S07 | 10 – Forging Your Own Recovery with Corinne Simpson
Recovery isn’t one size fits all. You may have to break out of the box to forge a way to your recovery. That’s what today’s guest, Corinne Simpson, did, and she just recently celebrated her 20th year of sobriety! Despite her respect for programs like AA, they just didn’t work for her and what she wanted from her sobriety, so she found something that did. You can do the same.
Listen in as she shares the amazing possibilities and options for recovery that are out there, and how she was able to forge her own recovery and rebuild her life to be what she wanted.

Also reminds me that you really don’t know a person’s history based on how they’re showing up in the world today – whether their past is good, bad or otherwise, how they show up …
Adjust my Balance.
My favourite time of day is 645am, when I’m done exercising, dressed for the day, have my coffee and I sit on the couch with the dogs. Just sit. Peaceful. No technology. Just sit. It’s a strange feeling…the sitting. I remember early in our relationship, Robbie noticed my foot was bouncing while we talked. He made an observation about how …
I had the privilege of speaking at a local women’s group here in Calgary last night – everyone at Women Talk Calgary South were so welcoming, authentic and supportive, it was a real pleasure to participate. The mandate of this group is to be a safe place to tell your story, to be accepted and not judged and for your …
Sorry I haven’t texted you back.

This post really resonated with me and based on the number of people who responded to my post, sounds like it resonated with a lot of you as well. Sometimes, it’s easier to say nothing than …
