The most important point I can express is to tell young women not to want anyone else’s life. It’s a myth to think that anyone has it more together than you do or that someone is far happier than you are. What you see on the surface is never really what’s going on in someone else’s life. I am 48 years old, and what I’ve learned as I mature is that the more I dare to be myself, the more I get to have a life built on joy and adventure and peace. And if people don’t like it, it’s their problem, not mine. All that matters is that you are living your truth–that’s where real power lies.
