What a wonderful life I’ve had!
I only wish
I’d realized it sooner.
On Huffington Post, Nina Bahadur invites you to offer advice for girls as they travel the path to womanhood:
Author Courtney Summers launched the hashtag #ToTheGirls on April 14, the same day that her YA novel All the Rage was released. Her hope is that women will share their best pieces of advice to young women seeking guidance and affirmation.
In a blog post about #ToTheGirls, Summers urged her followers: “Take the opportunity to tell the girls you know — and the ones you don’t — that they are seen, heard and loved. Share advice. Be encouraging. Tell us about or thank the girls in your life who have made a difference in yours.”
Women on Twitter shared their best insight on confidence, romance, success, sex and more.

@SaraZarr #ToTheGirls: You don’t have to grow up to be a mom or a wife if you don’t want to. It’s ok to not have kids, not want to babysit, etc.
@HaleShannon #ToTheGirls Find and stay near the people who make you feel possible, larger, worthy, interesting, excited, comfortable, confident.
@coracarmack #ToTheGirls It’s never too late. To do what you love. To change your mind. To change your life.
@syntactics #ToTheGirls: “I’m sorry” is for when you’ve hurt someone. It’s not for when you’re asking others for respect or the right to take up space.
@FeministFists #ToTheGirls You have the right to take back your consent at any time during a sexual situation. Even if he bought you dinner.
@elloecho #ToTheGirls The mistakes you made do not shape who you are. They are NOT who you are. Forgive yourself, love yourself, and let them go.
@SarahDessen It’s okay if you don’t have everything together. Life is a process. Keep learning, keep loving. Keep on. #tothegirls
