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. Don’t let a predetermined vision of what life should be determine your decisions. Be open to what life has to offer and the many directions that you can choose that go beyond what others around you are doing.
2. Get health insurance. Go to the doctor, dentist, gyro. Pay your 401K.
3. Think deeply before going for the next best thing when it comes to relationships. The unknown is not necessarily better than the known.
