Our “self-talk” is often our worst enemy, especially as we hit middle age. Suddenly we have all these words and preconceived ideas/expectations that are supposed to define us. Words like “change”, “relax” and “fine” are just a small example of the “dirty words” that can sometimes make us cringe and sabotage a path to success and joy. Mary Fran shares with us how small changes in how we talk to ourselves can yield positive results and ultimately more success. Mary Fran’s sense of humor, wisdom, and life experience combine to give us a realistic blue print of how to maneuver life’s challenges in a more positive way as we approach mid-life.
