What a weekend! As you know (or may not) I hosted the first ever WYC Girls Night! We had a great time! We played a few ice breaker games, talked about preparing for the future, style, fashion and of course boys! We had pizza, wings, cookies and candy! Not only was the food good but the conversation was good too! The girls ranged from 11-16 years old so you know they had some interesting questions. I can’t tell you the questions that were asked because everything that we talk about is confidential, but I can tell you what I talked about!
I shared 3 important things with the girls that I KNOW will be helpful to you!
1. I asked the girls: Who are you? It’s important to know who you are so no one can tell you who they think you should be. Boys/people can’t manipulate you when you know who you are.
Who you are has nothing to do with what you do but everything to do with your personality! The things you do right now can change, for example, if you say that you are a student what happens when you graduate? Will you still be a student? No, that’s not who you are, that is what you do temporarily.
2. Don’t let your emotions run your life! Girls are emotional by nature and it is important that we get our emotions in check! 99.9% of the time when we listen to our emotions it causes us to be lazy or do things that we like to do. No matter how much we try to deny or hide our emotions, we have them and there is nothing wrong with having emotions. The problem comes when we do everything we FEEL/DON’T feel like doing and not doing what God wants us to do.
Here is an example: In the morning, when you wake up, you know you are supposed to make your bed but you don’t. Why? Because you don’t see a point when you are going to get back in it later!..right? (Was that just my way of thinking?... ANYWHOOO) You don’t make your bed because you don’t FEEL like it! You’re emotions are causing you to be lazy and they are pulling you away from doing what you know is the right thing to do.
3. Set short term goals. Not only is it important to know who you are and get control over your emotions, but you have to know where you are going. Once you know where you are going you won’t be easily persuaded by others to go in another direction because you already have it mapped out.
Most importantly make sure you pray and listen to what God is telling you and where He is leading you. You can never go wrong when you do things God’s way! His plans are way better and bigger than ours and if God tells you to do something just know that you will be able to make it!
Don't forget your confidence!
