Ever feel like your spirit is running on empty? Sure, you tick every box on your to-do list, and yes, it gives you a sense of accomplishment. But, you’re just not feeling…. nourished. You’re too busy ticking all the boxes to stop and think about what makes you tick. 

Sounds like you might have a boundary problem.

The same way we update our phones and our computer software, we have to keep our boundaries up to date. Every once in a while, we have to re-boot. And for humans, that means re-establishing our boundaries so we don’t burn-out.

Boundaries are at the core of everything that women who do well in the world understand. If we’re not taking care of them, we’re not taking care of ourselves. Broken boundaries can manifest in little bursts and blow-ups when we don't mean it. They can deteriorate relationships. They can actually make us sick and form the root of chronic health problems. 

When boundaries need building, bridges lead the way. 

In this episode, Karlee shares her favorite b-word...boundaries. She’ll reveal the signs of overwhelm that result from a collapsed boundary, and equip you with the tools you need to repair and reinforce what needs safeguarding. You’ll also learn how to outwit the three myths that scare us away from actually setting those boundaries.

A life without boundaries is a life that is not your own. It’s time to build a bridge that will reconnect you with yourself, and re-establish the boundaries that make “you” thrive.

If you’re ready to start with the small steps and build the bridges that will make you feel a little lighter, then this episode is for you.
