Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • The importance of surrendering to the outcome of any given situation. Letting go of our control and just being present to what is.

  • What would it look like to give people space to be who they are instead of trying to make them who we want them to be.

  • Tapping into intention and applying it to our way of being.

  • The practice of surrendering over and over again.

  • Learning how to process our own emotions is a life skill we need to develop.

  • The danger of using relationships to seek validation in our own lives.

  • Surrendering to our own imperfection.

  • What it feels like to be honest with yourself about who you are.

  • How to begin to understand our generational stories we carry with us, and how to surrender in our complex relationships with our mothers.

In Casey's Voice:

“I'm going to surrender to whatever shows up.”

“We are all in the creation of the experiences we are having.”

“What real self-esteem is is a learning and appreciation of who you are through your experience.”

“It's an emotional experience to be in relationship.”
