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.Get outside of yourself. It will give you insight to see your self. Some people have blinders on…making decisions based only no what is familiar, what they grew up with and what is in front of them. Get out of your comfort zone so you can see if that is really where you want to be. Is it a good place for you? Do you want to change? Be it travel, volunteering in a different community, taking a class in something that is different that what you studiied, reading…make a point of it now.
2. Self reliance. Expect to take care of self but don’t refuse help when given.
3. Be confident enough in yourself to have your own style. Wear what you are comfortable in and you are beautiful no matter what you wear.
