Catch up: Self-esteem Challenge

Surprise surprise! I completely goofed. I was on vacation for a week in NYC. I knew I wouldn’t have internet access. The friend we were staying with doesn’t have wi-fi. So, I wrote out my last self-esteem challenge posts ahead of time and set them to post on the right days. This was the first time I set posts to publish instead of immediately publishing myself. I set the date and time on each post, making sure to save changes….but I didn’t realize you had to hit publish too. Woops! So nothing published while I was away…doh! Since I’m a little tired of the self-esteem challenge, I published them all at once. You can find the entries here if you missed them:

Day 30

I’m not sure how I feel about the self-esteem challenge. I don’t think my self-esteem has improved, but it made me think about the good things about myself, which I appreciate and it did make me feel good at the time. Maybe I need to make a list of good things about myself (with no excuses) to refer to every once and a while to lift my spirits a bit. In the end, it was a good exercise and a good reminder that I’m not all bad.

NYC was fun. Maybe I’ll post more about it later. It was busy and awkward. We couldn’t have packed more in if we tried! It was go go go! By awkward, I mean four people crammed into a tiny apartment with a toilet that kept plugging for a week. For a depressed, anxious introvert, space and privacy are necessities! I survived though and have some fun memories!

I hope you all had a good week. I’m now off to catch up on your posts and tweets 🙂

    ‘Maybe I need to make a list of good things about myself (with no excuses) to refer to every once and a while to lift my spirits a bit.’ – I think that is an excellent idea! 🙂

    Glad you had fun on the trip! 🙂

    I was wondering about the radio silence! Glad you had a great trip:-)

    Glad you’re back! I have started scheduling all my posts and the associated Tweets! You have to edit the date on the publish immediately and then hit schedule. I have accidentally published posts too soon, by forgetting to change the month, but even that can be remedied! Even when I schedule Tweets, I don’t always manage to proofread them properly. I advertised a #newbogpost recently. :-; Sue
