Sharpen Your Memory

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to drop by today to tell you about a new radio series that is being broadcast on radio 4, called Sharpen Your Memory, which started on Saturday 22nd July. The first episode was based on the link between our memory and our identity.
To find out more go to: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/memory. You can also use this link to listen live to the broadcasts.

The series of programmes, hosted by Mariella Frostrup and Dr Mark Porter, began by looking in depth at how our memory defines who we are, plus some hard hitting research about why when we shut out painful experiences in our lives we then suffer from depression. There were several high profile guests, including writer Louise Doughty and the film director Rupert Murray who shared their experiences and views.

If you are based in the US, or in the UK and missed the beginning of the series, don’t despair, you can visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/memory/listenagain/ and scroll down to the Sharpen Your Memory series. You will then be able to listen to the episodes a few days after they have originally aired in the UK.

If you are in the UK, the next episode is due to air on Wednesday morning (2nd August) at 9am GMT and repeated at 9pm GMT.


It is set to be a good series. Well worth a listen.

Life's Journey

Self development has long been an interest of mine, but recently I decided to look deeper into its possibilities. That is why I am now studying the Sedona method (www.sedona-method.us and www.freesedonacd.com) in order to reach my full potential.

It was while I was discussing this course with a friend of mine, Karl Moore, that he made a remark that got me thinking. He said, ‘there's really no such thing as a course on self-development. Everyone finds their own path, their own way.’

Surely, we are placed upon this path at birth? Many of us deviate from it during our lifetime and gradually become increasingly lost until we cannot find our original path. I then began to think of the path as a long, straight road with many turns and forks, leading from one place to another; after all life is just that, a journey from birth to death. Gradually, over the years we become disillusioned with the vastness of the road and get tempted to wander down the side roads of marriage, kids, work and study and slowly get bogged down by life. It is usually when we reach a milestone in our life, such as our thirties or forties, that we start to look back towards the main path and long for more. We start to realise that there is still a lot that we want to do and aim for before we get too old. Regret sets in as does resentment towards people that have tempted us from our original path.

This is where self development steps in. We can learn to let go of those hostile feelings and regain control of our lives. We can be who we want to be, the only thing holding us back is ourselves, not our circumstances. As I said before, I am studying that Sedona method. Why? Because I too am approaching the milestone that I spoke of earlier– my forties. In a couple of years I will have reached a time in my life where I want to be where I always dreamed I would be when I was younger; self-sufficient, successful, happy and free of emotional baggage. I have strayed from the path many times before I found my way back, and now although I am already well on my way with that journey, like everybody else, I still yearn for more.

Just a bit of food for thought.

Hi everyone!

I’m finally recovered and have also recently completed a successful move from the Midlands to rural Wales, which was hectic to say the least. However, I now have a brand new shiny home office and am ready to jump back into the hot seat.

I hope to post many blogs over the next few months as I have been offered the opportunity to study the Sedona self development course, which you can find at www.freesedonacd.com. I’m looking forward to learning the techniques to success and self enlightenment and sharing with you my journey on the most powerful self-improvement technique available today.

If any of you have a story to share, a view on any self-development technique, or you simply have a suggestion for a topic that you would like to me to cover, then please don’t hesitate in contacting me on SuzieUK @ googlemail.com and share your thoughts.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Until next time, take care.

Suzie
