Last week, I got to hang out with the 2nd and 3rd year girls from the Sacred Heart Secondary School in Clonakilty. The pleasure was all mine. These girls are smart, open hearted and generous with their time.
We talked about how we treat each other, how we react to how others treat us, and how we overcome challenges. These girls have big plans for their future, and in this group we had future olympians, doctors, world explorers, make up artists, zoolologists and singers. Above all we have life long friends who appreciate and respect each others differences and know that we all have an important role to play in the world.
Special thanks to the young lady who shared her experience of anxiety with me afterwards. Don’t ever be afraid to ask for help, you are smart, beautiful and capable of anything.
Below are extracts from the hundreds of promises, apologies and goals that these girls shared. I hope each and every one of your dreams come true.
