I have a daughter who's graduated from college & is working her first job. My 19 year old niece is visiting for the summer. My youngest is now 14. And at the shop every day I am surrounded by women who are about half my age. So I have been thinking a lot lately about life, lessons, the things that have made me who I am & the hard-won wisdom that comes with life experience.
I have made some stupid mistakes & wasted precious time being resentful, or angry or hurt. But I have (mostly) learned from my mistakes & try to always strive to be better. So to my 25 year old self, I would like to share some important lessons...
Invest in nice underwear. It will give you more subtle confidence than anything else in your closet
So to all the beautiful young women in my life -- please take what you need from this list, listen to your mom, and I love you.
