You don't get to choose your height. You can't grow or shrink on command. So you have to learn to love the inches you're given, whether there's a lot of them, or not so many of them. That's what I had to do.
I didn't always love being short. I had to learn to love it. It came with age and little bit of growing up. But when I think about it all now, I wouldn't want to be any taller, or smaller! Here's just a couple reasons why I LOVE being short...
I can always wear heels. Always. And I'll never tower over anyone!
Everyone pushes me to the front of a crowd because they feel bad. Whenever there's a speech or presentation, everyone will put me in front of them because they feel sorry for me that I can't see anything. Hey, front row view? I'm not complaining!
I don't have to worry about being too tall for boys. Dating wise, you don't EVER have to worry about how tall a guy is.
I can fit more clothes and shoes in a travel bag than anyone else. You think you can? Try me, I dare you.
I'm bomb at hide and seek. I can fit in the best hiding spots, and never be found!
I can walk under most obstacles. I never hit my head. I don't have to worry about ducking, or dodging ceilings and things.
I stand out in a crowd. I know, not literally. But people always seem to find the one person that doesn't fit in, and that's normally me! But I like standing out! Better than being boring and blending in. :)
I'm easier to throw around. This advantage helped in tremendously in cheerleading, and cheerleading has changed my life in so many ways. #WINNING
I'm always told I'm cute. I know I told you guys this can get annoying...and it can for sure. But I'd rather people tell me I'm cute all day then get no compliments at all!
I can tell when everyone else has boogers. I'm always looking up at people and I know who's snotty and who's not. I see that as a special gift, really.
Everyone thinks I'm younger than I really am. At the moment this may be a little annoying. But I know in years from now I'm gonna be saying HELL YEAH!
Most of all, I love that I'm different. A lot of people have brown hair, and brown eyes. A lot of people have two sisters. A lot of people are cheerleaders. But not many people are 4'8" tall. I love having something that makes me unique and that nobody can take away from me. And that's my height!
There are plenty more reasons why I love my height, but these are just a few for now!
