With age, we mature and grow into wonderful women, but even though we are older, wiser and more empowered than ever, it can still be easy to forget our true value.

When life takes a difficult turn, our confidence can be knocked, and our sense of self-worth may take a nosedive.

This is why we recently asked some of our wonderful clients to think about what they would say to their 18-year-old selves, to boost their confidence, if they had the chance.

The new ‘Note to Self’ Series

We’ve collated these words of wisdom into a ‘Note to Self’ e-book and, in this new blog series, we’ll be sharing the stories in the hope that they inspire you.

Since their teens, these ladies have lived, loved and learnt so much. We felt that we could all benefit from their experiences and advice.

In this edition, you’ll meet Anita.

Anita’s ‘Note to Self’…

Hello you,

Never thought I would get to impart advice to the most stubborn, headstrong know it all I’ve ever met. Never ever change that!!!! Be the person you are right now regardless of what’s to come.

You will face loss but don’t lose yourself in it …find light in the dark and live the life YOU want.

Your empathy and compassion make you special because you will always put others first.

Surprisingly, motherhood will be the greatest gift you’ll ever receive and if mums got grades you’d get an A+.

This letter could go on forever, so I’ll share some top tips….which you will ignore !!

Good friends last a lifetime, look after them.

If someone wants to change you, run for the hills.

Negative people are a drain, avoid them too.

Follow your dreams wherever they take you.

You will spend so long trying to be a badass that you will forget you are soft and pretty….when she shows you this it’s a game-changer.
