How to Fall in Love with Yourself and the Life You Already Have


Susan Cross, author of The Power of Disruption, says don’t wait for a life-changing event to discover what you value most.

When we think of love, our thoughts usually turn to love as it relates to the people we care about. But as the song goes, the greatest love of all is really the love we have for ourselves. Paradoxically, it is difficult to achieve

Susan Cross, the author of the new book The Power of Disruption: A Memoir of Discovery, says that people who possess a high degree of self-love are more appreciative of their lives, more service-minded, happier and less stressed out than folks who don’t. “We’re taught to present ourselves the way we think others want to see us … to fit in,” Cross observes. “And we can lose ourselves in the process until something happens to bring that point home.”

For Cross that moment occurred two years ago while on a hiking and snorkeling vacation with her husband to the remote Caribbean island of Dominica. Days before they were scheduled to fly home, her appendix ruptured, and she almost died. After emergency surgery on the island and extended healing at home, Cross decided to use her traumatic experience to create a life that matters—and help others do the same.

“I’m on a mission now to help people who struggle with self-doubt, negative personal energy, and questions about the direction of their lives to realize their own self-worth,” she says.

In an interview she can explain:

  • That we already possess what we need to live the life we were meant to
  • We matter just the way we are
  • How to trust that life has your back even in the scary and bad moments
  • The importance of being in the present and not solely focused on the future
  • Five habits to tap into your best self and get through life’s chaotic moments

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
