Three 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.


1. Show your gratitude. Tell people when they do a good job or do something nice. Recognize their efforts. It’s a gift you can give everyday and it gives back.

2. Relax. You don’t have to fit it all in in your 20s. Use this time to explore what is important to you so you can figure out what you do want to fit in or start focusing on in your thirties.

3. Don’t beat yourself up. When you make a mistake…it’s a waste of time to spend a long time berating yourself. Learn from it if you can, or accept there is nothing to learn and move on.
