Herewith, three “gifts” one 40-something woman would give a 20-something if she were a “Forty-Godmother”. What are yours?
Travel cheap. Figure out a way to make it work. You think you have to get a job and that you will always have time but it’s a lot harder to do later. When you are young you have time and no money. When you are older you have money but no time. Travel will make you feel better about yourself instead of worrying about what other people are doing.
Don’t think that you can change them. When you are 25 you think he can be the man that you want him to be…that he just needs to grow up. He may…but it’s not you or getting married that is going to do it.
Don’t worry about getting married by a certain age. There is nothing wrong with not getting married or being the single one. OMG if I had married any of the guys I had dated when I was in my 20s I would definitely be divorced. When you are 28 you don’t think that way…you think what am I going to do? I wish girls would know you might not meet someone until you are 50 that is the right person but most likely you will meet someone. You may not get married and have children but you are probably won’t be alone either.
