15: Friday Thoughts - The conversations with ourselves
If I was going to do an 18 minute Ted talk this might be the topic I would choose to talk about. There is no one we have more conversation with on a daily basis than ourselves. Most people don't realize how much it is effecting them subconsciously. How much more life can be fulfilled and peaceful just by becoming more aware of how we talk to ourselves in our heads. This 8 minute episode just touches on this topic a little bit.
