My name is Lori Veinot. I am very new to this whole blogging world so you’ll have to bare with me.
As the blog name implies, I am one shy and introverted gal. The thought of speaking in a group of more than 2 people scares the heck out of me. You’ll more than often find me in the farthest corner of a room observing my surroundings before venturing out. If anyone takes the time to come to my little corner and chat with me, it so means the world to me.
I LOVE going to music concerts/festivals, which is kinda funny given how shy and introverted I am. I think it’s just that I don’t have to chat and I can lose myself in the music. It’s a sense of freedom!! I LOVE animals, LOVE any type of nature/outdoor activity, and being by the water. I do SMILE LOTS.
I recently left my job of 16 years to do consulting work. I don’t know where this career is going to take me but it has given me the flexibility to write this blog. I would definitely not call myself a writer but words do come easier on paper than speaking.
My journey the last 20 so years has been quite the roller coaster of PERSISTENT depression and anxiety.
- Share my personal story of mental illness
- Share the strategies I’ve tried, I use and some new strategies
- Let folks who are struggling know they are not alone.
- To help me better understand myself.
So, lets see if we can calm the waters and our inner voice even just for a bit…
