Lori Blevins


United States

If not for 11th and 12th grade English and Mrs. Mitchell, much of high school would have been a forgettable experience. It was in this class, with this inspiring teacher, that I discovered I had a voice and thoughts and opinions and questions. As a class, we read, wrote, discussed, debated, laughed, and became friends. This is when I learned to love writing. As a very withdrawn adolescent, the freedom and ability to express my thoughts opened up a whole new world to me. As a very introspective adult, my love affair with writing has continued.

I earned an associate's in Journalism in college along with my bachelor's in Political Science. I went on to get my elementary teaching credential and Masters in Education. I taught for over 15 years and attempted to transfer my love of reading and writing to my students. As I look to begin my second career, writing remains a passion and one I hope to pursue further.

The One Phrase that can Radically Shift our Relationships.

I first heard these words watching the Brené Brown Netflix special, ya'll. She was telling the story of an unremarkable moment with her husband during which her actions and intentions, and his response didn't mesh. They not only didn't mesh, they collided like a ship into an iceberg.
