Your Guide & Podcast Host
Hi! I’m Lori and I’m really glad you’re here.
We are born storytellers, it is ingrained in our DNA. It’s how we communicate our past, share, teach, and define our world to ourselves and others.
The stories we tell ourselves create our realities – they can motivate us, scare us, help us find joy or sabotage us.
I’m here to help you LOVE YOUR STORY – whatever it is. What we live and what we live through make us the people we are, in all our messy beauty.
Carmel Clermont is a Haitian woman who was raised by her aunt in Haiti until she was 15 years old. She finally joined her parents in the US in 1986. She went to high school, and to college, got married and had 5 children, inherited 5 stepchildren and decided she was most at home when she was helping others, so she went to work to unofficially adopt 300 children in Haiti through the support of their orphanages. Tune in for stories of teaching sex education, child prostitution, single mother programs, schooling and food for all ages, and one woman who creates a story that affects so many others.
Every choice, every action creates ripples, creates responses, closes doors, open doors, hurts, helps, generates energy and creates your future. Will you start off choosing actions that make YOUR soul sing, or create love? Will you fight off fear that may loom about your day ahead? Will you yell at your kids, or take a run, or take someone for granted, or listen to an inspirational podcast that may trigger an action that will change up your day and maybe your story? Will you allow your inner critic to rip into you today, or will you manage your inner stories? The choices are endless – really, you could create anything. What will you create today? Right now? What is your storyline? Is it on autopilot or can you shake it up for a little novelty? Maybe just what you need today is to do something completely unexpected. Ooohhhhh – what might that be and where might that take you? Do it! Tune in for a scientific, as well as a pop-culture look at how we really do create our own experiences and how we can be in charge of that. I also have a guest interview with Taylor Proctor the host of the Happiness Abound podcast.
An origin story tells where you’re from and how you got to the place you are now. It often shows your journey of learning and thus helps others know you better, trust you more, and comprehend how they want to interact with you. Spiderman’s origin story is based in receiving his powers from a scientific accident. Batman’s origin story is based in the death of his parents and how this shapes his choices and the trajectory of his life. Wonder Woman’s origin story is one of being raised by all-female Amazonian warriors with a sense of responsibility to the world. Superhero origin stories are fun to look at and they ALWAYS play the major role in the character and their superhero path. As do the stories of our pasts, create for us the forward projection of our lives In today’s episode we talk about how your origin story can help you, and I throw in an interview with Will Schaub, a Vietnamese immigrant and how his origin story of coming to a country as a small child, losing his father, watching his mother struggle to learn a new landscape gave him the roots to overcome his own obstacles in life. Tune in.
