Here's to You...

Challenge Day 17: Something You Wish You Could Tell Someone

This message is for all teenage girls, so LISTEN UP!

You are beautiful, smart, and important. You are special, just the way you are. The quirks, craziness, and differences about you make you AWESOME. Don't compare yourself to other people, be you. You don't need to be THE best.... just be YOUR best. If you have opinions & feelings about something, let people know! Have confidence. No one is quite like you, and what a blessing that is. You are free to be who you want, do what you want, and live life to the fullest. You may not have the same talents as another person, but you are still talented! Let that talent blossom and share it with others. 

Be kind to those around you. Get to know people, talk to those you think share no similarities with yourself. I've learned that in one way or another, everyone shares common likes, dislikes, pain, happiness, hobbies, etc. Be interested in other people. Be genuine. You can make more friends in 5 minutes by being interested in what they're doing, than you could in 5 years trying to get people interested in you. You can never meet/know too many people. Who knows? You might just find yourself a new best friend.

Speaking about best friends, love your family will ya? Spend ten minutes a day with your brother or sister. Ask them how their day went, take them with  you when you run errands, or just give them a hug and tell them how important they are to you. Get to know your mom and dad. Find out what they liked to do in high school. What vegetable they hated to eat when they were growing up. Learn all you can about them. Love Them. Talk to them. They love you so much and want to be close to you. It will help you out so much one day, I guarantee it.

Now about boys. Don't be in some huge rush to find "THE ONE". You still have so much life ahead of you, enjoy your teenage  years while they are still here. At seventeen, you shouldn't be narrowing down your list of potential husbands, you should be building it. Get to know and build friendships with the boys at your school. Don't go into it looking for romance or love, but for a genuine friendship. I promise you, there will be a lot less drama and a lot more happiness. When you do start thinking about marriage, make sure you know what you are looking for in a husband. Don't settle for less. Make sure you really know all about him. Take your time deciding if that's whats best, because that decision will literally be one of the biggest. 

Finally, don't be afraid to take some risks. Failing does not mean you are a failure. It means that you are willing to take a leap of faith without knowing what's going to happen mid-jump. Try new things, meet new people, and put yourself out there. Don't be afraid of other's opinions or criticisms. Accomplish your goals and work towards your dreams, because YOU are amazing. 

Love P
