I just wish someone would have told me. That’s why I created youtube.com/DaniAustin2.
How do people make it through life without a sister? Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade having a big bro for the world. I bet you don’t know one other 8 year old girl who spent her Friday nights trying to beat The Legend of Zelda on Nintendo. (I’m talkin’ the old 1964 NES console with the big red buttons on the controller). Like every little girl, I did grow up.
Let’s just say, puberty hit me hard. Real hard. I’m thankful it did. I wont get into the middle school horror stories but my girlhood consisted of braces, insecurities, the mean girls, and more braces. I remember feeling very hopeful for the future but shying away from everyone or not able to live in the moment. I often wished for a sister who had “been there done that,” someone who could help me navigate the awkwardness of adolescence.
Looking back, I shouldn’t have let those insecurities take away my smile. I had so many other beautiful things about me to be confident about.
This is everything I wish an older sister would have told me.
