So to you thinkers out there – what is stopping you? Why do you think and not do? What holds you back? I would say to you not only do you need to believe in yourself, but surround yourself with people who believe in you. It will help you start “doing” that much quicker!

We all know Pinterest now, as it has become a mainstream social sharing site for bookmarking and grouping images together. I’ve seen blog posts. I’ve seen bi-lined articles. I’ve seen infographics.

Having been raised by two collegiate educators, I have always taken an interest in big words. I love to learn them and then subsequently use them in conversation, which typically sparks more conversation. From time-to-time at family gatherings, we play “The Dictionary Game,” which is really Balderdash® without a board or playing pieces. It simply consists of a dictionary and a bunch of scrap paper, some rally zany made up definitions and a lot of laughs. In any event, I love pretty much all word puzzles.
