It is OK calling this site Blossom with Lily but just who is Lily? Its a long story. In the early days when Susan first went online she was not keen on using her proper name. She wanted to hide behind a pseudonym and Lily made a lot of sense because Susan means lily. These days she has another site called God’s Lily which she uses as the major way of sharing her ideas.
Why leave this site online? Good question! This site is currently home to the Blossom with Lily material from the course that she used to sell. It is here as a sort of taster for those who want to see what she has done in the past. The courses she does now are set up a little differently but they have the same bias and outlook on life. Look through this one and you will see if you can cope with her bias. Seriously, you will see if her way of thinking about the world is close enough to yours for you to want to do things together in the future. If you want to find out more the current courses go to the God’s Lily Training site.
Who is Susan?
Now I have got that out of the way. Here is more info about the real person behind this website. I am a lady who these days lives on the border of England and Wales. I have not always lived here I did spend quite a chunk of my life in the rather less prosperous north east England.
It is surprising how big a difference there is between the two areas. In NE England it is harder to sell a house. It is not unknown for them to be on the market for 2 or 3 years even though prices are a lot lower than in other parts of the country. Town centres seem to be struggling more as what shops are open are the sort that thrive in depressed areas like charity chops and pound shops. I read one report where they said they were pleased that they have reduced the number of empty shop units in a town to 1 in 5.
There are one or two cold spots like that in NE Wales but overall the area is rather more prosperous. However, that does not mean that I have forgotten what it is like to struggle. Those things are etched onto you. The times when you wonder what on earth you are going to eat because you cannot find enough money to buy even a loaf of bread. OK compared to many people these days I had it easy. I always had food in the cupboard and a roof over my head.
One of the things that I learnt from that experience is that one of the biggest determinants of how well you are going to do in life is your character and attitude. You can give two people the same amount of money and depending on their character and attitude after 10 years one can find themselves living in a pig pen and the other in a palace.
You can give someone with one kind of attitude a lot of money and they can squander it in a relatively short time and find themselves in the equivalent of a pig pen. However, someone with a different attitude and approach to life can start with very little money and find themselves surrounded by the trappings of wealth. Money has the power to bring the best or worst out of people.
What is blossoming about?
Blossoming is about becoming the sort of person that you need to be to achieve what you want to achieve in life. Most of us want to be at least comfortable with food to eat and a roof over our heads. OK a bit more so that we can give to others and help those really in need would be even better.
