Over the years I have been asked many times, “How do you do it?”  To those posing that question, I would ask  back, “How do I do what?” They would reply, “How do you do all that you do?”  Then they would start to rattle off some of the businesses and activities that I’m currently [...]

It’s not about how often you fall- it’s about what you do when you fall, and how quickly you get back up to [...]

Dare to be Dino!

Posted on February 7, 2010 by debbrasweet

One of the things I have done since I was very young  is people watching.  I ponder over how people act, what they think, why they think it, what motivates them to do what they do, and I wonder about what they feel deep down inside. Are they truly happy? What makes some people have [...]

I’ve talked about this before, and it seems like I am speaking about it even more. Every day we have a choice to intentionally be involved in our life.  For some, that may sound silly, odd or off the wall. For others, they will ‘get it’. To some who are getting to know me, as [...]
