Nice Girls Rule 60-Day Challenge Kick Off

Each day I will post a Blog/Twitter/Facebook message about one simple way to increase your nice girl power. These will be simple ways to make your corner of the world a better place and to celebrate who you are, a woman who has committed herself to giving nice a good name.

Nice Girls Rule Challenge Day 1:

Remove the word "bitch" from your vocabulary.

Thought of the day: OK, I know what your thinking. But your book has the word "bitch" in the title, so why should I remove the word from my vocab? While the word is in the title, I don't use the word flippantly in the book or in my life. I don't use it in casual conversation and I don't think it is an uplifting term to call women- whether they are nice or not. I can not tell you how many times I have heard the word bitch derogatorily used by The Real Housewives, on The Bad Girls Club, or even on seemingly benign shows like my fav- Top Chef. The sad truth is that nine times out of ten it is women who are predicating the stereotype that so many of us are trying to trump.

Remove it from your vocabulary, and watch how you can begin to assuage the discourse between you and the difficult women in your life.
