Group Beyond Blue: Self-Esteem Forum #3

For his birthday on Tuesday, I handed Beyond Blue reader Larry Parker all rights to take over the Self Esteem Forum that we have done during the months of January and February. He did a super job with the last one, so he is now the official moderator of Self-Esteem Forum #3. Below is the invitation he sent out to Group Beyond Blue members of Beliefnet’s Community:

Group Beyond Blue will hold its third monthly “Self-Esteem Forum” at 10 a.m. EST on Saturday, March 1 (9 a.m. CST/Bnet time, 7 a.m. PST). People who sign up for the initial one-hour “draft” will be assigned a person for whom to write an affirmation letter. (That person will also RECEIVE a letter.) The first two months have had more than 20 people each participate. If you can’t make it at that time, simply leave a message with me on my homepage (Doxieman122), or leave a message in the combox of the SEF#3 post on Group Beyond Blue, by March 4 — saying that you couldn’t make it for the March 1 “draft,” but would like to be included in the chain of letters. I will gladly answer any questions regarding the process — again, I can be e-mailed via my homepage, Doxieman122.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday (or through the weekend and next week if you can’t make it early Saturday).
    Don’t forget to sharpen your pens (or at least keyboards) to practice your letter-writing skills!
    PS — If you’re fairly new to Beyond Blue, you may not have received an e-mail invitation from me — I’ll get you on the list next month, but this is most definitely an OPEN invitation for BB members!!

    What makes my goals go off into no where? Is self-esteem. I get all excited with my positive thinking & talking to Jesus to help then that old self-esteem comes into the picture & puts the negative thoughts in the way. How can I get better self-esteem in myself?

    I flipped through many posts which talk about Self Esteem and tips to build self esteem etc. However, building self esteem through games is not a new method and I really wonder why there were now posts about that topic. However, there is an excellent book called No props which has been wonderfully compiled by Mark Collard who is famous Australian Games strategist….
