It’s week two of the new year and things have been going so fast. Today, I’m not talking about anything related to being a virtual assistant or having a virtual assistant business.
This is personal. It has to do with the resolutions that we set and the one that’s been on my list until I just took it off and gave up. Similar to how someone might do weight loss goals and instead go for the healthy options.
Okay, I’m kind of stalling this is a tough one….
For years I’ve been a nail-biter. It started in the 4th grade due to stress from starting a new school. It has taken years for me to quit and when I say years, I mean I just recently quit, November 2015.
Over the years I’d hide my hands making sure they weren’t noticeable. Even on my wedding day I made sure the photography got no pics of my fingers. It’s a shameful and embarrassing habit. Nothing like being hand shamed at a nail salon when you have no idea what the other person is saying. Just knowing you’re being discussed as everyone stares at your hand is enough not to return.
Working from home, I haven’t had to worry about it because….you can’t see my hands 😉
December 2014 my hands were the worst they’d ever been. There’s no pic, not ready to show that one yet. In that moment I decided enough was enough. I would at least be conscious of what I was doing to myself.
October 2015 as a gift to myself, I decided to try yet another something to help me quit and guess what?……It actually worked!
Here’s my before and after:
I’m sharing this with you because you or someone you love or know may be dealing with this same issue. Nail-biters usually don’t seek advice from anyone on this. It’s a private matter and we don’t think non-nail-biters would understand. The thought makes me think back to the nail salon incident.
I hosted a special Blab for nail-biters, click here to watch!
Thanks so much for letting me share…
Make it FABULOUS!
Oh, I should tell you this, what helped me will cause your nails to be pretty so to my nail-biter guys, this is not the answer…sorry. For my ladies 🙂 the solution has no age limit, it can work for anyone from ages 2 and up.
