating - and living - the life you choose today in spite of the past you had!

You Michelle - are my superhero of the day! Thank you for sharing that message of hope and self empowerment here with us!

BTW - typos are very allowed and expected!

Hugs and loving watching your journey of self discovery!!!

Brilliant. Change is good and this one is definitely a defining one.

Thanks Kristin! It's a bit of a challenge remembering to use the hyphenated name, changing life long patterns takes some effort when trying to create change on purpose!

I'll get used to it and I think it will be helpful all around!
