Who am I?  I’ve played many roles over my lifetime:  sister, daughter, student, wife, ex-wife, overachiever, community volunteer, lawyer, leader, and entrepreneur, to name a few.  I’ve realized that those are roles I’ve played and not a definition of who I am.  That’s an important distinction in life.  I recently realized that I had confused the two.  Since that time, I’ve been in search of who I am so I can live a totally fulfilling, on-purpose life.  So, who am I?  I am a lover of people. A lover of animals.  I am a healer. I inspire. I play the role of attorney to help brave entrepreneurs who dare follow their dreams. I am an adventurer searching for my life purpose and have decided to live the life that truly moves me, not the one that has defined me. I am an aspiring artist and writer.  I am an avid yoga practitioner.  I am most alive running mountain trails. I am a great cook. I am a good friend striving to be an outstanding friend.  I am a lover of wines.  I am excited to be on this journey and enjoy the unfolding of the gift of life.  I’ve learned tremendous lessons over the years.  I’m at a place in life where all the lessons have allowed me to discover who I am, to look behind the roles, to come out from hiding, to stop achieving for unnecessary reasons and to find my voice and the platform to share it with those interested in learning and growing with me.   My new chapter is one of purpose, power, balance, creativity, connection and adventure.  If you would like to join me in my adventures, this is where you will find me.  You can also e-mail me at Joan@LaVidaTrutina.com.
