I learned over the course of the last 20 years that you should have a fluid sense of your future instead of a concrete idea of what it’s supposed to look like. Prepare for the evolution of your life and be open-minded because that really is what prohibits people from becoming happy. They aren’t prepared for the change. That is how life is. Families have evolved. Work has evolved. You have to be open to the ... keep reading...

  I went to the ranch because I was tired of going down Second Avenue. That November morning felt the same as just about every Monday morning over the previous four years of my life. Up. Make bed. Shower. Find something to wear. Turn off lights. Check again for keys, wallet, bus pass, cell phone. Question need for scarf or umbrella. Decide against both. Grab the laundry bag on the floor of the closet. “Good morning…you pick it ... keep reading...

Every now and then I read something that makes me think….that nails the essence of 40:20 Vision. Yesterday this quote came my way from author José Micard Teixeira - recently quoted by Meryl Streep as words she lives by. It was one of those moments. There is something that happens as you interact on this planet longer …eventually you stop fighting others and you start realizing your power. The only race that really matter's is the one you ... keep reading...

One of the best pieces of advice I've heard over the years of doing this blog was from Maria Shriver … about the importance of not comparing ourselves to others. At a conference she said that the one message she wanted to give women is that "no one person's path is better than another's." As a 20-something, there is so much pressure to find a path and then measure yourself by that path – from getting a ... keep reading...

One Cycle You Have to Avoid In Your 20s

              My 20s were all about what I didn’t have, what I could have, what I needed to have. And now it is more about 'wow, I’m so lucky'. I constantly feel grateful for what I do have and it gives me such a different view on life. I wish I had believed more in my strengths. The world can be a competitive place so there is always someone who doing more…someone who is prettier, thinner, smarter, wealthier. It’s very easy ... keep reading...

Don’t Live By The Clock Ticking…Live By Your Heart Beating

Dear 20-somethings, Don’t lie about your age. No good comes from it. I always got the sense that the whole “40 is the new 20” thing was because a lot more women used to lie about their age. So when a 50-year-old said she was 40 –that’s what our perception of 40 was. But when Demi Moore said I am 40…everyone started saying hey – look what 40 looks like. Of course she may have had ... keep reading...
