I read something brilliant on someone's blog earlier today and now for the life of me, I can't remember who was the writer...so can't give them the credit, but they asked for some words of advice and then compiled them.
So...I am going to ask you to do the same. And I will give the list to my daughter.
If you could go back in time and give advice to your junior high self, what would it be?
I'll start. Here's mine:
I don't know anyone who loved junior high. But, keep in mind that it is in junior high that you start to see what people are made of. The bullies begin to get their feet wet. The hair swishers begin to realize that they have some power over boys. The brainy ones realize that for the first time, it is not cool to be the smartest kid in math. A lot of life's biggest tests start in junior high.
Now, what is YOUR advice? I value your opinions and truly want to know.
And after this...we will tackle RELATIONSHIP advice, so get your thinking caps on, dudes.
