3 Steps to Self-Love

#1 Write Down What You Do Like About Yourself
     You have at least one thing that you do like about yourself. Maybe you're a
     good speller, excellent at math, or a great cook. Perhaps the one thing you
     like about yourself is your hair, eyes, or the fact that you're tall. No matter
     what it is, write it down. Concentrate on the good not the bad.
#2 Think Positive (Really!)
      If there is something new or different that you need to do, it's sometimes easy
      to think negatively--this is usually fear. It's OK to sometimes have fear, but
      it should not stop you from having a happy life. Tell yourself that everything
      will work out fine.

#3 Join a Group
      When I was in high school, I had a hard time making friends, so I joined the
      drama club. I made a lot of friends, and I got to do things that I would've
      never done if I'd been sitting at home feeling sorry for myself.

3 Steps to Self-Love


Monday, September 17, 2012


There are different types of self-consciousness. There is the type when it's one part
of you that you're self-conscious about, the type when you're self-conscious about
almost everything about yourself, and the type when you feel as if someone is always
watching you or judging you.

Self-Conscious About One Thing 
When I was about twelve, I noticed my oily nose. This bothered me so much that I'd
constantly be applying some sort of oil absorber on my nose. I'm still self-conscious
about it, but I'm not obsessed with my oily nose the way I used to be.

Self-Conscious About Multiple Things
At one time I was also self-conscious about my teeth, my hair, how my breasts didn't
seem to be getting big enough...I could go on and on. You shouldn't worry too much
about things that you can't control like how fast your hair grows or how big your
breasts should be.   

Self-Conscious About What Other People Think 
of You
Do you always feel as if someone is watching you or judging you? Someone probably
is, but you can't constantly worry about it. When someone is looking at you it's not
always a bad thing. 
This person may..  *think you're attractive.
                            *like what you're wearing.
                            *want to ask you out.
                            *think you look familiar.
                            *wonder who you are or what your name is.

5 Signs It's Time For a New Job

You know in your heart when it's time to quit, but in case you're still in denial, here
are 5 signs it's time for a new job.

1. It takes you awhile to get out of your car.
      Taking deep breaths you dread going into the building, and you wonder how
      many more days you can do this.

2. You have no motivation.
      Tasks that you used to love doing, you now hate them. You'd rather sit in the
      break room and do nothing.

3. The entire time you're at work you wish you 
    were someplace else.
     You feel as if going to the doctor would give you more joy.

4. Your job isn't fun anymore.
      Work feels like a chore. The love that you had for your job is long gone.

5. When you leave work you're in a bad mood.
      You feel as if you just wasted eight hours of your life. You're cranky and
       no one wants to be around you.
