About Debora:
[image width=”125″ height=”140″ frame=”simple” align=”right”]http://www.startsateight.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/debcotysm-2.jpg[/image] Debora M. Coty is a humorist, columnist, speaker, writing workshop instructor and award-winning author of over 100 internationally published articles and ten inspirational books. She has also contributed short stories and devotionals to numerous anthologies. Debora’s passion is sharing her offbeat blend of humor and hope, wit and near-wisdom with women of all ages. As a piano teacher for twenty years, she acquired the skill of auditory long-suffering and has helped countless people as an occupational therapist specializing in orthopedics for over three decades. Mother of two grown children, Debora currently lives and loves in central Florida with her husband and desperately wicked pooch, Fenway.

What I Thought:
I love the quote from a twelve year old boy in a family of 13 that Debora talks about. He says, “A little bit of difficulty doesn’t make is hard.” She uses their busy life with 13 children, including one who is severely disabled, to demonstrate that you can be busy and still be loving and organized too!

.

Each brief chapter is designated its own theme, such as Health Awareness, Finding Balance, Worry, Family Organization, Nurturing Girlfriends, Courage, Trust, and so much more!  In each chapter Debora offers up a relatable story with some humor and advice.

.

Stress is currently my middle name so this was the perfect quick read for me!  One of my favorites of hers was when she suggested that you add yourself to your own “to-do” list!  I chuckle just thinking about it!  She suggests giving yourself 15 minutes twice a day to revive, regroup, and regenerate.  A practical idea, and an ironic way to do it!
