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. I wish I had grasped earlier that it’s okay to change and okay to pivot. You don’t have to prove yourself by sticking to it. Once you realize something is not working, a job, an idea a relationship, the time invested in it after that is time away from doing something that does work.
2. Invite adventure into your life. I have found overtime that risk is not reckless it’s what keeps you from being stagnant.
3. Regret is a luxury when you are building something and have so much to do and so much riding on it. It’s just part of moving forward. You have to move on.
