Self-esteem Challenge: Day 17

This blog challenge was developed by If you missed the introduction or want to see a summary of all the questions, go here.

Day 17:
Another thing you like about yourself.
What do you do to feel calmer when you’re stressed?

Another thing I like about myself?! Umm…..I don’t know, I think I’ve covered it all already. Let’s see….my ears? I am thankful I have healthy ears….*knocks on wood*. I’ve never had an ear infection or any ear pain. Sure, I’ve gotten water logged, but it was never that bad. I have my ears pierced (one hole each) and I’ve never had trouble with that. My ears are tiny too. I feel a bit like a fairy tale character when people exclaim “My, what small ears you have!”. I know a lot of people who are self-conscious about their ears for some reason or another, or people who constantly get ear infections, have to wear plugs to swim or have had to have surgery for something. I like my ears because they don’t give me something else to stress about. So thank you ears for behaving yourselves.

I eat cake and watch a movie to calm myself down. The movie depends on the level of stress I’m feeling. A low stress level requires a feel-good movie. One of those movies I’ve watched a million times. Sometimes I draw with my cake and feel-good movie. If it’s really high stress, I have to watch a movie I haven’t seen before. If I haven’t seen it, I’m more likely to get immersed in it and shut my brain off. Turning my brain off for a little while is the only way I can cope with stress. Most of the time, things are a little clearer when I turn my brain back on. I just have to hope the movie is good enough to distract me.
