Herewith, three “gifts” one 40-something woman would give a 20-something if she were a “Forty-Godmother”. What are yours?
Get balls not malls. A little tongue in cheek…but I mean spend less time shopping and worrying about how you look and more time jumping into life and doing things that you are afraid of and learning. Falling and getting up. That is what gives you confidence and self worth. Not how much money you can spend on things.
Get dirty. Know that life gets messy and that is what makes it interesting. Perfect is boring. Get comfortable with the mess. You can’t control everything and keep your life all contained in a box tied up with a neat bow. And it’s really okay.
Patience. Don’t rush love. You have to know a man / partner for four seasons to get a good idea of they are in different situations.
