Celebrating Girls

Every once in a while I get this rush of overwhelming excitement about being a girl. It’s great, don’t you think?  As girls, we get to play sports, dance, wear jewelry, and be wives, mothers, and sisters.  We get to wear dresses, run and play.  We go shopping and have slumber parties; activities that boys just don’t understand!

Girls Inc. is a non-profit organization with the goal to inspire girls to be strong.  They created a Bill of Rights for girls that help to inspire us to be bold and successful.  This program helps young girls realize their value and potential.  A six-year old girl shared her thoughts about being a girl.  She said, “It’s good to be a girl in this world today.  I like being a girl because I can speak for myself. I can stand up for myself. Being a girl makes me strong.”

Being a girl is not just about all of the fun activities we get to do.  Girls are capable of success and no one can stand in our way.  Girls become Doctors, teachers, nurses, scientists and much more.  The possibilities are endless if you believe in yourself.

As girls and women, we have so many great opportunities to eliminate the stereotypes that hold us back.  We can change the world.

What are your favorite things about being a girl?

  3. Don’t hurry or don’t get upset if they are not talking about it.
    For example, if your spouse perished in a hurricane when you were present
    and also experiencing the trauma, mental health experts would expect your grief to be of great intensity.

    You can ask about talking to a Psychologist, Counselor or Therapist if you
    want to, in addition to seeing the Psychiatrist, because Psychiatrists usually specialize in just giving you
    the medicine. If you as an adult have difficulty coping with depression, imagine how a young child
    feels. Margaret Bourke-White was born in the Bronx in 1904
    and her father, Joseph White was an amateur photograph who exposed her to the art of photography at a young
    age. There is another kind of “depression” that’s sometimes called “clinical depression.

  4. A good wholesome breakfast will take you all the
    way to lunch with some time to spear. Still another way of
    curing obesity is to eat low carbohydrate, low fat, high protein diets.
    It is claimed that you can lose between 8 and 13 pounds within the first two weeks, and then a respectable 1-2
    pounds every week after that.
