Three Gifts for a 20-Something (5)

Another response to the question I ask every 40-something I interview: What 3 “gifts” would you give a 20-something as her “Forty-Godmother”?


Adventure. Leave your comfort zone. Travel. Don’t be afraid to leave your hometown. Live a little on your own arather than stress about relationships.

Some sort of exercise you love. Take better care of yourself. If you feel good about yourself it helps everything. It gives you self-esteem.


Lifelong Friendships. Make sure you keep your friendships. Don’t let relationships get in the way.  I tell my daughters that all the time.  Someday I’ll be gone, Boyfriends may come and go. Friends will be there forever. Treat them well.
