Pressing Pause on Life to Discover Your Truest Joy
Guest: Kim Newton | Season 10, Ep. 409

Pausing and intention are key to self-fulfillment.” – Kim Newton 

Did you know 36% of women aren’t following their dreams? Kim Newton was one of them several years ago, and it took some monumental people (and moments) to help her realize there was so much more to life. In today’s episode, Dr. Michelle Robin invites Kim to unfold what was going on inside her heart when she began to sense a change was needed. Her story is both inspiring and action-oriented, meaning it wasn’t the inspiration that took her forward but the people around her that made her take steps toward a life full of happiness, abundance, and fulfillment. The decision to “disrupt her life” and take time to pause was exactly what she needed to quiet her head talk, and tune into her heart. Kim will help you think about what your truest “joy” is inside your own heart. She will ask some emotionally-charged questions for you to reflect on, but also share how her passion was something that had actually been part of her for a majority of life already – but it took some rekindling to find it. This episode is sure to linger in your heart long after it’s over.
