Stop this one thought and you will be so much happier!
This is Jen and you are listening to the GIRLBRAVE podcast and I am back, I got braces and it took me a couple of weeks to get used to it. Yeah. So I've just been taking a little bit of a break from the podcast. I really love doing these and I appreciate you for having a listen today. I wanted to talk a bit about expectations. Have you ever been mad at a friend because they didn't notice you had a new haircut or they didn't comment on something after you did it something that you were proud of? You know, you can go down that rabbit hole of just being angry at them for not paying attention. And that can really get away from you. I know I've learned over the years, not to let those sorts of things bother me and it really helped me stay happier. You just don't know what the other person thinking. You might think, why aren't they noticing, but they might be going through something else where they aren't noticing, but it's not on purpose. And I think we sometimes take things so personally that we think it's on purpose, that they are missing what we're doing. And so today I just wanted to bring that up because it's really easy to go down that trap. And there've been a couple of things recently that I have done that I feel like I want some recognition for. And when it doesn't come, I don't want to go down that, Hey, I'm mad at you because you didn't recognize this. You just have to choose to go the other way. Just let it go. Try not to think about it. Don't try to analyze why they didn't say anything and just be okay with them not being at that point right now. And move on, get back to feeling good about yourself, for the thing that you did accomplish. There are so many people out there that are rooting for you that do see what you're doing and do see your accomplishments, but you can't rest your self-worth on what other people say about you, because that will just end up not being good. And I know it's hard to do when we live in a world of getting so many likes, so many followers, we can't live that way. It will eat you up inside after a while, do what you want to do. Be proud that you did it. Move on to the next thing that you want to do and leave the alkaline bags, leave the like sleeves up. Why didn't they say anything about that behind? And you will feel so much better because you won't be rooting and all that anger about that person. Not recognizing that's my 2 cents for today. It's been such a long time since I've been on here. I hope I hope you guys are all good. I love being able to come on to have this platform to come on, to talk to you about certain things. I'd love to hear a little bit more about what you're going through. This, anything that you'd like me to talk about to give you my point of view and, uh, yeah. Let me know what you wanna, what you wanna hear. Leave me a message on my Instagram. It's at pin curl girls, or you can email me at Jen at Penn Crow, girls.com. And let me know, check in with me. Let me know that you're listening to this though, to know who you are and that way I can tell the message, uh, more for you. I hope you have a great day and we'll see you next time.

You're welcome.How old are you and where do you live?Yep. Well, I actually I lived in PEI for a bit but I'm mostly Nova Scotia.I have a friend that I went to grad school with who's also from Nova Scotia. Oh, really? Yeah. Yeah. So I know that you won a contest to illustrate a children's book called Purple Rules by David Geyer. How did you first hear about that contest?I'm afraid it's not a very exciting story. I was literally quite literally just scrolling through Instagram. And I saw an ad. So I just joined and I didn't think too much of it at first, it was a worldwide contest.What did you think about when you apply? Did you think, Oh, this is not gonna happen? or this could happen? Or maybe I shouldn't be doing this. I'm not good enough. Or I'm going to win it.I don't know. I mean, it was, I think I was a little I was I was probably, I was bouncing between being very, very confident and being very, very confident. I guess. I'm kind of one of the only one of my peers, I guess that I found that like art, around here, because I live in a very small place with 300 kids from grade primary to grade 12.

Environmental Advocate, Purva, Said Good Bye to Single Use Plastic Bags and now New Jersey is too.
Speaker 1: (00:00)Hi, this is Jen from the GIRLBRAVE podcast. I welcome you today. I'm so excited to introduce you to our guest Purva who started a Bye Bye Plastic Bags New Jersey. And just recently it past that starting in the new year. They are no longer able to use single-use plastic bags or paper bags. Bye Bye Plastic Bags is a global movement of young people who are demanding change and specifically from adults and people who are kind of empower as elected officials and asking them to, first of all, push forward environmental legislation. And we kind of just came together as a community to start that off with saying no to plastic pollution and specifically single-use plastic bags. So across the world, we're seeing young people, um, demanding of their local legislation that they signed petitions and come together as a local community to stop plastic bags from being produced and being distributed in a community. So here in New Jersey, we were really inspired by the initial motivation between starting the organization. And we really wanted to create change and create a lasting environmental impact within New Jersey. So we kind of just, um, decided to go for it. And we started a team here and now I've been able to lead a team of over 40 students who are kind of just working together to push forward environmental legislation.
