Hi Girls!

Girlspiration is your go-to place for encouragement, confidence, true Girl Power stories and important reminders filled with positivity & love. Being a girl isn't easy sometimes and the pressures can be overwhelming. BUT, here's the great news! You are never alone!! When I was cyber-bullied in middle school I felt alone and wished their had been an organization like Girls Above Society. At age 15, I created and founded Girls Above Society and 13 years later, (SO exciting) I'm still on a mission to give every girl the tools and mentorship needed to become confident, kind and cyber-smart. 

Sometimes we just need our voices to be heard along with a gigantic boost to keep going and focus on the good. I'm covering it all here in Girlspiration. Girl Drama, Friendships, Social Media, Pressures, and the list goes on and on. 

Have an idea or want to hear my thoughts on a certain topic? Connect with us! Your idea/story just might be featured! Click on the Girls Above Society logo at the top of this page. It will re-direct you to our home page. You'll find our contact info at the bottom of the page. We're excited to hear from you!

Feeling bored? No worries! I've got you covered! The truth is that we all feel this way from time to time. Oftentimes, the feeling of boredom isn't really that we have nothing to do, it can be a way for us to procrastinate (like doing homework, cleaning our room, etc.) because we are not feeling sure about where to begin.


What does it really mean when we are bored? Check out these interesting findings from a study done by


Elizabeth H. Weybright, John Schulenberg, Linda L. Caldwell. More Bored Today Than Yesterday? National Trends in Adolescent Boredom From 2008 to 2017. Journal of Adolescent Health, 2019; DOI: 10.1016/j.jadohealth.2019.09.021


"Perhaps boredom is simply one more indicator of adolescent dissatisfaction with how their time is spent," Weybright stated in the paper.

"Adolescence is a time of change and growth," she said. "Teens want more independence, but may not have as much autonomy as they'd like in their school and home life. That creates situations where they're prone to boredom, and may have a hard time coping with being bored."


Time management can be a difficult learning process in a girl's tween/teen years. If you are into extracurricular activities such as sports, cheer, music, etc., your days probably seem pretty full. Our schedules can be SO busy that when we do have downtime we don't know what to do with it and obsessive scrolling of social media can just add more anxiety to the situation.


Self care and positivity is a must for our daily routine. When I find myself feeling bored, I have collected a variety of favorite go-to activities along my journey. I love taking my dog for a walk. Walking is great exercise and it really provides a chance to clear my mind and take a moment to explore the beauty of nature along the way. Reading and listening to my music is relaxing and I always learn something new!


We are not always motivated, so I thought of a perfect way to say bye bye to boredom and hello to positivity. I hope you have as much fun playing GIRL TALK BINGO as I had creating it. I'd love to hear all about the Girl Power you used to complete a Bingo!


RULES: Complete tasks to score a BINGO / 5 across, diagonal, up and down are allowed! Don't forget the middle block with the Girls Above Society logo is a FREE space!

To be authentic, we must be brave enough to realize that we are imperfect and that's 100% normal! Authenticity allows us to believe that we are worthy of acceptance just as we are. I've learned that there is a ton of Girl Power and grace involved in our lives when being authentic becomes the norm. This self-love journey is just that...a road that despite the twists and roadblocks, we rise not only for ourselves but we sprinkle that magic with everyone we meet. The courage to be YOU despite everything we see in the media that tells us otherwise is a challenge worth exploring!


Have you ever been in a situation where you get that feeling that something is not right? We all have at one time or another and believe it or not we can use those experiences to gain more confidence and avoid awkward situations.


Whether being together with a group of friends (maybe some you don’t normally hang out with) or hanging out one on one with a friend, you will experience times that you find yourself behaving differently than you would normally. Trying too hard to fit in and be liked is exhausting, and if we’re not careful we can easily sink into becoming someone else for the sake of those we surround ourselves with.


Being confident enough to be YOU is incredibly important and empowering! This amazing ability will give you the Girl Power to make good choices, surround yourself with like minded friends and trust me, losing the stress of feeling like you have to act or look a certain way is totally worth celebrating!!


Take my “Are You Being the REAL YOU?” quiz and launch yourself to becoming the very best REAL version of YOU!


OK, now you know what stage your authentic self is currently situated. The construction of loving who you are and celebrating our unique qualities is much like a building project. The foundation has to be laid and the walls must be able to withstand the elements much like we face in life. Whether you are a "Second Chance Girl", "The REAL Deal", or if your current status is "You're SO close!" and "You Got This" KEEP BUILDING! Authenticity is an ever evolving journey, not a one time destination. Always remember, B is for Beginning!! xoxo Lauren
