00:57:25 AletaW: Good realization Ellen
00:58:00 Jennifer Janes: I love that idea and actually thought about doing it myself.
00:59:42 Loren Barrows: I need to drop for a meeting. Have a great day everyone!
00:59:56 AletaW: I want to do that but do not want to go by myself. I live by myself, Don’t want to go away by myself.
00:59:57 Alex Wang: That’s such a good point Ellen! ‘About me’ vs ‘being selfish’
00:59:59 Craig Pais: I also do too. So glad you were able to find some clarity Ellen. Take care everyone
01:00:39 Corina Aoi: Oh love that…what makes me a human-BEING vs. a human-DOING!
01:00:53 Krystle Reniguntala: Ellen, thanks so much for sharing.
01:01:28 AletaW: Maybe going away by myself will help me start somethings that I have not done at home…
01:01:43 Corina Aoi: That resonates with me as a parent for sure.
01:02:26 Karen OKeefe-Payne: Love your Human Being vs Human Doing as well! I have always touted that I am a doer not a donor…but taking some time out to do things for yourself it wonderful! I always put my family first
01:04:23 Karen OKeefe-Payne: But decided I am taking a vacation this summer with a girlfriend oversees…Mom guilt sucks– so short answer is if you are happy– you’re kids see it!
01:04:34 Abigail Boudreaux: What a great shift, Sandy! Moving that critic to the backseat rather than being driven around by it 🙂
01:04:55 Ellen Guthrie: My inner critic is named Chad.
01:05:11 Karen OKeefe-Payne: Bad Chad!
01:05:22 Dana Wakeley: On making decisions.. I tend to put a lot of weight on other people’s input when making decisions. I’m working on making more decisions for myself and trusting my gut.
01:06:57 AletaW: Feel the wave
01:07:40 Ellen Guthrie: I read this series, and it was fantastic insight.
01:08:00 AletaW: What was the name of the series again?
01:08:49 Corina Aoi: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/03/style/childfree-women.html?searchResultPosition=1
01:09:21 Ellen Guthrie: Thanks, Corina!
01:09:29 AletaW: Thanks Corina
01:12:41 Tess Anajovich: This reminded me of an Interview Oprah did with Dolly Parton on why she doesn’t have children: https://www.today.com/popculture/dolly-parton-opens-oprah-winfrey-about-not-having-kids-t198779
01:14:22 Ellen Guthrie: “It was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself. I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole.” -Rupi Kaur
01:16:11 Alison Barsan: Thank you for sharing Ellen!
01:17:00 AletaW: That is a good point Alex. I wrote off last Friday.

01:19:15 Krystle Reniguntala: I love the themes too. Great idea.
01:20:44 Brittany Burns: Great insights, Alex!

01:22:53 Alex Wang: Thanks everyone, I feel uncomfortable and vulnerable to share but your kind words have made it all better 🙂
01:23:04 Karen OKeefe-Payne: The Marble jar!
01:23:14 Belma McCaffrey: What do you feel called to take action on if anything?
01:23:56 AletaW: Going away even if it is by myself
01:23:57 Jennifer Janes: I want to focus on self-care and stopping the guilt of having to do everything for others.
01:24:16 Dana Wakeley: I’d like to try out think time!
01:24:58 Alison Barsan: I am going to try the marble jar every time I make a decision or action for MYSELF!
01:25:21 AletaW: Marble jar too
01:25:48 Debbie Duncan: Marble jar for me as well. Love the idea of something visual.
01:26:08 Belina Pignataro: more focus on being than doing
01:26:57 Sandy Cooke: Awareness of internal resistance to tasks. Is it an away feeling or a toward feeling?
01:27:03 Ellen Guthrie: “Keep being exactly who I am” instead of “keeping doing what you’re doing”
01:28:25 AletaW: Thanks Ellen
01:30:22 Debbie Duncan: thank you!
