Lori Deschene is the founder of Tiny Buddha, a self-help website
that draws inspiration from thousands of contributors who share
their stories and life lessons on the blog. She's also the author
of Tiny Buddha's Gratitude Journal, Tiny Buddha's Worry
Journal, the upcoming Tiny Buddha's Inner Strength
Journal, and more. She started the site after a decade
struggling with depression, bulimia, and self-loathing because she
wanted to recycle her pain into something useful for others, turn
her former shame into pride, and enable others to do the same.
Lori identifies as many things-an introvert, a highly sensitive person, a dreamer, and a work-in-progress, to name a few. She loves traveling with her boyfriend, reading true crime books in the tub, playing with her sons, and planning all the adventures she dreams of sharing with them.
