The Journey Continues…

Well… here I am today.  Finally I can take a deep breath and smile 🙂 I am done with the final editing of my book, just waiting for a few more endorsements and it’s ready to go to the publisher.   Life is truly full of surprises with its twists and turns, highs and lows, and mountains and valleys.  Sometimes, in the midst of an ordinary life, a curveball is thrown your way that takes your breath away and knocks you off your feet.  The outcome of your life will be determined by how you respond to that curveball.

I have learned that it’s possible to go through the mountains and valleys of life, and the curveballs can become blessings in disguise.  I look back at my life for the last few years and I could say that I have come a long way.  I am happier now and having the time of my life.  My first attorney asked me to write my life story for the deposition of my divorce, which became the outline for this book.  I had to go through some hurdles to finish the book.  .  It was hard to write when you have to relive the events in your life that you do not want to remember, but with God’s grace, I was able to finish it.

Here is the little taste of what the book is all about 🙂

“I found myself captivated by Susy’s true life, fairytale love story that began at such a young age.  Her unique style of writing will draw you into her story, as if you are reliving each moment with her.  Every girl dreams of finding the man who will sweep her off of her feet and marry her.  Then they are supposed to live happily ever after…but many times people change and divorce happens.  Since 2006, I have had the privilege of working with Susy professionally in real estate and as a volunteer in conference ministry.  I have witnessed firsthand many of the ups and downs as they happened in Susy’s life.  Her journey through divorce has changed her in many ways…for the better.  She is a happier, stronger, and more self-confident woman and I am so proud of her accomplishments.  There is nothing fake about Susy; she is very real and truly loves the Lord with all of her heart.  Her life story gives hope and inspiration to anyone going through a life-changing event.  I have never met anyone like Susy and I am so thankful to be able to call her my close friend”. – Rhonda Anderson.

So 🙂  stay tuned and I will let you know when the book is available 🙂

True Love

We are born to Love and be loved – Susy Pujiro

When I hear the words “True Love”, I always think of an old couple walking hand in hand and still have eyes for each other who has weathered the seasons of their lives and still together no matter what.. that’s what I think of true love is.

To me, true love is having a soul mate, confidant, best friend and lover. Someone to love and to hold.  Someone who I am in love with and he is in love with me.  We both can’t be away from each other more than 5 minutes without missing each other. When I think of him, I have butterflies in my stomach and just a thought of him will make me smile, he will know what’s on my mind without me saying a word.  He makes me laugh. He will look at me with such an adoration in his eyes that love just exudes from his eyes that just melts my heart.  He holds me  when we sleep no matter what the temperature is outside.  Even though, he is across the room but I know that he never lets his eyes off me.  Someone who thinks I am worth all the risk he is taking just to be with me.  When I have a bad day, just being in his arms makes me feel safe and I know I will be okay.

Love is simple yet complicated.  Sometimes, you don’t know how love is going to turn.  You can’t force love because  you just fall in love. Love has to be felt with the heart. Love is like the wind, you don’t know when it comes but you can feel it touching you. That’s why when you kiss, you close your eyes because you are feeling it with your heart. You close your eyes when you  cry, because your heart hurts so much that you can’t bear the pain.

You fall in love and you feel you are on top of the world and hoping the love you feel will last into eternity.  Suddenly for no reason, love dies, you break up and your heart is broken.  It hurts so much that you don’t think you can live another day.  Yet, as the day goes with each tear you shed, you feel a bit better and you can survive another hour and as it is said, time is a healer.. yes time is a healer but the scars are still there and sometimes when the scars are not truly healed.. you still feel the pain now and then.

Because of the pain and the broken heart,  you are afraid to love again.  If you do that, you will be missing love.  Love is worth taking the risk to be hurt and got your heart broken, because love is meant to be experienced. We are born to love and be loved. I have been in love, broken hearted and yet I am not afraid to risk being hurt and broken hearted to be with someone I love and experience love again rather not at all.  When you cry because of love, you know you are human and able to love and give.

Sometimes you never know how much you love a person until you let her/him go and you realize you make a mistake of letting go.  So, if you find your true love, hold on to her/him and don’t take them for granted and give God thanks for giving you someone to love and to hold.   Sometimes the best thing in life only happens once and if you are lucky, you will have a second chance.

Through my journey of love, I find there is one true love and that is God’s love that is everlasting and unconditional.  He loves me for who I am with every flaw I have.  He doesn’t judge me.  Because of His love, He even gave His life for me so He could save me.  Now that I have experienced His love and goodness, I will not want to live my life without Him.

Jesus…. Don’t leave earth without Him.
