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. Over the next 30 years you are going to learn a lot and a lot of it is going to be learning from mistakes. The faster you accept something is a mistake the faster you can take those learnings to something new.
2. Practice forgiveness. Forgive a friend something you begrudge them. Forgive yourself something you think is your fault. You will fill a little lighter and be able to see yourself or others more for who they are instead of who you want them to be.
3. Buy yourself flowers. Take moment each day to smell them.
