Her writing career began at just 10 years old when she was paid to help write letters to clients for a family member’s business.

Original, authentic and powerful are not just a cute, catchy phrase. They are the central values upon which Lori Anne strives to live. They demand openness, vulnerability, and courage, and her writing reflects these values along with an occasional bit of sarcasm and saltiness for flavor.

Chapter 1:

Who am I?

The 3 things you absolutely must have in order to answer the questions you’re asking.

Lauren was 27 when life took an unexpected turn. Her marriage was falling apart already, and then she
was laid off from her job. It wouldn’t have been quite so bad if she only had herself to worry about, but she also had two young children to clothe, feed and take care of. So far, her adult years had gone as her parents had told her they would:  she’d finished college, gotten
married, had children within a couple of years, and found a job that paid the bills. She didn’t mind that she wasn’t excited about going to work each day. She’d bought into the belief that if you just work hard enough long enough,everything else will work itself out.

Well, she’d worked plenty hard, and now she was financially broke and facing divorce.  That wasn’t how it was supposed to work. It
was time to find her own way, but two questions kept coming up:  “Where do I start?” and “How do I know what’s
really right for me?” She didn’t want to make the same mistakes again.

Life is far morefragile than we care to admit sometimes. We can be going along thinking everything is exactly the way it should be. Then one day… poof… a whole new reality plants itself in the middle of our carefully laid plans and we are left with questions, but no answers.
Maybe you’re like Lauren. Maybe you’re experiencing the end of something you’ve assumed would always be there for you, like the break up of a marriage or the sudden end to what you thought would be a life-long career. What is the foundation upon which you begin again?

Or maybe it’s a seemingly average, ordinary occurrence that has you stuck in a moral dilemma, like having to stand up for something you believe in against the tide of everyone else’s opinions or having to choose between the dream of world-travel you’ve planned for more than 10 years and the most fulfilling relationship you’ve ever experienced. How do you knowwhat the “right” choice is for you?
Or maybe it’s even moresubtle. Maybe there is no one thing you can point to, but a growing sense of something “not right” in your life; something missing; a desire for something “more” that you can’t articulate or explain. You know you don’t want to stay
where you are, but you don’t know where you want to go either. On what do you base your choices in order to move forward?

When having to make tough choices, like which job to take or which city to move to, we are often given the advice to make a list of all the pros and cons for each option. This is supposed to give us a clear idea of what we’re really thinking and provide
us an easy way to decide. But these choices assume that we already know who we are, and it’s just a matter of what step to take next.
But what do you do if the questions you’re having are fundamentally asking, “Who am I?” The next step can’t be looked at until we know who we are, because if we decide we are one person, we may choose to go to Boston for a fresh start. If we decide we are
someone else, taking that world trip may be more fulfilling.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could articulate a list of some kind that outlined who we are and allowed usto look at a decision and say without a doubt, “Yes, this is the right and best choice for me” or “No, I can’t do this because it’s not who I am” – no matter what the pros and cons might look like? What if we could build a list that was unique to ourselves, that honored who we are, and that guided
even the most difficult choices and situations in our lives? What might we need in order to do that? First, we’d need a way to articulate it. We’d need a language we could use and understand. We would need one that could be both specific and general, allowing us room to refine our understanding of it as we learned more about it.
