Let's admit it, we talk to ourselves... a lot! Most of the time we don't even know it, and even more often it’s negative, counterproductive, or simply not very uplifting! In such an image driven world, it's easy to allow other people's insecurities and self- doubts to seep into our spirits causing us to involve in negative self-talk and get down on ourselves and even become unmotivated. Be intentional about producing a positive inner-dialogue- don't be your own "mean girl"!
