Go Big or Go Bust: Day 156 (the power of the positive)

So I guess the cat is out of the bag when it comes to the truth about me and my inner voice, that it's a very lively relationship.  Today I had an unusual experience with it.

Someone recently paid me a compliment on something fundamental.  (It's neither false nor real modesty that's stopping me from saying what it was - am just blanking out.)

Generally songs get stuck in my head, sometimes random meaningless phrases.  Today I hit the jackpot and this compliment got stuck in my head.  Hours later, I can still feel the glowy, relaxed, hopeful feeling after hearing my inner voice replay this compliment.  Who knows why this positive affirmation replaced the usual who-do-you-think-you-are self-criticism, but it did.  Effortlessly. 

I have a sneaking suspicion that it's related to this image/intention of 'owning the room'.  I get images.  Or they get me.  This 'owning the room' one feels like it could change my life.
