When you wake up you think “It’s just all too much!” 

You roll over and go back to sleep.

And then when you wake up again it’s still there.

The feeling of overwhelm has NOT gone away.

That was me the other day.

I did decide to do my normal 5 AM morning routine, which had suffered a bit over the holiday period.🏖

Today I thought, meditate first, which I did, but still, the analytical brain was full-on. 🧠

“How am I going to grow this online business of ours as we planned?” 

“How am I going to fit in everything I have planned for my other, business-related projects?”

This was to be the year to give up HOW and flow!

Then I draw the Heart Whisper card for the day – asking what is it I will share today.

Expect Miracles was the card I drew,  with the message:

Magic happens when you take time to sit in stillness and listen. Click To Tweet

And the heart whisper wisdom I heard was:

Today take time to be still and reflect on the future you for 2020. Click To Tweet


I was not doing well with the sitting still part: I decided to do a walking meditation.👣

So I head out, start walking, and through the earphone, I hear that the battery in my phone is flat!


Not going so well up till then.

I’m happy to say things were about to improve.

As planned, we head for the beach.🏖

The beach is where I get clarity and get inspired – Des is my Beach Mentor so I know there will be a solution.

So why the overwhelm?

It started yesterday when I spent a couple of hours of painting.

I enjoyed it so much.

I’ll post more about that later, maybe tomorrow, but for now, I’ll just say I think that triggered a conflict in my mind about which I wanted to spend more time on now, be more focused on now – our affiliate marketing business or my art and Heart Whisper Mentoring and Oracle Card business.

So back to this morning on the beach and Des is asking me about my overwhelm. I do my best to explain and he asks me how long I was painting for yesterday.

I had no idea.

You were in the zone, he said.

That’s a surefire sign you are doing something you truly love.💜

Why he asks, don’t I focus mainly on my art and Heart Whisper business and he will take primary responsibility for the affiliate marketing business, hopefully with some backup support from me.


What about other intentions and commitments we’ve made?

That can all be handled, Des says. 😋

This is clearly the way forward if that’s what I really want to do.✈️

And I do.


Made my heart sing.💓

Tomorrow I’ll probably jump out of bed as soon as I wake! 

PS I did 

Now I am off to map out the next 90 days and treat myself to one of my Annual Heart Whisper Readings

  1. So right, Suzie! I think you’ll see how my blog this week addresses change, drained energy and excitement for the future saying some of the same things and concept. xoxo

  2. I love your consistent approach to moving into clarity. Often people give up instead of allowing the next right step to come in. Also love the acceptance of support. xoxo

  3. Multi-talented ladies often need to slow down and focus in order to move in the direction that makes their heart sing, Suzie. Thank God you have Des to provide the right guidance and wisdom when required.

    I paused to reflect before the end of the year and decided to let go of a lot of things to create space for what would make my heart sing in 2020.

    1. Vatsala your comment touched my heart, yes we do sometimes need to slow down focus before we can create the shift Love you did this – still on my to do creating space xx00

  4. I love your insights and willingness to receive Des’s suggestion for help! How wonderful you are returning to painting and creativity! Wishing you peace, joy and abundant prosperity in the coming year!

  5. You are always such an inspiration to me, Suzie. Your persistence, patience, and eventual calm and clarity. I don’t live near a beach I can take a walk on, but I can go to a yoga class. I don’t have a Des to provide support (Do they sell those on Amazon?), but I can reach out to others. There IS clearly always a way forward (and that is what I want too!) Thanks for the breath of calm.

    1. Debbie, Your comment lit up my morning, I love your comment about Des and yes I am so blessed
      love that a breath of calm. Am I sensing you have had some overwhelm?

  6. Suzie,

    Go where your heart is. I met you shortly after I came online –in early 2009—and your love for your art has been the constant thing over the years. You’re blessed to have someone like Des who understands this online business world, and understands you. Hope you choose to stay in the zone!

    We all have some type of challenge as I’m struggling with continuing with 1:1 6-month or 12-month coaching packages (and I love seeing the results of coaching) and online marketing or focus on Accountability Coaching and spend a large chunk of my time offline, as in working with local business clients. I can do both but want it to harmonize with my word for 2020 – SIMPLIFY.

  7. Brilliant you Suzie. Love the photos. And maybe something was going on yesterday because I was what I call ‘out of sorts’ and not just for a few minutes. I was out of sorts for a few hours and all my inner efforts didn’t change a thing. So I basically gave myself permission to be out of sorts, stopped feeling badly about it and woke up this morning back to my usual vibrational self.
