Some Loving Inspiration

Change Your Story. Change Your Life.

A few years ago, I participated in a very small yoga teacher training. On day one, we had to introduce ourselves and “share our story.” My introduction went something like this, “Hi, I’m Corinne. I’m a Dietitian and coach, and I just moved here after a breakup. I was dumped.” Translation? I made my story “I’m the girl who got dumped.” This sad story got me nowhere except pity and more sadness. And the recommendation to go home and “eat a bunch of ice cream.” Womp, womp… It was obvious. ...

Is Wanting to Lose Weight a Bad Thing?

A few weeks ago, I was on instagram doing “the usual scroll” when a certain post from a fellow instagrammer caught my eye. I can’t remember the full message, but the essence of the post was that wanting to lose weight was not good, and you should only want to focus on loving yourself. A few comments in on this post, a young woman strongly disagreed with the user who had posted it. She asked, “If you know you’re unhealthy, are you saying that wanting to lose weight is a ...

Dropping the Idea of How “IT” Should Look: YES. It’s Possible for You.

  Here, I was. On the side of the road. In my hometown. Being pulled over for driving 5 miles above the speed limit (eye roll). As the officer came up to my car, asking me why I was speeding, I apologized. I told him I didn’t realize I was speeding and that I was just trying to make it to my yoga class on time. He asked for my license and registration and walked to his car. He came back shortly, handing over my license and registration.   Officer: ...

Be The One Who Shows Up

When I was 16, I wanted to work at this restaurant called Java Grill. It was a burrito joint that did burgers, smoothies, and coffee drinks. It was a seat yourself, grab your food behind the counter kind of place. It was about a 20 minute walk from my house and I could get tips. I wanted a job and I wanted my own money.  So, one random summer day, I went in and applied to be a counter person. Right after I handed in my application, I was told ...

Dating & Want to Throw in the Towel? Read This.

A few years ago, the man I thought I’d marry, dumped me like a hot pancake. One unexpected night, he shared the news with me at our kitchen table that he was no longer in love and the next morning he was gone. I wouldn’t see him again until a month or so later when we overlapped briefly in our moving out schedules with a heartfelt, tear-felt “goodbye.” I had thought I was (hands raised, pumping with joy in the air) forever done with dating. After this scenario, that just ...

Here’s the Tool I Use Daily to Stop Being So Mean to Myself

What do you tell yourself? One of the first things I have new clients do is start paying attention to their thoughts about themselves and their body. How often are you assuming or making up stories? Would you talk to your daughter, sister or mother the way you talk to yourself? When you 1st start tuning-in to the thoughts and stories you’re telling yourself  – it can be exhausting and super scary. THIS is part of the process. Remember, you can’t really tackle something unless you’re aware of it. And ...

Don’t Quit, Rest.

I just finished up my 12th move in the last 13 years. Crazy. But beautiful at the same time. It’s a running joke in my family that my cat has moved more than most people. Some moves were for love. Some were for education. Some were for heartbreak. Some were for a change of city. And some were just for moving on. What each move has taught me is how to let go of what was and enjoy the new now. Resiliency so to speak.   It’s this resiliency – ...

The Real Reason You’re Not Achieving Your Goal

The other day I was sitting at my desk. Fuzzy socks on. Sweats rolled up. Giant coffee mugs everywhere. Notebooks open. Curly hair piled high … Thinking. No – that’s a lie – I was more like on the verge of overwhelm… But with a brief meditation session and the words from a past mentor ringing in my brain –  don’t get lost in your goal, focus on your actions –  I brought myself back down to a grounded space. With those words, I flipped myself around like a hot ...

The Things We Aren’t Taught

  Yesterday, I was talking to my dad on the phone. Deep in conversation (our conversations are more like mutual therapy sessions), he says something along the lines of, “No parent ever tells their kid when they’re little, ‘Welcome to the world, life is going to be hard.’ But that’s the fact of the matter. You’re going to have peaks, and you’re going to have valleys and the hope is that your peaks are more often than your valleys. But they’re both a part of life.” I pause, waiting. I ...

101 Ways to Know You’re Changing for the Better

How do you know you’re changing and growing for the better? Well, the first key to noticing any of your growth is self-reflection. It’s through self-reflection that we have the ability to recognize our growth. And it is in stillness that we discover our dreams, our visions, and our very own being. Because to put it quite frankly, if you never pause to notice where you’ve been or where you’re going, but most importantly where you are, you will miss the most important piece to self-discovery – stillness.   You ...
