TALL GIRL: Stand Out & Stand Tall

Does any of this sound familiar?

Hey it’s the Jolly Green Giant

or Daddy Long Legs


Question of the day: How’s the weather up there?

Have you ever made eye contact with a guy from across the room while you’re both sitting down? And then you stand up, he sees how tall you are and he runs away. ¬†

I could continue on this list but I’m betting that you’re already nodding your head in agreement on the other side of the computer screen. ¬†If this sounds like a snapshot of your life, then you will totally relate to the movie Tall Girl. ¬†Especially because everything I just mentioned is covered in the first 5 minutes. ¬†Along with the short, sassy best friend played by Anjelika Washington. ¬†But more important than the “pain points” of being tall, this movie is really a journey of self-acceptance and self-confidence. ¬†A story of being bullied to becoming bold. ¬†To be confident in your own skin. ¬†To love EVERY INCH of yourself from the inside out. ¬†Truthfully, I wish this movie was around when I was in high school.

Now, I don‚Äôt want to give away too much of the movie storyline because I want you to enjoy watching it for yourself. Ava Michelle truly embodies what it is to grow up tall. I guarantee her journey is very similar to what you have been through too. Chances are you‚Äôll be looking at the screen and thinking ‚Äúyep, this is my life‚ÄĚ. ¬†On Wednesday night, I was in a theater full of tall sisters that would tell you the same thing. ¬†A HUGE THANK YOU to The Tall Society and Netflix for making that happen. ¬†After you watch the movie let me know what you think! ¬†Especially the last 2 minutes. ¬†You’ll know what I mean when you get there. ¬†I’ll tell you this much…it involves a crate. ¬†And every single girl in the theater was yelling “NO! Don’t do it! Nooooo!” ¬†So like I said, tell me what you think in the comments below once you see it.
