"Lorihil was awesome!!!" Growing up being raised by a single mother, I had a lot of responsibility on me. At least I took it upon "Thank you so much! Huge fan of your myself. I worked to be mature and quiet, to stay out work." of the way and “rock the boat” as little as possible. I didn’t want to cause my mom even more work and stress. And, I was highly mature and trustworthy. The adults in my life trusted me even as a teenager. I took that trust very seriously. Now, I want to be clear that I love both of my parents very much and have a great relationship with each of them. I am not blaming them in anyway. However, because I took on who I felt I needed to be to make it easier on others, I lost a lot of my true "Rock star writing!" "Lorihil is great. She writes well, has a great 'voice' and is easy to work with." "Lori writes from the heart and had me looking into my life with a renewed thankfulness and true gratitude." On Fiverr: http://fiverr.com/lorihil On Amazon: amazon.com/author/lorihil nature along the way. I turned into a serious quiet person, eventually even taking on depression. For the Love of Personality Those who know me well, know I love personality typing, assessment, brain development, psychology, and all that jazz. I have an AAS in Early Childhood Development and was the nerdy one in my class who loved studying all that “personality stuff.” It fascinates me. I have completed different personality and temperament assessments over the years including MyersBriggs and even the Arno Clinical Profile. Though I have learned a ton about myself, and let go of the need to be everything for everyone, I still felt it wasn’t quite right. Then something happened… I found myself suddenly being drawn to brighter colors and combos like turquoise and coral over my classics of black and navy. Flowers and butterflies, freedom and lightness, became more appealing to me, as well. SEARCH POSTS I think becoming an entrepreneur got me reminiscing about how imaginative I was in my earlier days. Performing and creating. I again began to be drawn to brighter, happier things! I realized this was happening from all the work I had been doing on changing my thought patterns and self-acceptance. My true nature was beginning to reappear as I was becoming more loving and Search Search
  2. 2. RECENT POSTS comfortable with myself. I was opening bit by glorious bit… Mindful Monday: Living Your Truth! Writers Wednesday: Stock Photos Magic I was finally opening and giving myself permission to be who I truly am and in that was automatically Mindful Monday: Track and Organize to being drawn to things in line with my true nature. It was small things like lighting candles and coloring Meet Your Goals to reduce stress, wearing my hair back curly and crazy for the fun and lightness, and incorporating brighter colors into my life. The problem was, I still wasn’t quite there yet with full allowance. After all, when you spend years suppressing the traits that you think are somehow “unacceptable,” it can be hard to just let your truth emerge. CATEGORIES Mindful Monday It was like, though in my twenties, I was still waiting for someone to give me permission to have fun, to get excited and not be so reserved and afraid. Writer's Wednesdays Fanship Friday Lori's Unconventional Advice I felt like I had this creative, fun and bright side that I was still afraid to express in my need to be “professional and responsible.” I felt that if I let the fun out people would view me as immature, childish, irresponsible, and get this…even unintelligent. All the things I have avoided, with a vengeance, Social Media Management Cheers to Health & Wellness all my life! Alas I Realized… I’m usually a fast learner, but this one took me a while to get. But, at last, I realized the only person’s permission I needed was my own. About that time when all this was going on in my highly active brain, I somehow stumbled across Carol Tuttle’s work on energy profiling. I watched the free “Dressing Your Truth” series Carol did and picked up her book It’s Just My Nature! What is Different About This from the Others? Carol makes a point not to tell you who you are, because you already know. She let’s you read the 4 energy profiles and decide for yourself. Your intuition is then backed up with body profiling which helps you determine if you were right through your natural movement and facial features. Personality can be tainted over the years (like me suppressing my lighter side), so body profiling gives you the real deal. Even your doodling reveals who you are! ABUNDANCE WORKSHOP This is so much less limiting than all those other “assessment type” systems. You know who you are deep down. You don’t need anyone to tell you, you just need to rediscover for yourself. We all express all four types, but have a dominate and secondary that greatly impacts how we move and interact with the world. Discovery takes letting go of the “shoulds,” which I find highly detrimental. After years of being who we think we should be, we can bury who we really are so deep that we don’t even know anymore. We do it for other people: parents, friends, teachers, bosses, etc.
  3. 3. But, let me tell you what they all truly need from you, even if they don’t realize it…. What the people in your life truly need is your authenticity authenticity. ABUNDANCE QUIZ, GIVE IT A TRY! That is when you are the strongest, happiest, most loving version of yourself. That is when you will be able to give the most back from your overflowing fullness! It’s Just My Nature is teaching me to work with my complete opposite Type 1 and Type 4 energies in harmony, rather than feeling like I have multiple personalty disorder and a war happening inside me. I can now love the organization of my Type 4 while embracing the fun of my Type 1 as my brain runs NetworkedBlogs rapid fire and I seek more excitement! Blog: Immensely Social I love this quote from John Green when talking to his brother Hank, Topics: Social Media, Blogging, Writing Follow my blog “… nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘Oh yeah that purse is okay’ or like, ‘Yeah, I like that band’s early stuff.’ Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they are saying is, ‘You like stuff’, which is just not a good insult at all, like ‘You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.” That quote so resonates with me. I want to give myself permission to Dare Greatly (Thank you Dr. Brene Brown). To be authentically me in my most loving, fun, enthusiastic way! I want to learn to give myself permission to get excited about “stuff,” jump up and down excited and know that it is not only ok, but needed in the world. I now know I’m free to rock pink with Tiffany blue if a want to and still be smart, and still run my business in a loving and professional manner! There is a presence and power in being who you are that draws others to your authenticity. Like Zooey Deschanel’s character Jess on New Girl, I can be fun, true to myself, and still smart and strong! “I break for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours! …And that doesn’t mean I’ m not smart and tough and strong.” I know it will take work, but I’m on the journey! Will you join me? “By recognizing the value in yourself you will develop a greater ability to recognize it in others, as well.” ~From my book 5 Gifts to Give Yourself It’s not just about you! When you understand how the different natures compliment each other, you will be more loving and understanding with everyone! Relationships can truly be transformed with this information. When you light up, you light up others too!
