Week One Inner Mean Girl Cleanse – Gossip

I'm on the road to reinventing myself through the Inner Mean Girl Cleanse. My Inner Mean Girl (IMG) has been around way too long and has prevented me from being as happy as I want to be. Behind the smiles and laughs, there's a lot of sadness because I judge myself all the time. My Inner Mean Girl speaks up even at the best times in my life, the times when I feel powerful, joyful, nurturing, connected to others, etc. I've made the decision to cleanse myself of my Inner Mean Girl with the 40 Day Cleanse.

I Have An Inner Mean Girl And I Hate Her!

I have a confession to make - I have an Inner Mean Girl and I hate her! She tells me that what I do isn't good enough, that I'm ugly and fat especially when I look at photos and videos of myself. She yells at me too so I can't hear the compliments that people give me, or that quiet voice that's telling me to slow down because I need to rest. She makes me compare myself to other women about how great they look, how organized they are and what great mothers they are. That Inner Mean Girl has been with me for a long time and she needs to be stopped. She's sabotaging my life. I want to be … [Read more...]

Chile Earthquake and Hawaii Tsunami

The earthquake in Chile was a magnitude of 8.8 and will cause tsunamis in Hawaii, New Zealand and Australia, among other places. I didn't sleep well last night and heard about the earthquake live. I watched a bit of CNN and dreamed about it for the rest of the morning. When I awoke I again turned to CNN and was glued to the TV. It's hard to tell what is exactly going on in Chile.
