Reflection - Photo a Day
{I can't believe I am showing this to you}
This is my Year 7 school photograph....
the same age that my daughter is now......  
I was just finishing year 7 and anticipating what high school was going to be like....
If I could give my 12 year old self some tips what would they be.....hmmmm
  • Choose friends wisely
  • work hard
  • take every opportunity to get involved as possible
  •  don't stress about the "school fashion"
  • be true to who you are 
  • be a leader not a follower
  • listen to mum and dad they really do know what they are talking about!
It seems like it was so much different back in 1979...maybe not...
hopefully it will all help me to guide my own 12 year old through the next stage of her life. 
{still can't believe I showed you that photo!} 


  1. Oh wow, great to have such photos and some great advice for Meg as she contemplates high school. She's going to be fine and make great decisions I'm sure, she's such a great young lady.

  2. What a beautiful photo Bron!! And that advice would fit for any adult girl too! xxxx

  3. I love that photo! Thanks for sharing.
    And great advice too :)

  4. Bron, it's a lovely photo......don't the years fly by.

    It's an exciting time, I remember Christmas hols before going into Form 1, hehe.......

    Wow, I'm off down memory lane now, catch you later......

    Oops, all the best to your daughter, I'm sure she'll love it.

  5. Great pic! & very brave of you!

    Very out Taylor is like you. With your pictures side by side you can really see it.

  6. You are VERY BRAVE! I may have shared my bedroom, but No Way! to a photo of me when I was 12! lol Seriously, thank you for sharing and isn't it funny how now we can reflect back and see that all the pressures that were there then, really don't matter in the grand scheme of things! I think this one thing I try to instil in my children and my own class, just always be true to your own self .. We grow up, and look there is so much I wish I could go back, change and do again! Have a great Sunday! Mel xox
