H ello, darling. I’m so glad you’re here.  I know there’s something you are searching for – and  I want to help you discover it.

Maybe you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by life or torn by needing to fit everything into your schedule.  I can help you. I’m an expert at De-TANGLING!  And, I LOVE doing it.

Think of me as the De-Tangler.  I am like Johnson’s No More Tangles, but for your schedule and your life.

Maybe you’re feeling scattered –  as in that feeling where not only are you not living your life – you are just hanging on by the knuckles to survive. I am here for you,  to hold space for you as you allow yourself to fall apart – and to help you pick up the pieces and reassemble them into something that feels like a life you can thrive in.

When you are scared, I’m here to be your cheerleader.  I know that deep within you there is a well of courage.  You just don’t recognize it.  Or maybe – just maybe – you feel you need permission from someone else to be courageous.  I’ll give you permission to step up in your own life and make it your own.

When you confess to me that you don’t want to live the life you are expected to live, I will understand.  I’ve been there – living a life that I was expected to be living – being the perfect mother and the perfect wife.  When it all fell apart, I began to discover what I really wanted in life and became an explorer and an adventurer.  I learned that outside the lines of polite society’s expectations is an awesome place to live.

I won’t judge you at all – instead I can tell you that I understand.

I will support you in pursuing your dream and breaking out of your shell. Because I see the best you that you can be – even if you are unable to see it in this moment.

So what do you say?  Are you ready to get to work?

Advance Praise:
“Stepping into Debra Smouse’s world is an adventure you don’t want to miss. Her collection of charm-scented and bold essays comes straight from the heart of this “Tarnished Southern belle.” Reading her words is like sitting down with your best friend for a cozy chat and receiving the benefits of a world-class life coach. She’ll kick your sweet little ass into gear and never put on airs or pretend that she may (on occasion) still forget to pull on her own big girl panties. Bright.Thoughtful. Authentic.”
Kayce S. Hughlett, Author of As I Lay Pondering and Blue: a novel
