Sometimes, rather than devour that whole bag of chocolates, it’s actually more nourishing to nibble on just one (ok, maybe 2…). 

If you’re facing a week or month where your plate feels a little too full, but you don’t want to sacrifice what nourishes you, then that single piece of dark chocolate becomes more meaningful. More satisfying. And even more delectable. 

This month, Karlee’s bringin’ you the dark chocolate one bite at a time; short, sweet, nourishing concepts that you can expand on at your own pace. 

In this episode, she asks you to explore what healthy, grounded optimism might look like in your world. You’ll learn how to dig deeper to find what’s at the root of your emotions, and you’ll hear a simple exercise that can help you find balance in that truth. 

If you’re ready to get real about where you are in this moment AND address what needs shifting through simple, actionable words, then this is the episode for you.
