Hey there, diary. It's Bree here, the one and only bionic girl in a trio of brothers. Today I want to talk about something that's been on my mind lately - balancing my tomboy side with my girly girl side.

Growing up as the only girl among two rowdy boys can be tough sometimes. They never let me forget that I'm different from them, but honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. Sure, they drive me crazy most of the time with their antics and constant teasing, but deep down, I know they've always got my back.

I've always been proud of being a bit of a tomboy. Climbing trees and playing sports have always come more naturally to me than painting nails or shopping for dresses. But every once in a while, there's this small part of me that craves some girly indulgence - like getting dressed up for special occasions or having girls' night out with Caitlin.

It can be challenging trying to navigate between these two sides of myself. Sometimes I worry that embracing one means neglecting the other – am I not feminine enough if all I care about is winning at basketball? Or am I betraying my true self by putting on makeup and heels?

But then again... why should anyone tell me who or what to be? Why should society dictate how much pink versus blue makes us "girly" or "tomboyish"? Can't we just embrace both sides equally without feeling guilty?

I guess what really matters is how comfortable we feel in our own skin - whether we prefer sneakers over stilettos or hoodies over frilly blouses doesn't define our worth as individuals.

So today, dear diary, I've made peace with both aspects of myself – the rough-and-tumble athlete who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty AND the stylish fashionista who loves experimenting with new looks.

Because at the end of the day... why choose when you can have it all?
