Day 1: Embrace the Chaos

“Life’s a beautiful mess. Embrace the chaos, and remember, you’ve survived every tough day so far.”

Hey there guys, gals, and non-binary pals! It’s your friend Lori Ann, and I’m here to share a bit of my own messy yet beautiful journey with you.

If you’ve been following my story, you know that I’ve been narcotic-free for 4.5 years now. Yep, you read that right—4.5 years of kicking addiction to the curb and embracing life in all its chaotic glory.


As a retired RN, I never thought I’d be trading in my scrubs for a keyboard, but here I am, the proud creator of Story of Lori—a mental health haven where I spill the tea on life’s ups and downs. It all started after losing my soulmate, my husband, who pleaded with me not to let grief drown me in addiction.


Fast forward to today, and I’ve turned the pain into passion, focusing on mental health for small business owners like myself. Because, let’s be real, being an entrepreneur can feel like navigating a ship through stormy seas. But hey, storms can be beautiful too, right?


My Etsy shop, the Story of Lori Emporium, is my creative playground where I craft #MentalHealthGifts, #AddictionRecovery gems, and a sprinkle of sarcasm for good measure. And remember, it’s not “our” shop—it’s my little haven.


Speaking of embracing the chaos, I’ve realized that life’s beautiful mess doesn’t pause, not even for a recovering addict. Recently, my addictionologist pointed out something mind-blowing—I weathered a major crisis sober. During that storm, the thought of diving back into addiction didn’t even cross my mind. Talk about a victory!


But hey, life’s a rollercoaster, and I’m riding it with a smile. From hardcore drug addict to blogger and successful businesswoman, my journey is a testament that the messiest paths can lead to the most beautiful destinations.

I pour my heart and humor into Story of Lori and in December of 2023 decided to pivot my Etsy shop from an emporium of things, to specializing in subtle pride, pride, cats, quotes, and mental health! The shop is now Ally Cat Pride. Allie Cat will be writing ‘Dear Allie the Ally Cat’ letters blog posts in response to questions about how to be an LGBTQ+ ally cat and my quirky cats took over my Instagram page,

I am also venturing onto Tiktok! For those who need a safe space, I started Ally Cat Pride FB group for the Ally Cat Crew.

So, if you’re ever feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, swing by the Story of Lori Emporium. Whether you’re on the hunt for mental health gifts, addiction recovery inspiration, or just a good laugh, I’ve got you covered.

As I continue to navigate this beautiful mess called life, I invite you to join me on this rollercoaster. Let’s embrace the chaos, find humor in the hiccups, and celebrate the victories—no matter how small or sarcastic they may be.

Remember, it’s not just a blog or an Etsy shop; it’s a community where we share the messy, beautiful journey of being human. So, grab a virtual seat, buckle up, and let’s ride this rollercoaster together.

Stay beautifully messy, my friends!

Day 2: Self-Love Reminder

“Take a moment to appreciate yourself. You’re a work of art in progress. Love the masterpiece that is you.”

You Are a Work in Progress
You Are a Work in Progress

Self-love isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a purr-sonal commitment to treating yourself with kindness. Take a moment to acknowledge your achievements, big and small. It’s like giving yourself a warm, fluffy hug – and who wouldn’t want that? 🤗

Cats are the masters of self-care. Take inspiration from them; they nap guilt-free, demand attention when needed, and unapologetically indulge in their favorite treats. Channel your inner cat – prioritize your well-being, and don’t forget to pamper yourself a bit. After all, you’re the true royalty of your kingdom! 👑🐱

Day 3: Laughter is Medicine

“Laughter is the best therapy. Find humor in the little things, and let joy be your guide.”

🌈 Laughing Like a Cat: The Purr-scription for Wellness 🐾😂

Greetings, fellow joy enthusiasts! Lori Ann here, your guide to the lighter side of life. Today, let’s embark on a journey into the heartwarming realm of laughter—a medicine so powerful, it rivals the most potent elixirs. And guess what? We’ll be accompanied by our trusty sidekicks in the joy department—cats!

The Healing Power of Laughter:

Laughter is a universal language that transcends boundaries. It’s a symphony of joy that echoes in the soul, a burst of positive energy that can brighten even the darkest days. As we navigate the twists and turns of life, a good laugh becomes our compass, pointing us toward the brighter side of every situation.

Cat-Approved Chuckles:

Now, let’s add a dash of feline charm to the mix. Cats, with their quirky antics and mischievous playfulness, are natural comedians. From acrobatic jumps to playful paw swats, they’ve mastered the art of finding joy in the simplest things. Take a cue from your feline friends—embrace the absurdity of life, find delight in the mundane, and let your laughter ripple through the air like a cat’s purr.

The Cat’s Guide to Laughter Therapy:

  1. Playful Pounce: Ever witnessed a cat’s surprise pounce on an unsuspecting toy? Channel that spontaneity in your life. Surprise yourself with a spontaneous laugh—it’s like a mini pounce for your soul.
  2. Giggle Yoga: Cats stretch effortlessly, and so should your laughter. Engage in a bit of giggle yoga. Stretch your smile, let the laughter flow from your core, and feel the rejuvenating effects ripple through your body.
  3. Purr-sonal Comedy Hour: Designate a daily ‘purr-sonal comedy hour.’ Whether it’s a funny meme, a stand-up routine, or a hilarious cat video, immerse yourself in laughter. Your joy is the main event!
  4. Whisker-Twitching Tales: Just as cats enjoy a good story (preferably one involving the conquest of a feathered foe), immerse yourself in humorous tales. Lose yourself in books, movies, or anecdotes that tickle your funny bone.
  5. Cat Nap Comedy: Ever noticed how cats seem to dream of chasing the impossible? Allow yourself a cat nap where dreams are filled with whimsical adventures. Wake up with a smile, ready to conquer the day.

The Cat-Laugh Connection:

Why does the feline world and laughter go paw-in-paw? Cats, with their carefree attitude and ability to find joy in the smallest moments, teach us a valuable lesson—laughter is an essential part of self-care. So, my friends, let your laughter dance with the elegance of a cat chasing sunlight on a lazy afternoon.

Day 4: Inner Strength Unleashed

“You are stronger than you think. Your resilience knows no bounds. Keep going, the best is yet to come.”

Life’s journey often presents challenges that test the limits of our strength. In the face of adversity, it’s easy to underestimate the reservoirs of courage within us. But let me assure you, my resilient friend, you possess a strength that runs deeper than the ocean and a tenacity that outshines the brightest stars.

Unveiling the Layers of Strength:

Strength isn’t just about physical might; it’s a multi-faceted gem with layers that reveal themselves in various forms. Your emotional resilience, your ability to navigate the storms of life, and your unwavering spirit—all these facets contribute to the incredible strength that resides within you.

The Journey of Self-Discovery:

Discovering your strength is a journey, much like unwrapping a series of gifts. Some gifts may come in the form of overcoming past struggles, while others manifest as the wisdom gained from life’s lessons. Each experience, whether joyous or challenging, contributes to the masterpiece that is your strength.

Catalysts of Strength:

Take a moment to reflect on the catalysts that have fueled your inner fortitude. Perhaps it’s the unwavering support of loved ones, the resilience cultivated through overcoming obstacles, or the sheer determination born from the desire to live your best life. These are the threads that weave together the tapestry of your strength.

The Cat’s Lesson in Strength:

Now, let’s draw inspiration from our feline friends. Cats, despite their elegant demeanor, possess an innate strength that allows them to gracefully navigate even the trickiest situations. They embody the essence of silent power—the kind that doesn’t need to roar to be felt.

In the same way, your strength doesn’t always need to be loud or flashy. It can be the quiet, persistent force that propels you forward. Much like a cat confidently struts along a narrow ledge, you, too, can navigate the precarious paths of life with grace and poise.

Nurturing Your Inner Warrior:

As you progress on your mental health journey, remember to nurture your inner warrior. Celebrate the victories, no matter how small, and acknowledge the resilience that resides within you. You are the architect of your strength, and every step forward is a testament to your power.

So, my mighty friend, on this seventh day of mental health, embrace the truth: You are stronger than you think. The echoes of your strength resonate not only within you but also ripple outward, inspiring others to discover their own wellsprings of courage.

Stay resilient, stay strong, and remember that the heart of a warrior beats within you.

Day 5: Dance in the Rain


“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain. Find joy in every moment.”

5 1
5 1

Today’s theme is as refreshing as a summer rain—“Dance in the Rain.”

Life, much like the weather, is unpredictable. Storm clouds gather, and raindrops fall, symbolizing the challenges that occasionally shower upon us. But here’s the secret: within those raindrops lies an invitation to dance, to revel in the beauty of resilience.

The Symphony of Raindrops:

Imagine each raindrop as a note in the symphony of life. Some notes may be soft and gentle, like the drizzle that kisses your face, while others may be fierce and passionate, like the torrential downpour that demands your attention. In every raindrop, there’s an opportunity to find rhythm and meaning.

Embracing Imperfections:

Dancing in the rain isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to embrace the beauty within the chaos. Just as raindrops bring life to the earth, challenges can nurture growth within us. The dance is a celebration of imperfections, a recognition that even in the midst of storms, there’s room for joy.

The Cat’s Rainy Day Ritual:

Let’s take a cue from our feline companions. Cats, known for their elegance, don’t shy away from a little rain. Picture a cat gracefully navigating the rain-soaked landscape, unfazed by the wet fur. Similarly, you can navigate the challenges with the same grace. The rain may fall, but your spirit can stay unbroken.

The Dance of Resilience:

Your mental health journey is a dance—a choreography of highs and lows, twists and turns. In moments of challenge, channel your inner dancer. Move with the rhythm of your heartbeat, sway with the winds of change, and twirl with the unpredictability of life. Your resilience is the dance floor, and every step is a testament to your strength.

Creating Your Rain Dance Playlist:

Craft a playlist that mirrors the beats of your resilience. Include songs that lift your spirits, tunes that make you want to twirl and sway, and melodies that carry the promise of brighter days. Let the music be the soundtrack to your dance in the rain.

The Joy in Getting Wet:

Remember, getting wet in the rain isn’t a setback—it’s an opportunity to cleanse and renew. Similarly, facing challenges head-on can be a cleansing experience for your mind and soul. Embrace the joy in getting a little wet, knowing that each raindrop holds the potential for growth.

So, my rain-dancing friend, on this ninth day of mental health, let the raindrops be a reminder: Dance in the Rain. Your resilience is the rhythm, and your spirit is the dancer. Revel in the beauty of the storm, for it paves the way for a brighter, more vibrant you.

Keep dancing, keep smiling, and let the raindrops of life be a source of inspiration.

😺🌈 The Healing Whiskers: Cat Therapy Unleashed 🌈😺

Greetings, fellow cat enthusiasts and seekers of joy! Lori Ann here, ready to dive into the magical realm of therapeutic wonders that come in the form of purrs, whiskers, and fuzzy companionship. Today, let’s explore the world of Cat Therapy.

The Purr-fect Therapists:

If you’ve ever been in the presence of a cat, you know something is enchanting about the way they navigate the world. Cats, with their innate ability to radiate calmness, offer a unique form of therapy that goes beyond words. It’s a therapy that speaks the universal language of purrs and gentle nudges.

Purring Prescription:

The gentle hum of a cat’s purr is a symphony of tranquility. Scientifically proven to lower stress levels and promote healing, the act of petting a cat becomes a two-way street of comfort. As you stroke their soft fur, your stress melts away, and in return, your furry friend basks in the warmth of your affection.

Cats and Mental Wellness:

In the realm of mental health, cats play the roles of therapists and confidantes. They create a safe space, free of judgment, where you can express your emotions without reservation. A cat’s mere presence has the power to alleviate anxiety and loneliness, fostering a sense of connection and belonging.

Feline Mindfulness Masters:

Ever noticed how a cat can be fully present in the moment? Whether they’re mesmerized by a sunbeam or fully engaged in a game of chase, cats are mindfulness masters. They teach us to appreciate the simple joys of life, to revel in the beauty of now, and to let go of the burdens that weigh us down.

Playful Distractions:

The playful antics of a cat are unparalleled in their ability to bring forth laughter and joy. From acrobatic leaps to mischievous tail-chasing, their playful distractions serve as instant mood lifters. Engaging in these playful moments becomes a therapeutic exercise, a delightful escape from the stresses of the day.

Non-Judgmental Companions:

Cats are the epitome of non-judgmental companionship. They accept you as you are, embracing your quirks and idiosyncrasies without question. In their company, you find a sanctuary free from expectations—a space where you can be authentically yourself.

Cat Therapy Toolkit:

  1. Cuddles and Comfort: Engage in cuddle sessions with your furry therapist. Their warmth and softness provide a soothing balm for the soul.
  2. Interactive Play: Participate in interactive play sessions. The shared joy of playtime creates bonds that go beyond the surface, fostering a sense of connection.
  3. Mindful Moments: Spend mindful moments observing your cat. Notice the rhythm of their breathing, the softness of their fur, and the contentment in their eyes. Allow these moments to anchor you in the present.
  4. Purring Meditation: Set aside time for a purring meditation. Sit or lie down with your cat and focus on the soothing vibrations of their purr. Let it wash away tension and bring a sense of tranquility.

In conclusion, my friends, cat therapy is a pawsome addition to your mental health toolkit. Let the healing whiskers and purring melodies of your feline companions guide you on a journey of joy and well-being.

Day 7: Mindfulness Magic


“Inhale confidence, exhale doubt. Practice mindfulness, and let the magic happen within and around you.”

Hello, champions of tranquility! Lori Ann here, your guide to a day filled with the enchantment of mindfulness. Today’s mantra is a spell that invites you to embrace the present moment with open arms: “Inhale confidence, exhale doubt. Practice mindfulness, and let the magic happen within and around you.”

The Breath of Transformation:

Begin this day with a conscious breath, a breath that carries the alchemy of transformation. Inhale deeply, drawing in the elixir of confidence that resides within you. Feel it infuse every cell, every fiber of your being. As you exhale, release doubt like a fluttering leaf carried away by the gentle breeze. Your breath becomes a dance of self-assurance, a rhythm that sets the stage for the magic to unfold.

Mindfulness as the Sorcerer’s Wand:

Enter the realm of mindfulness as if you were a wizard wielding a wand. In this practice, your awareness becomes the enchanting spell that turns ordinary moments into extraordinary experiences. Observe the colors, the textures, and the subtle nuances of your surroundings. Let each mindful breath be a flick of the wand, conjuring a sense of presence that transcends the ordinary.

The Magic Within:

Within you lies a wellspring of magic waiting to be tapped into. It’s in the way your heart beats with resilience, the way your mind weaves dreams, and the way your spirit dances with possibilities. Mindfulness unveils this inner magic, allowing you to connect with the essence of your being. As you go about your day, let each mindful moment be a revelation—an unveiling of the extraordinary within the ordinary.

Radiating Magic Around You:

Just as a pebble creates ripples in a pond, your mindful presence creates waves of magic around you. Notice the impact you have on your environment—the smiles you elicit, the positive energy you radiate, and the harmony you contribute to. Mindfulness isn’t just a personal journey; it’s a gift you share with the world, a ripple effect of magic that extends far beyond yourself.

Creating a Mindful Tapestry:

As the day unfolds, envision the threads of mindfulness weaving a tapestry of magic. Each interaction, each breath, and each step contributes to the masterpiece of your day. Mindfulness is your paintbrush, and the canvas is the vast expanse of your life. Paint with intention, and let the colors of confidence and presence create a masterpiece that reflects the magic within.

So, dear friends, on this seventh day of mental health, inhale confidence, exhale doubt, and let mindfulness weave its enchantment. May the magic within and around you illuminate the path to joy and serenity.

Day 8: Sarcasm Saves

“Sarcasm is my superpower against stress. When life gives you lemons, throw them back and ask for chocolate.”

Hello, purveyors of wit and wisdom! Lori Ann here, your sassy companion on this eighth day of mental health. Today, we’re diving headfirst into the pool of sarcasm because, let’s face it, sometimes a well-timed eye roll and a clever quip can be your superhero cape. So, buckle up, dear readers, as we explore the magic of “Sarcasm Saves.”

The Sassy Shield:

Picture sarcasm as your trusty shield—a shield that deflects the unnecessary, bounces back negativity, and adds a dash of humor to the mundane. In the face of life’s absurdities, wield your sarcasm like a sword of wit, cutting through the noise and leaving a trail of laughter in its wake.

Laughing in the Face of Challenges:

Life throws curveballs, and sometimes the best response is a sarcastic comment accompanied by an eyebrow raise. It’s not about undermining the gravity of a situation but rather about embracing the absurdity with a smirk. Sarcasm becomes your secret weapon, allowing you to laugh in the face of challenges and declare, “You won’t bring me down.”

The Cat’s Sassy Strut:

Ever notice how a cat struts with an air of confidence? Channel your inner feline and embrace the art of the sassy strut. Life may throw a few hairballs your way, but with a well-timed quip, you can sashay through the challenges with flair. Your sarcasm becomes the tail that flicks away the annoyances.

Sarcasm: The Antidote to Stress:

In the grand theater of life, stress often takes center stage. Enter sarcasm, the understated hero that swoops in to steal the show. A witty remark can turn a tense moment into a comedy, making stress retreat like a villain in the face of a hero’s one-liner. Stress may knock on your door, but with sarcasm as your bouncer, it won’t get past the entrance.

Crafting Sarcastic Spells:

Consider sarcasm as your wand, allowing you to cast spells of amusement and light-heartedness. Whether it’s a witty retort to a challenging situation or a clever comeback to your own inner critic, let your sarcasm be a spell that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. After all, a bit of sarcasm can turn even the most mundane moments into a stand-up comedy routine.

The Liberation of Sarcasm:

Sarcasm is a form of liberation—an unapologetic expression of your wit and intellect. It’s the rebel yell against conformity, the defiant laughter in the face of seriousness. As you navigate through the twists and turns of life, let your sarcasm be a beacon of light, guiding you with a twinkle in your eye and a smirk on your lips.

So, my fellow sarcastic saviors, on this eighth day of mental health, let your quips be sharp, your comebacks be clever, and your laughter be contagious. Sarcasm saves, my friends—embrace it with open arms and a raised eyebrow.

Day 9: Unplug and Recharge

“Unplug, unwind, and recharge. Your mental health is a priority, not a luxury. Take care of yourself.”

Unplug and recharge
Unplug and Unwind

Salutations, seekers of serenity! Lori Ann here, your guide to the art of rejuvenation on this tenth day of mental health. Today’s mantra is a gentle reminder to embrace the power of downtime: “Unplug and Recharge.”

The Digital Detox Oasis:

In a world buzzing with notifications and a cacophony of virtual noise, consider your mind a sanctuary deserving of tranquility. Unplug from the digital whirlwind, disconnect from the constant stream of information, and let your mind revel in the soothing quietude of the present moment.

Reclaiming Mental Real Estate:

Our minds are precious real estate, and, like any valuable property, they require moments of rest and rejuvenation. Unplugging isn’t just about disconnecting from devices; it’s about reclaiming mental space, creating room for stillness, and allowing thoughts to flow like a gentle stream rather than a roaring river.

The Cat’s Art of Napping:

Channel your inner cat, the master of the rejuvenating nap. Cats effortlessly switch from high-energy play to serene repose. Similarly, let your unplugged moments be a catnap for the soul—recharging your mental batteries, restoring your focus, and leaving you ready to pounce on life’s opportunities.

Mindful Moments sans Screens:

Replace the constant glow of screens with the natural radiance of sunlight or the calming ambiance of candlelight. Engage in mindful moments—whether it’s savoring a cup of tea, feeling the warmth of the sun on your face, or simply observing the world around you without the digital filter.

The Liberation of Disconnection:

Unplugging isn’t a retreat; it’s a liberation. Liberating yourself from the digital realm allows you to reconnect with the tangible world—the rustle of leaves, the melody of birdsong, and the soothing rhythm of your own breath. Disconnection becomes a form of reconnection—with yourself and the universe.

Creating Unplugged Rituals:

Designate sacred pockets of time for unplugging, creating rituals that signal the transition from the digital realm to the analog world. Whether it’s a tech-free hour before bedtime, a screen-free morning routine, or a weekend escape from constant connectivity, let these rituals be your passport to serenity.

Recharging the Creative Well:

In the absence of constant digital stimuli, your mind becomes a fertile ground for creativity. Unplugging is akin to watering the creative well, allowing ideas to sprout, bloom, and flourish. Let your imagination wander, unbridled by the constraints of screens, and watch as the landscape of your mind transforms into a vibrant garden of inspiration.

So, dear champions of rejuvenation, on this tenth day of mental health, remember the transformative power of “Unplug and Recharge.” Your mind is a sanctuary—let it bask in the unfiltered beauty of the present moment, and watch as the magic of reconnection unfolds.

Day 10: Celebrating Unconditional Love: A Message to Parents of LGBTQIA+ Kids 🌟🌈

Greetings, champions of love and acceptance! Lori Ann here, extending a heartfelt message on this tenth day of mental health. Today, let’s celebrate the profound beauty of unconditional love, specifically directed towards parents of LGBTQIA+ kids.

“Embrace diversity and foster love”

Embracing Diversity, Fostering Love:

Parenting is a journey of love, discovery, and growth. Today, I want to recognize and honor the parents who have embarked on a unique journey—the journey of supporting and embracing their LGBTQIA+ children. Your love is a beacon of acceptance, and your open hearts create a safe harbor for your children to flourish.

Unconditional Love: The True North:

In a world that sometimes struggles to understand diversity, your unwavering love becomes a compass guiding your children to their true north. It’s a love that transcends societal expectations, a love that shouts, “You are cherished for who you are, no conditions, no exceptions.”

Celebrating Authenticity:

Every LGBTQIA+ individual is a tapestry of uniqueness, a celebration of authenticity. As parents, your role in this celebration is pivotal. By embracing your child’s authentic self, you contribute to a world where differences are not just accepted but celebrated. Your acceptance becomes the melody that sets the tone for a harmonious and inclusive society.

The Cat’s Lesson in Acceptance:

Consider the way cats effortlessly accept one another, regardless of their unique quirks. Whether tabby or calico, every feline is part of the same pride. Channel this feline wisdom in your journey—love and accept your children with the unconditional embrace of a cat, recognizing the beauty in their unique stripes.

Nurturing Mental Well-Being:

Your support nurtures not only your child’s mental well-being but also contributes to their resilience. In a world that may not always understand, your love becomes a shield, protecting them from the arrows of judgment and fostering a sense of belonging that is crucial for mental health.

Educating Hearts, Changing Minds:

Your journey of acceptance also becomes an educational journey for those around you. As you navigate conversations with friends, family, and communities, you become ambassadors of understanding. By sharing your experiences, you contribute to a larger narrative that educates hearts and changes minds.

A Message of Hope:

To parents of LGBTQIA+ kids, know that your journey is a testament to the power of love. Your acceptance is not just a gift to your children but a gift to the world—a world that desperately needs more compassion, understanding, and unconditional love.

So, on this tenth day of mental health, let’s celebrate the parents who are champions of acceptance, advocates of love, and architects of a future where everyone is celebrated for their authentic selves.
