Meet Lucas. I have a feeling he only says good things to himself. He is the happiest person I’ve ever met (shhh he doesn’t know he’s a dog.) I think his mirror work may have something to do with it.
Years ago I used to follow Louise Hay‘s advice to look yourself in the mirror and say aloud, “I love you.” The irony, of course, is the more ridiculous you feel saying it, the more you may need it.
Both Louise and her co-author Cheryl Richardson have a mirror at their desks to help prepare themselves for a call or to write something. It is supposed to be a great way to have a conversation with yourself. A personal pep talk.
This weekend I bought a mirror for my desk. Anyone else want to experiment with me? I’ll let you know how it goes.
