are you ready to shape a life you love?

One that speaks to you, your passions, and your sense of purpose? One that acknowledges that you may be at your mid-point in life – or beyond – but that you still have a whole lot of living to do?

My goal with CircleSquareOval is to take you on a journey of self-discovery, well-being, and personal growth so that you can truly create the life you want. My blog is geared toward women on the top side of forty or beyond – although I hope there are nuggets of wisdom for everyone!

So, tell me – what do you really want from your life?

Chances are, it’s pretty similar to what most other women want – and that boils down to three C’s: clarity, confidence, and connection.

Clarity: when your needs, wants and purpose in life come into focus and become precise, clear and easy to understand.

Confidence: a feeling of trust and firm belief in yourself.

Connection: the act of linking or coming into contact with other people and the world around us.

I know these are things I’m looking for.

You see, I am not a life coach, psychologist, or counselor. Although I have training in all of these, ultimately I am just like you – a woman who wants to get the most out of her second act of life.

I want to dig deep into what makes each of us unique and discover how we can grow to be the best and truest version of ourselves. I want this for me and for you too!

I want to SHINE (my Word of the Year for 2020) and I want to help light a path for other women to shine their own lights, as well. Together, we will glow so brightly!

My story

My name is Lori Roach. I’m in my mid-fifties, and you can tick off many of the more typical boxes – I’m married (30 years, where did the time go!). I’ve got two amazing grown children and one sweet furboy, Ozzie (just checks my Instagram for proof of how sweet he is!)
My career focused on education administration, counseling, and conference management, but now I’m focused on this journey of self-discovery and enjoy a calmer pace of life. I have moved (are you ready for this?) 23 times in my life (an average of every other year!) My father was in the Navy and my husband is a contractor, so I’ve lived all over the US. Currently, I’m enjoying beach life in Southern California. I could go on and on, but I really just wanted to give you a general idea of who I am and why I focus on self-awareness topics on my blog. And so, here we go!

Clarity, Confidence, and Connection!

Let’s grow together, and turn our second acts into the best part of our lives! We have so much to offer ourselves, our loved ones, and the world.

But let’s START with connection – I’d love it if you’d join my mailing list so we can stay in touch! I email just about twice a month, so it’s not overwhelming.
