Favorite Self Confidence Quote
Life is a dance between making it happen and letting it happen.
Definition of Self Confidence
Self confidence is having the courage to “love first”, which means starting to love yourself first, then loving others even when they don’t love you or are ready for love, and then sharing that love with our community. It’s about living and leading a life with love and choosing to love every moment of your life.
Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Lorie’s parents forgot to pick her up at school when she was 4 years old and she ended up walking home by herself. She knocked on the door and no one answered. She felt like no one loved her, abandoned but independent. She also went through a divorce.
The “AHA” Moment
For Lorie, going through the divorce was when she realized her worth. As a high achiever, she got married because she thought she needed to but she didn’t do it for the right reasons. She lost her identity when after the divorce and decided to get a coach to bring her back to her core. She realized that she is a human being with values and a purpose.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
Lorie increased her capacity to love. She is fearless and welcomes change and the unexpected.
