    This is BIG! I also think it is very much needed in today’s American culture. We are all so busy trying to succeed that we won’t give ourselves a pat on the back for any victories. It’s just “well…about time you did this” or “yea, you got that part right but what about that over there?” I am guilty of a negative mind radio and I am often ashamed to admit it because I work in mental health. I should know better, right?

    Currently reading “Self-Compassion” by Kristin Neff and it addresses this very issue which seems to be incredibly common especially in women. Thanks for this wonderful post!

    This was a great post, Marion! There is something about your writing style that is so uplifting and cheerful. Even as a reader of your style blog, your posts seemed so happy. There’s a quote that i love by Roald Dahl:

    “A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

    You are a true beaut! Keep thinking good thoughs and congrats on all of your successes! :)

  5. Yeah I agree. Someone really needs to put that negative radio station off the air! Thank you so much for this post. It’s good to know that even the most positive/inspiring people have off days too! I hope you have a great time in Cancun! You’re amazing!
