Read my latest article at BlogHer.com, "The 40-Day Inner Mean Girl Cleanse: How It Tangled With My Outer Bitch and Lost":
I have a long history of negative self-talk, and, although I have been less harsh with myself in recent years, I still manage to be my own worst bully. So, when I came across The 40-Day Inner Mean Girl Cleanse one afternoon in late August, a six-week course hosted by co-creators Amy Ahlers and Christine Arylo, I thought it was probably a good idea to join up. My very recent commitment to sobriety, thoughts about positive personal revolution, and a strong desire to be kinder to myself made this seem like the right step to take.And it just went downhill from there.
Plus, The Inner Mean Girl Cleanse was free. I like free, and how could the over 7000 women who had already signed up to be a part of The Inner Mean Girl Revolution be wrong? I signed up for the six-week course and waited to see what my e-mail inbox would bring.
