Don't be THAT girl

Long long ago, in what seemed like a never ending blur of parties, fun and chaos I had a dear friend tell me this words of wisdom.


It seems like so long ago, so simple, and a conversation I would be shocked to learn he still remembered. I never told him how much those words changed me. 

They stuck with me in a time when I was forced to make tough choices. I had to choose a path, become the woman I am today, or continue the road I was on. It was not easy. I gave up a lot, lost a lot, and gained a lot. Life is like that.

Those words were a wake up call, and for many reasons.

There are many situations when I hear his voice in my head and smile.

Don't be that girl "at the party"
Don't be that girl "at the office" 
Don't be that girl "in business"
Don't be that girl "who is...________"

I hope one day I can pass along those words to my daughter, and she will understand them, live by them and be a better person for them. Like me.
