I’m 62 and I’d tell her things get better with age. I feel like my most productive and creative right now. And I’ve got no more fucks to give. Aging is everything.— Elisabeth Dale (@TheBreastLife) 17. september 2018
“Bad boys” are not fun or sexy. They’re actually bad people and will hurt you in some way shape or form.— ❄️Kimba❄️ (@kimba__what) 16. september 2018
Stop trying to make everyone else happy. Owning things is not happiness, watch your money. Just because they are family doesn’t mean they cannot be toxic.— Heather R (@Heather_C_R) 17. september 2018

Wear sunscreen. Be consistently healthy in your eating. And...Never settle for a partner who doesn’t love and adore and respect you and lift you up. Stay true to who you are and Always speak up for yourself. Be strong and smart.— Meredith Salenger (@MeredthSalenger) 16. september 2018
Don’t wait. Don’t wait for opportunities, seek them out. Don’t wait for men, let them go. Don’t wait for the “right time” to travel, just buy the ticket and go. Don’t wait until it’s convenient to spend time w/ people you love, you’ll never have as much time as you want.— Jennifer White (@JWhitePubRadio) 17. september 2018
Learn to be alone and enjoy it. Loneliness is temporary but tough; find healthy ways to cope. Master personal finance, avoid credit card debt and save early and often. Worry less. Exercise for mental health; the body benefits are icing. Believe in yourself.— Laura K (@makebrownies) 17. september 2018

Spend time with the people you love, especially elderly family members. They will be gone before you realize it. Listen to their stories, remember them, and tell your children or others those wonderful stories. Good luck to you! ❤️— Lee Ann (@Leeleefix) 17. september 2018
