    3 Gifts for a 20-Something

    WIshlist-3 Wishes ImageWhat three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”? Here, 40-somethng women share the three things to help 20-somethings get a head start on perspective and gain confidence to make decisions that are right for them. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.

     

     

     

    1. Don’t deceive yourself. For so many reasons!

    2. Appreciate others in all life situations. There is a good probability that at one time in your life you will be in their shoes. If you never are, you are either lucky, or you missed an opportunity to learn and grow.

    3. Allow yourself to feel, experience, and process through hardship. It can be much more painful to deal with in the future if you suppress it. You can pay for counseling, treatment, etc., now or years later when you will likely have compiled regrets and also lost precious time.
