Pick a fear and conquer it! We all have something that scares us but conquring a fear is the best feeling! Everyone has something that scares them but the feeling of overcoming it is so incredible! In our book #FINDTHEGIRL, Nina overcomes her fear of performing in public.
School is where you build your strongest friendships, they say when you’re friends with someone for 7 years you’re friends for life! Really treasure these friendships you build at school because these are the special ones! You get to spend every day with your friends at school. No matter how busy you are, always take time to nurture your friendships.
TAKE MORE PHOTOS
Take more photos with disposable cameras and Polaroid’s as these are captured in the moment and are printed! Take photos of everyday spontaneous moments that create memories! These are the photos you would love to look back on in years to come! Don’t even feel like you HAVE to post everything on social media, just save these photos to look back on one day! Nina in our book #FINDTHEGIRL loves taking photos and has such a love of photography, but she doesn’t even have social media.
SAVING YOUR TEXT MESSAGES
Start saving your messages and texts from your friends. They are perfect to read when you need a good pick me up and hilarious to read back!
DE CLUTTER YOUR ROOM.
We always say ‘a messy room means a messy mind!’ Your brain will feel so much clearer when you have a tidy room and tidy workspace. If you have a place for everything and you know where everything is, your brain will be de cluttered!
START A BULLET JOURNAL OR DIARY.
A bullet journal or diary is the best way to stay organised and on top of all of your work! Writing lists and ticking them off, it’s the best feeling! A journal or diary is a great way of planning and tracking your goals too. We always loved a bullet journal in our teens, and we even now!
BREAKFAST IS SO IMPORTANT
Start your day breakfast! They do say it’s the most important meal of the day and it really is! It will fuel you for the morning and it’s so important!
ASK FOR HELP
Ask for help when you need it! Although you may want to fix your problems on your own, it’s is always better to ask for help! Whatever it is, a trusted friend or family member will be there to help you.
ITS YOUR PATH!
Always listen to your heart when it comes to your career path. It’s YOUR career path. It’s important to keep your options open. You then may gain new experiences and your career plans may even change, but that’s ok! Don’t let family members or friends pressure you into picking a certain career and don’t let it worry you if you are unsure of your career path. It’s completely normal and don’t put pressure on yourself.
ALWAYS BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.
Be true true to yourself and trust your values. Don’t regret anything. Being true to yourself will give you more self-confidence and a greater likelihood of achieving your personal goals. One of our favourite quotes is from One Tree Hill from Brooke Davis where she says ‘I am who I am, no excuses!’ and we loveeeee this quote. Always stand up for what you believe in, even if your opinion is unpopular, but if you believe in something, be true to you!
