Be True to Who U R

This is a life lesson themed layout (featuring Little Yellow Bicycle's new Paradise collection) about Alexa's struggles with wanting to be "popular". It's hard enough growing up in today's world, but then you throw this issue in, in fifth grade no less. I don't remember noticing cliques or "popularity" until I was in high school! How about you? Do you have a story to tell about your tween struggles?

Journaling reads: This year the topic of being “popular” has come up. It’s difficult to see you struggling with this but I know you have to find your own way. All I can tell you is what I’ve learned from experience (and already shared with you) — you don’t have to dress a certain way or act a certain way to get people to like you. You know what? People DO like you. You’re a great kid and you have so many positive qualities. Next year you’ll be in sixth grade along with 400 kids you’ve never even met. Imagine the possibilities in terms of new friendships! Just stay true to who you are and you will blossom and attract friends who like you for YOU.

Oh, and in case you missed it, this page was featured on Little Yellow Bicycle's blog earlier this week. :)
