Herewith, three “gifts” one 40-something woman would give a 20-something if she were a “Forty-Godmother”. What are yours?
To learn another language. Then to travel to a country where you can use it and experience another culture. ..alone. You will learn so much more about yourself by traveling alone.
To be open to love. I think if you do things that you love and you are really true to yourself, you will find people that you love. It’s not going to be hard. It’s not going to be full of conflict. Of course every relationship takes work but there it is. It’s just all timing…being on the same level (both ready), and knowing yourself well enough.
A credit card limit. Don’t think your credit card is free money! I ended up getting in credit card debt just based on a $500 post college card limit.. It was really stressful and traumatic. It’s taken me 20 years to get my credit rating back up.
