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 brazenly independent in your twenties. Explore the world and your ambitions.
2. I think if you do things that you love and you are really true to yourself, you will find people that you love. Of course every relationship takes work but it doesn’t have to be full of conflict. It’s all timing, being on the same level, and knowing yourself well enough.
3. Do something challenging for yourself that is athletic that helps build confidence. I know surfing has really helped me a lot because it helps you overcome fears and challenges.
