Advice From a Big Sister

Be Yourself

Fitting in is for the birds! Like Dr. Seuss said,

big sister 1

Be confident

Confidence is your worst enemy’s kryptonite! This can take a while to build up but once you have it, you’re gold!

You are in control of your own body

You only get one, so cherish it. Learn to love the skin you’re in and keep your body healthy, strong and always moving.

Words Count

Choose what you say wisely, especially when it comes to social media and the internet. Once something is out there ,it is extremely hard to take it back. Don’t get hung up on what others are saying, be real and be you.

Mistakes are inevitable

Life happens, we all make mistakes. When you make one (and you will), you have two choices on how you handle it: A. You can pass the blame to someone else, or B. You can own up to yourself, look in the mirror and realize you’re human, promise to do better next time, and start working towards a solution to fix the current issue.

You can never know enough

Learning is essential to your success and happiness. Strive to learn something new every day, even if it is about yourself.

Simplify your life

Don’t sweat the small stuff! Look for ways to uncomplicate your life and I promise you will be happier. Remove things that cause unnecessary stress and frustration. Some example are clutter, toxic people, and disorganization.

I hope you dance

Don’t be the person that sits on the wall at a party. Get out there and express yourself! Life is short, so make the most of it and dance your heart out.

big sister 7

Apologize, forgive yourself, then move on

As I said before, we all make mistakes. Be humble enough to admit when you make yours and apologize. Once you have done this, let it go and forgive yourself. You won’t truly move on until you can do both.

big sister 8

Be a leader, not a follower

Your uniqueness is what makes you valuable. Your ideas and opinions are just as important as anyone else and you might surprise yourself when you put them to the test. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in and lead others in your vision.
