Becky and Diana challenge us to adopt a new perspective and look at the Calendar differently.

  • It is easy to get stuck in a “Lack” mindset with time when we are following an arbitrary calendar that doesn’t match our time needs.
  • Time flows if we allow it.
  • Our life calendars don't run from January through December, so we can reorganize the calendar in a way that suits us.
  • Time on our calendars isn’t real until we act on it.
  • Working with our own natural rhythms helps our lives run smoother.
  • Every day is a new day!
  • It's hard to value time that we didn't create or organize.
  • Age is an arbitrary number.
  • We don't have to buy into cultural restrictions about certain ages are perceived.
  • Your mindset determines your mental age, not the calendar!

Becky and Diana discuss the things we do that lead us to taking on too much. 

  • The need for control is one of the biggest factors in taking on too much.
  • When we push ourselves too hard it can take longer to achieve what we set out to do.
  • A key to avoiding taking on too much is to find more time.
  • We have more control over our time than we think we do.
  • Make time work for you, not the other way around.
  • The sense of overwhelm can be attributed to confining ourselves to arbitrary time frames, like the end of our year occurring in December.
  • Ask yourself, “What is most important?” and then do it.
  • We get to decide what stays and what goes in our life.
  • Often we take on too much to avoid what we need to do.
  • Some things don’t need to be dealt with, they simply need to be let go.

Becky and Diana analyze the nature of grounding and feeling grounded. 

  • Being ungrounded can feel like flying without a place to land.
  • We can’t fly forever.
  • It is important to have both a launching point and a landing point.
  • Grounded is the only state we can both pause and launch from.
  • Grounding gives us a sense of belonging and ownership of our space.
  • If you know who you are, and trust yourself, you are grounded.
  • When we are internally grounded we can take the feeling with us.
  • When we find people in our world who accept us as we are they serve as a grounding force.
  • If we trust our physical environment then it is a grounding space.
  • To help us get grounded: Spend time in nature. Meditate. Shut off the internal dialog. Connect with water or the actual ground.

Becky and Diana talk about who and what we trust, or maybe need to learn to trust.

The Process:

If we aren’t ready for the process, it’s really hard to embrace it.

Ourselves:

When we are comfortable with something it is easier to trust it. Developing our skills improves our ability to trust ourselves.

Our Guts:

When we learn to trust our gut instincts it becomes easier to fend off those shoulds and fears. It makes it easier to act on our own instincts.

Others:

Everyone seems to have an opinion about our lives. It is important to cultivate people who want the best for us.

Universe:

The heart of trusting the Universe is staying open to what’s out there so we can get out of our own way.

We can only trust The Process and The Universe when we trust ourselves.
