In this episode, we talk about Lori’s work and her best selling book: Maybe You Should Talk To Someone. Lori talks about the importance of making choices that are true to ourselves and that help us lead a more meaningful life. Lori writes about our 100% mortality rate and how keeping that in mind can help us see our lives in a different light. We can examine our priorities and the way we spend our time thus allowing us to make more considerate and authentic choices.
