Christine Arylo takes the approach of teaching you how to be your own best friends--including how to talk to yourself and shut down the inner mean girl. Just becoming aware of how negative most of my self-talk is was really eye opening. I'd never to talk to my bff, daughter or sisters that way so why am I doing it to myself?
The exercises are, well, they can be uncomfortable but that's the point: to get out your comfort zone of bashing yourself, putting yourself last, taking yourself for granted, ignoring your own wants, needs and desires. And they're also fun. And she's funny. It's like she's sitting right there chatting with you throughout, being your biggest cheerleader.
I've only completed a couple of chapters so far but the shift in my own thinking is already pretty noticeable to me.
Looking forward to working my way through the rest of the book!

I will admit, I was a little suspicious of this book at first. It seemed silly and childish. But I was totally wrong! This book is so much fun and a truly life changing experience. Christine includes a lot of great content, concepts, and fun, empowering activities. I look forward to reading it and doing the assignments every morning - they never feel like drudgery, because they're playful and enjoyable. Plus, Christine is an extremely genuine and heartfelt person. Her loving spirit bleeds through the prose and she provides supplemental audio and videos and materials on her website for those who buy the book. This is a really fun adventure that's helped me reevaluate my relationship to myself and the world. It's given me power over my negative body image, my co-dependency, and taught me how to enjoy my own company. Plus, it's given me the inspiration to try new things that I was too scared to do before. Anyone who is looking to know, love, and be their authentic self more should take this daring adventure!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
