A Letter To The Little Girl That Wanted To Grow Up So Fast

Dear little girl,

I am writing you this to tell you growing up is not that easy. I know now that all you are thinking about is growing up and being able to do whatever you want. You want to explore this wonderful world and make something of yourself.

Well, I have two words for you: SLOW DOWN.

Look at the world around you and see how wonderful it is. Growing up is hard to do, and you can never have the playful years back. You say that you want to be an adult, yet being an adult is not all that you would expect it to be. You have to work hard every day, and you have less time for family and friends. You have bills, which trust me are not fun. You also have to balance everything when you are an adult, between friends, work, college, and many other events going on. I know that you want to be just like your parents and be successful and hard working. Trust me, you will have plenty of time to do so. You may think it is so important to grow up and move out and have a family of your own. You will do that one day just not today. Just sit back and relax. You need to enjoy your childhood. Go crazy, watch cartoons all day, go to the park, go ride bikes with your friends. Just enjoy being a kid and don't think that you need to grow up so fast. Live in the moment because if you don't it can be lost in an instant.

Little girl that wanted to grow up so fast, you are now grown, and you are me. I was you, I wanted to grow up so fast and now that I have, I wish I was you again. I wish I could go back and be that little girl again.


The Future you

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
