MAKING THE MOST OUT OF THE SUMMER
From my family’s yearly trip to San Francisco to hitting the beach, summer is pretty much my favorite season. Every girl needs a bit of R&R, and traveling always fills me up with joy. Especially when it’s a place I’ve never been to before. Walking around different cities is something I love doing.
STANDING UP FOR YOURSELF/LEARNING FROM YOUR EXPERIENCES
I know they say “forgive and forget,” but that means allowing yourself to let go of what happens. I’m not saying that holding grudges is a good idea, ’cause it’s not! Just don’t allow yourself to be a victim of the same situation or person twice or thrice. So I say, “Forgive…but maybe it’s also good not to forget.” Stand up for yourself! Don’t bottle things in.
HAVING REAL FEMALE FRIENDSHIPS
Another thing I love and am most thankful about is meeting my Blogger Besties. It’s amazing building such an awesome bond with such great girls! We’ve become such a tightly knit group that I don’t know what I’d do without them. We always make it a point to be there for each other. Aside from that, when we give advice, it’s real advice. It’s only right!
HAVING A STRONG SENSE OF SELF
You can’t please everyone, and your past doesn’t define who you are now. Over the years, I’ve learned that I should worry less about what people think or say about me. Don’t let the opinions of others consume you—people who talk bad about you just aren’t worth your time. So keep walking. You do you—don’t look at yourself through the eyes of others. Be yourself.
