One of my new favorite blogs Pennies in my Pocket is hosting a Self Esteem Saturday or Sunday event and I thought I'd participate!
Here is the info (taken directly from her blog): Assignment to you fabulous ladies: So today, turn the TV off from all those 'Hollywood magazine' type shows, put down that magazine that's harping on your out-of-date clothing and tell me something that has given you a higher self-esteem. That's right. Brag about yourself or share something that someone said nice about you or whatever makes you feel better about yourself. Take a break from pulling yourself down when you look at the mirror first thing in the morning. Nobody should look in the mirror first thing in the morning anyway.
Question of the Day What has boosted your self-esteem?
What really has boosted my self-esteem is my ability to run. Getting out on the pavement and going for a nice long jog helps me physically and mentally. When I'm out running, everything just melts away and I can see clearly. I'm not clouded by anything and it gives me the confidence to believe in myself.
