My motivation to coach, write, blog and facebook, is to present ideas about the world and issues and events within it, and to assist where I can in inspiring others to be all they can be and to reveal their purpose in this world. I hope to provide some nourishment for the heart, mind and soul.

Despite intolerance of all kinds around us I believe we are all One, that Love and Light underlie our humanity, and when we can understand and open to it, we will cease harming each other and our planet.

For most of us it takes most of our lives to figure it out, and each day is another step up the mountain.

I have a Facebook page – Sue Fitzmaurice, Author.

I have a novel Angels in the Architecture which you can read about on this blog here and you can purchase on Amazon here.

A second novel is underway – In the Company of Angels – about the Scottish wars, their protagonists and the women who survived them; as well as a series of other books on the drawing board.

I participate in social networking projects with many friends around the world, and find the greatest solace and friendship among these many amazing men and women. I have several online courses and groups – see the menu items above.

I have a varied corporate leadership background; an overview of my resume is online here.  I have been a nurse, business owner, management consultant and CEO; I’ve a lifetime’s interest in international politics, philosophy, the quantum and all religions; and I have degrees in philosophy, international relations and business.

I have a teenage son and daughter and I live on the beautiful Kapiti Coast, north of Wellington, New Zealand.

If anything I might write here or elsewhere gives you pause for thought, an opportunity to laugh, reflect or even love those about you more, then I am exceedingly happy.

to find this site on an Easter day must be ..

a tube so i can breathe..
a drop of liquid to drench my thirst..

and a dint of light to give me a casted shadow..

so i can myself that my “Being” is still around…

I found you today through a posting on FB. I so needed to hear some of your postings. Especially the one “I do it for the Joy it brings”. Today my heart is breaking over a daughter of mine with whom I have such a difficult relationship. I realize that although she brings me joy sometimes, at times she breaks my heart. So today I realized the reason I make artistic jewelry isn’t for the money or for glamour but for the joy it brings me to create something with my hands in which I feel competent. When I am creating, my soul transcends all the every day minuitia and I feel great joy. Thank you for your blog

Sue FitzmauriceApril 11, 2013 at 2:21 amReply

Hi Maureen – oh I hear so often that people are estranged or challenged by their closest relationships – it’s so hard – my heart goes to you and I’m sure the way to re-create your relationship with your daughter will appear. xoxo

Hi Maureen – I just wanted you to know that you are not alone in the excruciating pain felt by having a difficult and heartbreaking relationship with a daughter you love so very much. We are sent these beautiful little spirits to love and nourish, and sometimes it feels like someone else, another mother, would have better been able to bring out the best in those little spirits. You have found your own therapy, which gives you joy and brings you good health. <3 Dana <3

Your blog post caught my eye and my heart as I read about the difficult relationship with your daughter. I have a difficult relationship with a son and yes, he can bring me such joy but he also brings me much pain and sorrow and breaks my heart. I am still working through how to deal with this for my own soul and heart and of course his. I am typically a joyful person, but this relationship can drop me into despair. I am still looking for something that I can turn to for that joyful awareness in such times of sadness. Perhaps taking the course Living a Life of Purpose will help. I am also thinking of trying these new adult coloring books. Or maybe it’s cooking or maybe its walking. I must continue to try to find that which will provide me joyful relief as you have found. Thank you for sharing. Blessings…Sheryl

A friend suggested that I contact u to learn about setting up workshops online. I’m a therapist in Santa Cruz, Ca looking to reach more people online.

Sue FitzmauriceApril 25, 2013 at 3:24 amReply

Hi Barbara – in about 24 hours I will have my “How to Grow your Facebook page” course up and running – that will give you a load of information about reaching more people. You will be able to connect to that directly via this website under ‘e-courses’ – it “looks” like it’s ready right now, but it’s not quite… Happy to work directly with you too – best way to contact me is via message on my personal Facebook page at fb/suefitzmaurice xo

What a joy to read your words and dip my toe into your creative world! As an aspiring author completing my memoir (and recovering from the ass-kicking process it’s been thus far), I am inspired beyond words. A funny thing for a writer eh?
I look forward to following your work.
With a grateful heart,

Hi Sue,
I met you several years ago when you were a “CEO”. By chance today I came across your work…so nice to see what you are doing now. Your messages are uplifting and enlightening. Lovely to see you looking so well and congratulations on your success.

Sue FitzmauriceFebruary 23, 2014 at 9:47 amReply

Hi Yvonne – nice to hear from you! I have this idea that you’re in the Waikato… am I right? Thanks for your lovely message. xo

Sue even though my childhood was very difficult , I truly believe with all my heart that everything in life happens for a reason! the bad along with the good , I have been touched by the hand of God on more than one occasion, and have always desired spiritual growth . God has truly blessed me in many ways, but this past 15 years and more than 10 surgeries later has taken its toll on me, leaving me with the saying that life is a bitch and then you die! and believing that as well. after my last surgery and spending 23 days in the hospital I found myself feeling completely lost and broken. In a desperate attempt to find myself I adopted a lab from a rescue shelter and named her Journey! it has taken me a year and much soul searching too pick myself up and gain the courage to start making positive changes in my life ! I have quit smoking ,I am eating healthy, exercising and loosing weight and I am happier than I have felt for many years. I do not know how I ended up on your web page but found myself inspired, Thank you! I can not take your course right now but will be looking forward too doing so in the near future. funny how naming my dog Journey was the beginning of mine!

Sue FitzmauriceMay 2, 2014 at 10:06 amReply

Hi Joanne – wow, it’s so lovely to meet you and thank you for telling me a little of your journey, and about ‘Journey’. I live with a black lab also and she is one of the hearts of our home. Bravo! on stepping into LIFE – wow! I know what a challenge it can be sometimes. Congratulations. I’m sure there must be yet more for you – there is a reason we are called to step up, and I’m sure you must have much to offer others. xo

Sue FitzmauriceJune 21, 2014 at 6:46 amReply

Hi Laureen – wow, so many! I’ve always been a big fan of Doris Lessing, Margaret Atwood, Jose Garcia Marquez… My favourite novel of all-time is “The Bone People” by Kerri Hulme. xo

Wow, I have never, in all these years, met anyone else for whom that is their favorite book too!! Amazing. It stays with me even today. Love love loved that book. If it’s your fav too, then I’m off to buy your book, as we clearly have a lot in common and I’m sure I’ll love that too :)

So excited to have found you and this course. Blessings….Sheryl
