3 Gifts for a 20-Something

WIshlist-3 Wishes Image

What three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”?  This is where I ask 40-something women to share 3 things to help a 20-something get a head start on gaining confidence to make decisions that are right for you. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda. We have a beautiful post this week from a reader…3 Wishes for My Daughter

1. Care less about what other people think, and focus more on living up to your own ideas about who you are and who you want to be.

2.Don’t die. Everything else can be redeemed or rescued so be sure to live your life for real, not as a dress rehearsal. Ask questions. Explore. Have lots of adventures. Be brave. Take as many risks as you can bear, and add maybe one more just to terrify yourself.

3. Talk to people, all sorts of people and listen to the stories they can tell you. Listen because everyone needs to be heard but also because people have stories to share that can change your world and paint it technicolour.
