This book is a hybrid between social reality and spiritual reality. Women are conditioned to set expectations about age and time, which blurs our self-worth. Readers will utilize the Timeless Practice workbook inside to break social constraints, decide an outcome, and take back their lives. Time is a feeling, an expression, an experience that equates to our existence. The book features women from all walks of life, each with their own successes, trials, and shared experiences: entrepreneurs, ex-corporate hustlers, mothers, professionals, authors. What they share is a collective consciousness of time, and the meaning it holds for each of them. The majority of the population spends their time in the hustle, bustle, and demands of society. For the authors, though, various life experiences made them look at their time here on earth more critically and provoked the start of their purposeful journey. Contributors include Stephanie Butler, Julie Chessell, Sherri Marie Gaudet, Sara Gustafson, Charmaine Hamp, Tina Kalogrias, Yomi Marcus, Janelle Mason, Karem Mieses, Effie Mitskopoulos, Natashia Newhouse, Charleyne Oulton, Maryann Perri, Deidre Slattery, Jessica Stewart, Habiba Jessica Zaman, Diana Zurbuchen.

Featured Reviews

From's Editor's Bookshelf review: Dear Time, Are You On My Side? is a taste of what women can bring to the world when we’re working from an open heart, together.

And while Dear Time (a compilation of blog post-esque chapters written by a wildly diverse group of women, which includes legitimately inspirational workbook components that, against all the odds in the self-help universe, manage not to be cheesy) is being marketed to women, I’d argue that individuals of any gender have a great deal to gain from its pages. I found myself teary-eyed, introspective, and grateful while reading Dear Time, more than I’ve been engaging any of the other books I’ve reviewed thus far.

Dear Time, Are You On My Side? isn’t a literary masterpiece. It also isn’t a prescriptive how-to guide (though some of the contributors’ chapters include action steps). It’s an invitation to think and feel brought to us by women who are embodying and exploring all different types of womanhood (and personhood).

Some of my favorite elements of the anthology include its emphasis on exploring and fostering spirituality, intuition, collaboration, the mind–body connection, and an understanding of money as a form of energy.

Dear Time will be appreciated by anyone who’s ready to step into a new relationship with time, and those who are eager to be in communion with other deep thinkers, deep feelers, and unbridled creators through the written word.

Dear Time was a good-read essays from different types of women (and some exercises to do, which I like very much!) in different paths and ages. Dear Time asked and provided answer that yes, when we do things 'correctly', time is on our sides.

This amazing book will have you examining the concept of time from a variety of perspectives that will help give you clarity on your own relationship with time, how you can make it more fluid, and how the passage of time is immaterial to your wants and needs as you grow and mature within your own self, in your relationships, in what you choose to do, and in your purpose in life. The book creator has brought together 19 women with unique relationships and insights into time based on their own life experience. The book is divided into five sections: What is Time?, Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, Fear is a Time Robber, Heartbeat to Heartbeat, and Change the Course of Time. The end of each section has a place for you to reflect on all the concepts of the part as well as free journal; at the end of the book, you're given space to rewrite your life from a new perspective on time.

Each of the authors shares a part of their own story, reflecting on time and what it has meant, means, and will mean to them. They talk about shifts in perspective and knowledge gained. Some of these are dense reads, while others are very straightforward to get through. I found all to be valuable, and each got me thinking. The exercises at the end of each section help anchor the concepts that have been discussed and give clarity on what they can mean to help you live your best life.

Here are some topics in the book: Living Timelessly--Ego and Time are Not our Enemies; Managing the Me in Time; But When is the Timing in Life Ever Right?; Life, Not According to Plan; The Wait is Over... Your Time is Now; and A Premature Lesson in the Value of Time.

If you find yourself grappling with issues of time, from time management to greater concepts like feeling like you're running out of time because of your age, this book will give you a more in-depth perspective and a way to reframe the concept of time is so that we end the struggle with it and instead work with as we evolve on our road to becoming the best person we can be.
