Every time I interview a 40-something woman for 40:20 Vision I ask them what 3 “gifts” would they give a 20-something if they were a “Forty-Godmother”. Here are one woman’s gifts:
The knowledge that your parents wanting the best for you does not mean they won’t support you if you choose a different direction that what they think is “best”.
The ability to hear someone when they tell you they love you even if it’s not the “way” your friends’ boyfriends / partners tell them. Not everyone shows love the same way. If he doesn’t give you flowers, ask yourself does he show you that he loves you in other ways before feeling resentful or unappreciated.
A lifetime of happy Sundays. Enjoy your Sundays without worrying about Mondays. Banish the Sunday Blues. It’s your weekend. You deserve every last minute of it.
