For years my Mum has extolled the virtues of positive self talk. I have tried it on and off but tended to feel a bit hokey saying "come on you can do it" out loud. I didn't want to be one of those people who must talk to themselves to get through the day...However, I have made more of an effort lately and find that even if I feel like a bit of a tool at first, it puts me in a better mood than listening to the more quiet voice in my head that continually whispers I am not good enough. So I'm running with the hokey thing and it is surprising to see the changes in myself. My amazing friend Nicole who I adore recently blogged about this article http://au.pfinance.yahoo.com/b/for-love-or-money/11/the-starving-artist and I smiled. I think it deserves a look...what is the harm? If I am one of those people who talks to myself from now on, so be it. But at least I am feeling good while I'm doing it!
