I am looking for life/business coaches, holistic practitioners, and others interested in being part of Achieving Life website and the Achieving Life Expos.

To know any someone takes more than just reading a few lines, a brief conversation, or a momentary glimpse. Every person is unique and intricate, every moment we are different from the previous - evoloving and growing. We can have good ideas about a person relatively easily - but to know is an intimacy very few are willing to go for, as it is a two-sided endeavor that requires balance & being open.


In life I seek out and explore ideas, places, experiences and people. I look for the best in people and hope that they find those parts of themselves. One can only share what they experience and one always chooses the interpretations of their experiences.
One can always have more friends, more adventures, and both receive and share more love!! And while I can not require, can not control, I can only ask and truly only offer to be there, and see that you are as well.

It doesn't matter the rocky points, the falls, the bends we do not want, that we have taken, that may lie ahead- there is always beauty in the world around us and the ability for events and our perspectives to improve!


..The 4 L's..

Live life to its fullest - never let a moment pass you by, you dont know just what might really be there
Love every moment - anger and depression take tooo much energy, let love forgive and flow freely.
Laugh - it heals the heart, mind, body, and soul making the good times great the bad times good, and brings a smile.
Learn - the more you learn the more you live, love, and laugh.





Why get stuck in life, stuck in some moment of contentment when YOU KNOW there is so much more available to you, so much that YOU CAN do with what you already have? Choose to start achieving at life - to actualizing your dreams, your beliefs, your knowledge.


I am a student of life. There have been many ups and many downs. At times it has been easy to let go of the flow of life and try to stay in one place, to get snarled up in a beavers damn. Over and over I keep learning/discovering that life is not meant to be held up it is meant to flow to be in a state of action a state of achieving. I learned that one must embrace trust, faith, and love... that we do not have control over everything we do have our perceptions and actions, which is in many ways everything. I learned that discipline is empowering, questioning a power often misused, and that fears can be motivators.

I an not on your exact path, and will not simply give you the exact answers that will solve all of your problems, but I am sure that you do know them and that you have the resources already to start on that journey!! I know that life can be trusted, I am certain that we shape our worlds through our perceptions, actions, and reactions.. that by operating through love, peace, humility, with purpose we can understand our motivators (and immobilizers) and move to achieving our greatest dreams and being able to help others find theirs.

Take a look at the blogs that will be placed here - some are inspirational, some facing those challenges we face in daily life, some ask questions, some about personal struggles, and some are bits of poetry or musings about anything and everything. I get into writing bits where I just keep writing and other times where I will go weeks, even months, without writing anything. I will be reposting things from older blogs here and on my old profile as part of consolidating as well so if you read it before know there will be new stuff - hehe!!


Lady Liadin, PubWench, GypsyDeb, and both Deb and Debbie are the names I go by. They each are part of who I am and what I enjoy doing in life.


I have been active with the Bay Area Renaissance Festival since it started at MOSI in Tampa - with visits on occasion to it when it was in Largo.

These are two of the best pubs along with Seahorse at the Faire hehe. I have worked at the above two as PubWench but am known to often just decide to be a playtron and get to see all the great shows and have fun with friends!!
I have gotten to travel and go to the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in California and have hopes to visit other faires around the county. 



USF Religious Studies Club
I was a graduate student at USF and working on a MA in Religious Studies or either to Publich Health or Rehabilitation & Counseling. Sadly lack of financial aide and $$ has put these areas on hold. Classes in entrepreneurship, philosophy, environmental science/policy, & countless others have intrigued and kept my mind going -- going where I wonder sometimes!!




I have lived in or around the TampaBay area for some 20yrs and was born here. I spent about 9yrs growing up in the mountains of NC and they are a favorite place to regularly visit!!


My friends are very important to me in so many ways and I love each one dearly. Those who I bring into my life I will be there for in any way I can and so long as they invite/allow. I look for the absolute best in people and life. I like to help people see what makes them so special and let my friends and those I love know often that I do find them to be special and that I appreciate them in my life.
