Mastering Your Mean Girl by Melissa Ambrosini || 4

     Around the end of last year, I bought the audio book "You are a Badass" by Jen Sincero (Fabulous read, highly recommend).  I was able to receive the book for free thanks to a YouTuber's promo code for Audible.  Silly me followed the instructions to receive my free book and didn't think twice about the Audible account I had just signed up for and created.  A few months later, I checked my debit card statement to discover that OH MY GOSH! WHY HAS $15 BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM MY ACCOUNT EVERY MONTH!?  I had forgotten to cancel my membership after my free month was up.  I wasn't even shocked.
       Nevertheless, I could have reacted with frustration and anger but instead I thought to myself, maybe something good will come out of this besides the obvious lesson of "Get your crap together and pay attention, Sarah!".  Thanks to my payments, I had a handful of Audible credits and was able to come across my new little bible, "Mastering Your Mean Girl".

     Today, I followed through with my daily goal and listened to the whole first chapter, writing plenty of notes of course.  To whomever is reading, I 10/10 recommend this book if you're feeling stuck in life.  How fun would it be if we made our ways through the book together?!  If you need convincing, I noted something she states in the first chapter...

     "You don't need to be trapped by that fear based mean girl voice inside your head, the one that constantly hisses that you're worthless and not good enough.  You don't need to live your life always worrying what other people think of you and don't need to live your life constantly seeking permission, approval, and acceptance from others.  Deep down, I know you this too.  You're a smart and savvy woman with a yearning for something more.  Otherwise, you wouldn't have picked up this book.  You know deep down in your heart that there's a more inspiring love filled way to live.  You know that it doesn't have to be the same old battle inside yourself day in and day out.  I'm here to hold your hand, to show you what's truly possible and guide you back to your truth.  There's no BS, no judgement.  Just plenty of real life strategies and wisdom.  It's all drawn from my own experience adn it's all steeped in heart felt love.  If you're ready to let go of the pain, sell your penthouse in fear town, and step into a new way of living, this book is for you.  This is not another seven steps to enlightenment book filled with self-help fluff and filler.  It's not a glossy guide that simply rehashes the same old stuff you've read time and time again and it's definitely not a quick fix hand book that promises big results but leaves you feeling completely confused as how to actually make it happen.  This is a book filled with real wisdom that will get you real results.  It's your no BS road map to living your wildest dreams and becoming wildly wealthy, fabulously healthy, and bursting with love."

Sounds absolutely perfect, right?  Now imagine this face telling it to you with a beautiful Australian accent.

     I've already fallen in love with her and her book and I'm beyond excited to hear the next chapter tomorrow.  Chapter one has been about her life story before getting to where she is today.  She was a professional dancer, actress, TV presenter, and occasional model.  She wasn't following her heart though and because of this, her life spiraled downward to eating disorders, depression, and excessive partying and drinking until she was eventually hospitalized with a severe skin issues.  In the hospital, she finally saw that something needed to change and from there she worked on herself everyday.  I'm already pumped up for what I'm going to hear about next tomorrow.


5/3/17

🗸 Listened to a chapter of "Mastering Your Mean Girl".
🗸 Jogged.
🗸 Exercised my calves, arms, and glutes.
🗸 Meditated twice for 3 minutes each.
🗸 Was not in the mood for yoga so I stretched.
🗸  Prayed a rosary and read some of the Bible.


Day four:

     The memories were loud this morning and throughout most of the day.  I found myself listening to old voicemail messages he'd leave me when he was getting back home from a party and I was already asleep.  I can't help but wonder if he's thinking about the past too.  Why'd I have to mess things up?  We were happy just three weeks ago.  Damnit.  Now I'm crying.  Pewwwwww.  
     I know that when we start talking again, it's going to be different.  I'll have to wrap my memories with love and gratitude and then let them go.  Maybe we'll make new ones but they won't be the same.  I'm telling myself that they'll be better.  I'm trying to be optimistic. 
     I miss the smell of him.  The scent is so strong when I'm wrapped in his arms with my nose nuzzled under his chin.  Laundry detergent, cinnamon, and honey combs.  Plan A: DISTRACTION! isn't working because I have nothing to distract myself.  I need an adventure.

  1. I really want to read this book too. The 15 dollars withdrawn from your account making you realize you need to get life together made me laugh. Maybe I will risk a free month? and take a listen at those books you recommend.
