Girls are a powerful, powerful force. When we stand together we have the potential to change the world. Seriously!
B.Y.O.G. – Be Your Own Girl
Believe in Yourself, Stand Up For Yourself
When you’re working on a group project at school and it seems like the rest of the group wants to do one thing and you don’t agree, what do you do? When you’re hanging out with one group of friends and they start to trash another friend, do you feel comfortable standing up for your friend? Standing up for your ideas and the people who are important to you can seem like a very scary thing when you are faced with people who don’t feel the same way.
It seems so easy for some people to voice an opinion that is different from a group or to speak up for themselves or someone else when they feel like something is unfair. But, for many of us, it’s sometimes really hard. A lot of times it’s hard because when we were little kids we were told to “be nice”, “share” and “be polite”. And sometimes it feels like disagreeing is not nice or polite. Sadly, it seems like girls are sometimes expected to not speak up and to go along and to keep the peace.
You’re imagining things!
Has anyone ever told you that you are imagining things? Well, from now on you can just proudly say, “Yes I am!”
So does that mean that daydreaming is a good thing to do? In a way, yes! Exercising your imagination is really important. When you let your imagination run wild it actually helps to make you smarter, be a better problem solver and is good for your social life too!! Taking time to let your imagination wander allows your brain to figure out new ways to solve problems and improves your creativity.
You know what comes from being creative, a good problem solver and a person who is comfortable socially? Confidence!!!
