Say yes.

Say yes | Diane Direct

This never changes, no matter where you are in your journey or which path you’re on. You can choose to say yes or no to opportunities. And discerning between opportunities and distractions is not always easy! In fact, that decision making process is a skill that needs to be honed, a muscle that must be consistently worked. And there will …

How I Eat When I Travel

How I stay on track eating-wise while traveling | Diane Sanfilippo

One question I’m asked a lot is how I stay on track eating-wise while traveling. Here are some examples of how I make choices that help me feel my best when I’m away from home. All of these were keto choices for me. A late morning breakfast out at Lemon Press in Nantucket – I ordered a salad with chicken and feta. …

You are exactly where you need to be.

You are exactly where you need to be. | Diane Direct

I know sometimes, maybe most of the time, it can feel like this isn’t true. But, I promise you, it *is* true. Even if you’re currently working at a job you hate. Even if you’re trying to figure out how to get out of a bad relationship. Even if you’re barely rubbing two nickels together. Even if you’re working on …

Do You Believe In Yourself?

Do you believe in yourself? | Diane Direct

This one is HARD. Because often people who are *supposed* to love and support us unconditionally, like family, are some of the *least* supportive. The problem is that as we grow into adulthood, we also often maintain unhealthy, sometimes codependent relationships with our family when we really need to break free from that. Just because you were born into the …

How We Build Confidence

confidence | Diane Direct

How to earn/build CONFIDENCE: The next time you find yourself saying or thinking, “but I don’t know how to do that,” FIGURE IT OUT. I can’t tell you the number of times people have said to me, “but I don’t know how to use MailChimp (for example)”… PEOPLE! No one was born knowing how to do much of anything. No …

Your Voice Matters

The number of times I’ve heard women say, “but there are already so many people teaching about this topic,” or “there’s too much competition,” or “I’ll never catch up to her,” or “but I don’t have anything worth saying.” YOU GUYS. Can you imagine if I had let those thoughts stop me when there were a ton of people already …

New This Week / July 18, 2018

I’m keeping things simple today, with a quick kitchen hack for you… You know how you open a (BPA-free) can of coconut milk and then use a little bit and are left with an open can? You know how you *also* get more free shaker bottles than a human ever needs? Allow me to introduce you to THE BEST IDEA …

New This Week / July 11, 2018

I feel like a broken record sometimes. And, I wonder if maybe the process of being injured or getting sick – or, ahem, going through a stressful time in life – could simply be accompanied by a *hall pass* for working out that extends however many days, weeks, or months past the pausing-situation so that we could all just stop …

New This Week / July 4, 2018

Last week, I realized what that *horrible* feeling was after the fact. You know, the feeling when you are both *paralyzed* and also anxious to take action. The feeling when you thought you had a good idea, but then something came along, or (someone?), or just the wrong information entered your consciousness and suddenly, SELF DOUBT sets in. I will …
