As this is a blog to encourage and help girls of all ages, I thought I’d talk about society’s standards. What do I mean by this? Well, I mean all of the people saying you have to wear makeup to look pretty, be a certain weight, height, have certain hair, clothes, etc.

I saw a video on YouTube that really inspired me. It made me happy to know that people out there are standing up for what is right and true. It even made me cry, because I know I have fallen for societies lies before, and I know I still will. No one’s perfect. But with God, you know what? We can do a whole lot better.

After you watch this video, just sit and close your eyes, and think for a moment. What lies have you, or are you falling for? How can you fix it? What is it in your life that you can do better?

If you have any questions, or would like me to discuss further on this topic, please leave a comment. 🙂

You know those times when you do something really stupid, and hope that no one saw you?

Well… I am very well trained in these circumstances, as I dub Clumsy Mistakes.

I was at work, in the kitchen, working hard. I knelt down to pull something out of the bottom of a refrigerater. When I stood, the back of my skirt caught on the back of my shoes, and I fell backwards onto my bum…

I don’t think anyone noticed, though, so that’s good!

Anyway, that was real funny. I hope it never happens again, though my skirt catching on the back of my shoes seems to happen a lot, so maybe I should come up with a solution… hm…

You can learn a lot from these Clumsy Mistakes! Mostly: Don’t repeat them.

So that is the lessson today, friends! Try not to repeat those silly Clumsy Mistakes, and you’ll be better off. 🙂
