Jennifer Lunn Posted 10 months ago If you could give your twenty-year-old self one piece of advice, what would it be? Why? What I eventually learned is that decisions, seemingly insignificant ones, alter the trajectory of one's entire life - and the decade of the twenties is THE crossroad of life. Jump INTO life (don't simply let it happen to you). Stretch out, reach out, think out-(side the box). Establish new friendships,adding to the old; find a career which makes you happy- and then it will not become 'work'; don't be afraid to travel - it can give you perspective and insight. Try to resist the thought pattern..."I'll worry about it later"... as it is THE most undermining there is. Make a family (in whatever sense that is meaningful to you) - genuine connection with other human beings is what life is all about, and it provides a sheltering that is crucial to your happiness and well being. Be aware of the natural world around you - it has so much to teach, and has a grounding influence in a world that has gone mad. Have goals and be true to both them and you. Don't settle.
