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.
This week’s three wishes are from a book I’m reading. In the book Sweetbitter their is a mentor like relationship between an older and younger woman who work at a famed New York restaurant. It’s the story of a small midwestern-town girl on coming of age in New York City. “Let’s say I was born when I came over the George Washington Bridge…” I’m enjoying the book (not finished yet) and found some gifts weaved in!
1. Your self-awareness is lacking. Without an ability to see yourself, you can’t protect yourself. It is crucial to your survival that you pause the imaginary soundtrack in your head.
2. You are only beginning to learn what you don’t know.
3. No one is interested in you playing the victim. Get out of your head. If you don’t you’ll always be disappointed.
