What 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. The ability to say no and not feel guilty
2. To say yes to the things that you fear
3. Find fun in what you’re doing and know that it will always get better. Believe that it will always get better whether it’s your next relationship, the women you meet in your life, your career. It’s all going to be okay. It always gets better. I don’t think any woman will die from any of the heartaches they’ve gone through. It’s always better on the other end. It sucks to go through it. It’s like time is your best friend and your worst enemy because the more time passes, the more perspective you have and the better things get. Yet while you’re in the middle of that time it doesn’t go as fast as you want it to and it just is awful.
