In episode 51 of Enlightenedhood, Ryann shares how everything she thought she knew and wanted was flipped upside down after the birth of her first daughter. After being diagnosed with Postpartum Depression, which she believes was actually Postpartum Anxiety, she had a come to Universe moment where she realized it was time for her to pivot.

From this period of burnout, Ryann discovered mindfulness and started transforming her life. She shares the obstacles in juggling motherhood with a mindful practice and why giving yourself grace is so important. Ryann also provides amazing insight as to when your work *ACTUALLY* comes into play.

Lastly, Ryann and Leena talk about purpose and why there is a misconception about what finding your purpose actually looks like. Ryann reminds us that stepping into our authentic selves takes messy action and trial and error.
