Reading the posts here from PIM girls warms my heart. Listening to them and learning about them through their words has given new meaning to Power in the Middle. I remember being 13, 14, 15 years old and feeling like I was an outcast. Not pretty enough, not witty enough, too shy and insecure for the popular crowd, I tried everything to fit it. Of course nothing worked because I tried too hard and I wasn't just me. These girls, my age then, are learning to just be themselves. They are loving young ladies who take one day at a time the best they can, no matter what happened yesterday and not knowing what tomorrow will bring. I wish I knew then what I know now - there's no secret - just put one foot in front of the other, every single day.
