WIshlist-3 Wishes Image

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. Be patient when starting a new job. It’s hard being new. You want to do everything and know everything but you will drive yourself crazy. It’s okay to be the new person and rushing it can make you look more stupid than taking the time to get to know the culture and the company.

2. Don’t judge your relationship by what you see on Facebook. Sure it would be nice if your darling husband / partner surprised you with with an amazing trip to Bora Bora….but maybe that person had a shitty time while they were there. Putting other people’s expectations on your relationship will only leave you disappointed. Define your own expectations.

3. At some point you have to accept that your family isn’t going to change.
