Typically I reserve Fridays for reviews but today is a very special day… not only does Jurassic World open in theatres but Orange Is The Black Season 3 will be on Netflix… oh and it’s my baby sister’s 13th birthday!
Well…wow little one! I cannot believe you are 13 years old! You are officially a teenager…. sometimes it feels like just yesterday I was turning 13 and you weren’t even a month old!
You are such a beautiful little thing. (Yes, I just called you little thing and I know you love it) Where does the time go?
Here are 13 Quotes to prepare you for the next 13 years of your life.
Never explain – your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.
Men always want to be a woman’s first love – women like to be a man’s last romance.
A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Don’t just count your years, make your years count.
Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.
Even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun.
Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.
I could interpret all of these for you but I think as you’re growing up there will be moments where you will be dealing with a certain situation and one of these quotes will come to mind and you will understand it perfectly!
A few other pearls of wisdom from your big sister:
You will fall in love and you probably will get your heart-broken at least once. But it will heal. When you’re crying your eyes out and feel like it is the worst thing that could ever happen just remember, you will heal. The truth is one day you’ll look back and won’t believe you cared that much.
The next 10 years you will have so many opportunities to learn! Take them all. There is so much to learn in the world and I’m sorry but you don’t know it all and never will.
You will lose friends and it won’t be the end of the world. Some might betray you, you may let some of them down and some will naturally just drift away, that’s when you will figure out who is really worth having in your life.
You have my soft heart, don’t let anyone harden it.
I could go on and on but the truth is you just have to learn some lessons for yourself, and honestly I’m still learning.
I love you so much,
