“Mediocre.” “Procrastinator.” “Wavering.” This is how my friend described herself — and I was stunned. She is, in fact, successful, beautiful and somehow manages to bake goodies for her family in her free time. Yes, bake! (I am baffled, because I do not understand baking, nor how one finds time). But, on this day the negative self-talk was winning, seemingly steam-rolling all of her successes.
