Excellent article, Amber Lisa! Very well written, interesting, provocative, and fun to read. Hasn’t changed my opinion of my LoA experiences but still a great piece. I said it seems that LoA isn’t for me but perhaps it works for others. Maybe your article will be the aha moment for someone. I hope so. But, I still maintain that self-confidence and courage are the cornerstones of creating anything. With or without LoA, self-confidence and courage are the tools you need. Unfortunately, when someone is beaten down by life, is depressed, hopeless, and desperate, those qualities are absent or impossible to summon. But, I truly hope someone reads this and it lights the fire they need to create an awesome life.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
