Three Gifts for a 20-Something

WIshlist-3 Wishes ImageWhat three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”?  40-something women share three things to help a 20-something get a head start on the confidence to make decisions that are right for themselves. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.




1. Don’t think you can find somebody who will satisfy every need you have in the universe. But to find someone whom you know you’ll always value and who’ll always value you and have no question about that…that is a gift. You will know. I think you have to be open to it definitely. I think it has to be about more than superficial things. It has to be about the deepest values that you hold.

2. Be open to life. I never had any of those dreams like big wedding or kids or any of that sort of stuff. I never had a bucolic ideal of the future. It was much more that I just wanted to travel and see things, experience things and to get the absolute most out of every single day. It never really changed. That ambition is still there and make an impact, to matter, to do stuff. That’s quite consistent.

3. Don’t worry about what other people expect you to do. You know yourself the best. Make the time to understand what drives you and motivates you and then follow that.
