Although they are occasionally distracted by the presence of a rare snow storm in Georgia, Becky and Diana take the time to talk about why they are committed to seizing the day and how they do it.

  • When we are married to our personal agendas, we can miss out on the opportunities that are right in front of us.
  • What we focus on we get.
  • Leaving ourselves open to random moments and events allow shifts to happen.
  • Seize The Day = Ride The Moment
  • Break free from the stranglehold of expectations – both yours and other people’s.
  • When we release tension by doing something fun or different, our ability to focus increases.
  • We choose which way our life shifts.
  • “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” - Darius Rucker https://youtu.be/GkZIF4mmztc

Becky and Diana talk about the critical importance of managing our energy, especially around the holidays. 

  • We have to prepare ourselves for events and manage our energy accordingly.
  • To operate at peak energy, we need to check our energy levels over the course of an event.
  • We can leave an event or take a break if we feel our energy waning.
  • It’s critical to find ways to replenish our energy that honors our energy profile and personality.
  • Before we attend an event, we can check the language of the invitation for clues about the kind of energy we can expect from the event.
  • Visualization is a great tool to protect ourselves from unwanted energy sucks.
  • It’s critical to know how to take care of ourselves, then do it.
  • After attending a bad event (an energy suck), we can release any negative by writing about it or talking to a friend.

Becky and Diana discuss the feelings and emotions of feeling beat-up and reveal strategies for coping with those feelings. 

  • Triggers can bring forgotten and buried things to the surface of our minds and force us to deal with them.
  • Managing multiple expectations can leave us feeling exhausted.
  • It is important to choose our battles.
  • The Lack mindset and the Victim mentality go hand in hand.
  • When we push through difficult things quickly instead of dealing with them, they will pop up again, maybe even in different ways.
  • We have to go inside ourselves and slow down and deal with the yucky stuff.
  • To thrive, we must learn to identify triggers that can pop up and leave us feeling beat-up.
  • Mind/body connected activities, like yoga, help us make internal connections that heal our beat-up places.

Becky and Diana talk about the value of boundaries. 

  • Boundaries give us a framework to move more smoothly through our lives.
  • We set boundaries to guard ourselves against others and against ourselves!.
  • When we don’t set boundaries we leave ourselves open to having our lives breached.
  • Prioritizing what we do and how we do it is one strategy to create beneficial boundaries.
  • Once we’ve compromised our own boundaries, it becomes easier to do it again.
  • We can experience growth as we enforce our boundaries.
  • Boundaries prevent burnout.
  • Clearly stated boundaries can help manage conflict.
  • Assigning value to your boundaries gives them more weight.
