As a few of you may know, I decided to combat my skin-picking disorder by attempting the no-picking 30-day challenge more than a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately, I have failed this challenge. Miserably.
There are numerous reasons I could point to for my failure, but, I had to say the biggest and most surprising of reason for my failure was that my resolve just completely disappeared. I stopped caring. I don’t think I’ve ever had that state of mind in regards to my picking before. But, let’s move on, I rather not bother you with personal internal battles that have come and gone.
I have gotten some motivation back, and with that, an idea for an edited challenge that I think will suit my needs better.
Now, you’re probably thinking: “how the hell do you ‘edit’ a no-picking challenge? It’s pretty simple as is.” And you are certainly right. I guess I should better state the change is in how I will go about completing the challenge.
I call it…cue the drumroll.
I know, creative.
But wait, there’s a hashtag!? Oh god, Nadine, you’ve fallen for that trend too–Lemme cut in here and say there’s a reason for the hashtag!
I decided to put my new twitter account to use and make this challenge TWITTER based. How? Well…
Everyday for 30 days, I will upload a bare faced picture.
For all my wordpress/tumblr folks, instead of clogging my blog with a picture everyday, I’ll compile pictures each week.
Another reason for the hashtag is so that other people can join in on the fun, if they like. We can bond over how we want to claw off our faces. Oh, the fun indeed.
For myself, I will begin this updated challenge…tomorrow, July 9th 2014!
