As we women mature we are, of course, going through many changes, if you were a mentor to a young woman right now, what advice would you give to her?
There is a sweet girl that I know..she is 27 and we talk a lot...she enjoys my company and we have great conversations..I share health info, gardening tips and things of that nature with her..she is a bit naive, which is the beauty of youth, but also I tell her to just be aware of things.
It is so difficult for a young girl to lose her mom..my prayers go out to them and God bless you for being there Term.
Dont take abuse in any form!! verbal,mental,physical,etc....if you r in the company of someone that does that..........get out!!! never accept that as normal!!
Take your health, not your age, seriously.
Think ahead, and live in the present.
Seek to understand before being understood.
Speak the Truth, and show grace.
I’m sure there’s much more!
"Treat others as if they are who they ought to be and you help them to become who they are capable of becoming." Goethe
Remember that no one is perfect but God.People will hurt you, you must forgive them, but you don’t have to stay in a relationship with someone who keeps on doing that. There are more people who try and who care than not. Still, most of us care for ourselves first, and it can feel lonely sometimes, and feel like no one EVER cares about us.You will reap what you sow.Never stop learning.Enjoy the good in every day and give thanks for it every night.
Don't waste your time trying to change people. Spend your time instead becoming the best you possible.
Very well said Coachmom. I love that!!
Enjoy every moment of your life.Stop to smell the roses.
Woohoo!! Feathermaye nails it again!
Trust the Lord with all your heart.Love the Lord with all your heart.Love others....forgive others...
And be the best person you can be and don’t settle for anything but the best. Never settle....stand your ground....and give 110% in everything you do!!
INVEST IN YOURSELF!!!
Stay in school, try to follow your dreams, and become educated. Never settle for something you don’t want, and never give up trying. Be respectful of your elders, they usually know a lot more and can teach you a lot more about life. Cherish your parents and family, sometimes that’s all you have. Respect others points of view and accept that all people are individuals and no one is perfect. Don’t expect perfection in life or people, we are only human and make mistakes, just like you do. Learn to forgive, and communicate your feelings and don’t hold grudges within your family, because time lost is never made up. Learn to love yourself, and you can love others. Take care of yourself, and be the best person you can be, and you will never regret it.
Heather, Fantastic answer!!!!!
I can only add don’t stress, keep it in perspective, pick your battles, and remember you only get one body, take care of it.
I work with at least 3 bossy 20 somethings. So for me I would say that my advice would be to Be Nice... its not all about you. and dont talk AT me.
ty feather!! Perfect!!!
I love all your answers...thank you for sharing this with me as I interact with young women...in my neighborhood, at the gym, at various functions...it helps to have lots of input.
