Forgive yourself for mistakes. Everybody makes them the most important thing is that you’ve learned from them. (And don’t do them again)
Invest in a good face regimen. Even though black don’t crack, take care of your skin so you’ll look like Diahann Caroll not Joan Rivers. Invest in a face cream with some spf and take off your makeup at night if nothing else.
Own at least 1 piece of clothing that makes you feel sexy. Have a dress that fits you perfectly or a pair of heels that make your legs look like Tina Turner’s.
Buy yourself a piece of jewelry. It will make you feel good to buy something for yourself that you can keep forever. Not having think of an ex whenever you look in your jewelry box, Priceless.
Have some money saved in case of emergency
Know the definition of love. If someone says they love you they should also show you or else, they don’t really love you.
Treat people how you want to be treated. You’re not alone in this world and it’s not all about you.
Know how to get around. If you have a car, know what you need to do to maintain it. Also know your local bus routes and have the number to a taxi service in your phone. You don’t want to ever be stuck without a way out.
Speak Your Mind. Don’t hold things back, ‘A closed mouth don’t get fed”. Speak up for what you want at your job, talk to professors at school, talk to your parents, friends and partners. Give and command respect.
Know how to handle your liquor. We are too old to be the drunk girl at the club. Know you limits and be a lady. No one wants to have to take care of someone when everyone else just wants to have fun.
Know your wines. I’m not saying you need to have the expertise of a sommelier but know the difference between a shiraz and a chardonnay. Also know what foods go best with what wines.
Accept yourself. Change the things that you can and need/want to and accept the things that you can’t. It’s a sign of maturity.
