If we're being honest, life as usual is not the life we want. The same old thing is not enough. And while so many of us want change, we don't know where to start. My name is Caleb and I strongly believe that we are all being guided into a deeper and more fulfilled way of life, but sometimes, we just need help finding our way. So, think of this podcast kind of like your own personal trail guide. On this podcast, I'll share my own personal stories, stories from others, ancient wisdom, poetry and contemplative practices in hopes that it will empower you and help lead you as you say yes to your own journey of wandering inwardly and finding your way.
Saying Goodbye and Welcoming New Beginnings
I'm officially saying goodbye to Finding Your Way but not saying goodbye to podcasting all together. On this short episode, I explain why.
You can find me on my new podcast, You're Doing A Good Job. I hope to see you there.
Ep. 25 - Litsa Williams - What's Your Grief
On today’s episode with Litsa Williams, who is the program director and co-founder of the platform or website called What’s Your Grief, we talk alot about what Litsa calls nonfinite loss —which is a grief that persists and changes as aspects of life continually fall short of expectations.
In other words, we talked about how we can begin to create the space in our hearts and our lives to grieve the unmet expectations or unfulfilled dreams that we all have inevitably experienced over the course of our lives.
I honestly don’ know if there has been a more timely podcast than this episode, especially given everything that we have experienced individually and collectively over the last year. We’ve all experienced so much loss over the last year and Litsa does such a great job at walking us down a path of healing throughout this episode.
And just so you have a little more information about What’s Your Grief, their mission is to promote grief education, exploration, and expression in both practical and creative ways. The achieve this mission by providing: Resources related to understanding and coping with grief and loss Guidance on how to help a grieving friend or family member Online courses about grief and supporting someone who’s grieving Resources, education, and training for grief counselors, grief volunteers, and other professionals working in fields related to grief and loss.

So whether you are grieving, supporting someone who is grieving or a grief professional, they have something for you.It’s truly an astonishing and helpful platform. I’m not just saying this, but it really is something special.

Ep. 24 - Katie Horwitch - Reconnecting To Your Passion
On today’s episode, I had the privilege of sitting down and talking with my friend Katie Horwitch who is probably one of the most well-spoken individuals I've ever come across.
Her words, her stories, her teaching points, everything that she talked about throughout this podcast is so powerful, relatable, encouraging and healing.
On this episode we talk a lot about what it looks like to reconnect to your passion especially during a time that we can feel so disconnected in life and then towards the second half of the episode, Katie courageously opens up about how her deep need to control things in life eventually lead to an eating disorder and she then goes on to talk about how and what it looked like to work through that season of life.
Katie is amazing and she is doing such amazing work in the world and I’m so so grateful for her.
Just to give you a little background, Katie is a writer, speaker, mindset coach, and the founder of WANT: Women Against Negative Talk, a platform that gives women tips, tools, motivation, and inspiration to move forward fearlessly by shifting their negative self-talk patterns.

Ep. 23 - 4 Ways To Know If Your Living Out You're Truth or Making A Huge Mistake
I think that we can all agree, especially if you’re someone who is trying to do your best of tuning in and honoring your truth, the still small voice guiding your life, that there inevitably comes a time when your soul comes knocking on your hearts door and whispering to you that this is the way. Like, this is the direction that you’re supposed to go.
And often times, the way, it’s not clear, it’s full of uncertainty, it doesn’t always make sense and therefore you can’t really explain why you’re about to do what you’re about to do.
First off, if you are in that season I just want to say that I honor you because I think it takes a tremendous amount of courage to even acknowledge that path. And secondly, if you’re there or you’ve been there before, then you know that honoring your truth during these decisions is really grey because it’s not always clear and usually there’s some sort of metaphorical death happening. A letting go. A walking away. And it can be hard.
And I don’t know about you, but for me, there are times when I can’t help but to wonder if I’m actually hearing my soul’s call, my truth, that’s leading me on my journey of finding my way, or is this just a rogue feeling and in all actuality I’m about to blow up my life and make a huge mistake.
Well, lucky for us, there are those who have gone before us who have laid out questions and wisdom that can help mirror back to us, if we’re willing to be honest with ourselves, if in fact that what we are hearing or the decision that we’re about to make is actually our truth or if there is something else happening.
In this short 25 minute podcast, I cover 4 questions, or thoughts, that can help you navigate this season of life.

Ep. 22 - Dr. Caroline Leaf - Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess
Welcome back to another episode of Finding Your Way. Today on the show, I had a chance to sit down and talk to Dr. Caroline Leaf about her new book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess.
Dr. Leaf holds a very special place in my heart and you’ll hear about it it at the beginning of the episode, but after this podcast and having the chance to sit and talk with her more, I just have the utmost respect and adoration for her. The work that she has dedicated her life has not only changed my life but I know it has changed the lives of so many others.
And, I say this with 100% confidence, I know that it can also change your life.
You know, when I first started this healing journey after walking away from the NFL, I came across a quote by Victor Frankl, and maybe you’ve heard it, but it says between stimulus and response is a space and in that space is the power to choose our response. And, in our response, lies our growth and freedom.
That’s so powerful and I bring up that quote because alot of what Dr. Leaf’s book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess and also this podcast episode is about is essentially the step by step process on how you can began to recognize that sliver of space between stimulus and response in your own life and begin to choose your response in a way that is conducive to the life that you actually want to live.
To sum it all up in a sentence, it’s really all about learning how to take back the power to your life.
In her book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess, Dr. Leaf breaks down the five action-oriented steps called the Neurocycle, that will help you eliminate the root of anxiety, depression and intrusive thoughts so that you can begin to build a healthy new and automated neural network inside of your brain.
It’s powerful, powerful, powerful. We hear all about you know, doing the work, and this is the work. Literally, the playbook of how to do the work.
And if you don’t know, Dr. Leaf is a communication pathologist and a cognitive neuroscientist and what I love about her is that she has the uncanny ability to take the very complex science and all the intricacies around what is happening in our brains as we are not only traumatized, or experience trauma in life, but also as we are healing and she is able to break it down in a way that enables you to comprehend, and understand and to see more clearly what is actually happening.
Another cool thing that you should know is that Dr. Leaf was one of the first in her field to study how the Brian can change with directed mind input. She has helped hundreds of thousands of students and adults learn how to use t heir mind to detox and grow their brain, helping them succeed in every area of their lives, including school, university and the workplace.

Ep. 21 - Antonio Neves - Stop Living On Autopilot
Hey friends! Welcome back to another episode of Finding Your Way.
On today's episode, I had the chance to sit down and talk to Antonio Neves.
And, on this episode we talk about leaning into joy and how we have the tendency stiff-arm life in order to protect ourselves from getting hurt, let down or disappointed.
Then we move on to really getting down to the basics of what it looks like to embody the trust that is needed to begin to wake up to this truth that we are enough right here, right now.
Then, about midway through, Tony gives some practical advice on what it looks like to follow the still small voice that’s guiding your life and how to find the courage to say yes to that whisper that’s leading you deeper into your destiny.
There is so much goodness inside of this podcast and I just know that you’re going to get something from it.
With that being said, to give you a better understand of who Tony is then you should know that he’s the author of 4 different books including, Stop living on autopilot: take responsibility for your life and rediscover a bolder, happier you. He’s also the host of a well known podcast called The Best Thing, where he talks with leaders about the best thing that has happened to them that would never appear on a resume.

“The path that has been there all along”
That line is truly what hits home the strongest for me in Caleb’s show. The more he dives deeper into his own journey and the insight he pulls from others in his interviews shines the light on the way we have had in us all along. The constant pursuit, the endless endeavor, the journey we go on to find ourselves within ourselves is exactly what he expands on in this podcast. Thank you brotha for all you do and provide for me on and off the air! -Chase Chewning
Caleb’s podcast is incredible. All the episodes are great. Just finished listening to the episode 13 “How I’m Dealing With My Depression”. I appreciate Caleb’s vulnerability and transparency with his depression. As a mental health provider myself, I wish there were more men like Caleb who normalize depression and their experience. Thank you, Caleb. I see you and I hear you. You’re not alone. Sending you love and light my friend ❤️
New episode is awesome. Totally relate to it
