Sorry I dropped the ball. I never finished the A to Z Challenge! There have been – what – two times I think during this challenge that I got behind. Things are coming out of the woodwork here.
Tag: A to Z Blog Challenge 2016
ONE MORE AFTER THIS! I can’t believe it – I almost didn’t make it. But here we go…
Thanks to Jen Seriously for the Y topic idea: You Can.

I would like to take a moment to say a huge “THANK YOU” to the coordinators and teams of the 2016 A to Z Blog Challenge, and to all of you who have visited this blog.
I feel like many of my “confidence” posts during the A to Z challenge seem to repeat the same things, over and over.
Maybe that’s just because I see a common thread – an underlying truth that can be applied to many different self-confidence challenges: you need to be the one who likes yourself; no one else can provide the confidence you lack.
Don’t worry what everyone else thinks of you – work on how you think of you.
OK this should catch me up!! Whew.
Thanks to Alex Schuler for the U topic idea: Uplifting Experiences.
Charity and generosity are wonderful, as long as we don’t forget to take care of ourselves and our families first, and as long as we don’t feel guilty when we don’t have time left over for strangers.
How much of our self-image and self-worth comes from society?
Our society appears to reward certain types of people (with fame and fortune), and those of us who don’t meet those ideal standards feel less worthy.
I’m sorry, my friends!! I needed to de-stress, so I boycotted my computer for several days. I’m way behind on posts, let alone on checking out blogs and comments and such.
Thanks to Jen Seriously for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Respect yourself.
Thanks to Cassie from Mommy, RN for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Quick to Judge.
If you are low on confidence, every single thing that comes your way is going to feel like an attack. If you jump on that initial reaction too quickly, chaos ensues.
Thanks to Cassie from Mommy, RN for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Positive Attitude.
If you tend to gossip or complain (don’t we all at times), you can get in so much trouble and you tend to get down on yoursef and others. Then you realize you picked on others which makes you more down on yourself.
O, O, O. O, I’m sO behind. I’m getting behind in my posts, and I have new visitors I’d like to visit back.
O, how will I ever catch up?
While it is smart to be raising these, and other, questions, we still don’t have any formula to magically transform our doubt into confidence.
But it has to start somewhere, and sometimes looking at it from another angle can help.
This is about knowing your limits [without short-changing yourself] and not feeling guilty about acknowledging that limits do indeed exist. It’s okay not to be Superman.
Drat!! I officially fell behind!! Here’s yesterday’s post…
Thanks to Jen Seriously for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Love yourself? Nope, just be comfortable.
Thanks to Alex Schuler for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Knowledge: you’re not Einstein.
Thanks to Cassie from Mommy, RN for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Journey to Confidence.
Thanks to Alex Schuler for suggesting today’s topic: honesty versus abasement (putting yourself down). In the spirit of yesterday’s post, I’ll try to keep this one somewhat short as well.
