How to Improve Relationships Through Inner Work | Diane Sanfilippo

In reflecting on the personal development work I’ve been doing for nearly a decade overall, it’s typically hard to see or experience the self-improvements in a bubble. I don’t mean better eating habits or workout routine. I mean inner work. I find it’s often only in relation to others where we realize the benefits or progress of our inner work. … Read More

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.

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.

Do You Believe In Yourself?

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.

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.

Why I *don't* just talk about food. #DIANEDIRECT | Diane Sanfilippo

Part of what I’m here (in the world) to do is to WAKE people up. Whether it’s to the fact that we have control over our health largely through what we eat, by shining light on the uncomfortable conversations that *need* to take place, or opening up and dismantling the judgment and criticism that this social media-based world somehow makes … Read More
