The Sarah Project Experience - DAY 4

LIDDO ME*

If I only knew then {all together now} what I know now. I look back from time to time and can't believe how unnecessarily I sweated my way through being a kid. The bullies, the boys and the absence of "boobs and booty" in an era when those.things.seemed.critical.

I wish I could have known how it all REALLY works. That the bullies were probably sad inside, that the boys were not worth the energy and thought I was putting in and that once I respected and valued myself enough I wouldn't be interested in putting that kind of thought and energy into chasing boys anyway.

I wish I'd known that not having the boobs and booty that many of my 12-year-old classmates had would work out for me years down the road. MAN I wish I had known that part {insert Jim Carrey full  body flail here}.

Did they like me? Were my clothes cool enough? Was I pretty enough? So much concern about so many things that just didn't really matter in the ways that I imagined they did. I think about that awkward little girl and imagine her face lighting up with a sly smile as I whisper in her ear, "Girrrrrrl don't you worry about this foolishness! If you skip forward just a few chapters you're not gonna beLIEVE how this story plays out..."

LIDDO ME

Verse 1

They teasin' you 'cause you skinny

And you ain't got no booty

But look 'em up in fifteen years

You'll see they gon' be on that Jenny

Baby girl you'll have the last laugh

But don't you laugh last 'cause God don't like ugly, no no

Just know there is a reason for every season

Wish that you could hear me, yeah
