Is there something you’ve thought about starting or changing in your life, but haven’t quite managed to let the bull out of the pen yet? 

How long have you been sitting with it?

At one point or another, we’ve all been tapped on the shoulder by some seemingly far-fetched dream of transitioning into something new. But, actually following through with it….why does that seem soooo difficult? 

As much as you might crave that motivating “new project” feeling, or want to initiate the career revamp you’ve been flirting with for years, or maybe even throw your hat back into the dating game and find yourself on that first date which, before you know it, has turned into 20, we know that change requires more than wishful thinking. 

Activating ourselves to walk that first mile is always the hardest part. 

We allow “what-if’s” to take up space in our heads, and it can get overwhelming real quick. But, rather than throwing in the towel, we’ve got to somehow find the will-power to keep going.

Creator’s gotta create. 

So, what is it, exactly, that we need in order to follow through on our hearts desires? 

If we want to know how women are able to find the energy to begin anew, and how they find the time to prioritize what’s important, we need to see it working for someone else.

Today’s guest is author, healer, teacher, and teacher-trainer, Charlyn Reihman. She’s a passionate yoga, meditation, self-care, and healing instructor who also leads classes, workshops, retreats, and private one-on-one sessions all over the world. Her recently published book, Walking the Path of Love , is based on the core teachings of Swami Kripalu. 

In this episode, Karlee opens the conversation with Charlyn, naturally, about the process of beginning. Charlyn shares the wisdom of her experience around knowing what to stop and where to start when you’re ready to fully devote yourself to that dream that’s been tapping you on the shoulder. She’ll tell you how to find the right kind of support that’ll not only get you through that first mile, but also carry you over the finish line.

If you’re ready to walk the path of devotion towards something new, then this is the episode for you.
