I’m excited to have a guest post on Simplicity Relished today. Daisy is a young minimalist who I first noticed because we were reading and commenting on some of the same blogs. I really admire the choices she has made to live her life intentionally from a very young age. I don’t recall even knowing about minimalism in college.
This is the second of two guest posts that I recently wrote reflecting on what I would have liked to know back in my 20s. If you missed the first, you can find it here on Money Saving Mom.
I love the enthusiasm and values driven choices that people like Daisy and her peers are living by. It has been twenty years since I graduated college and I’ve found myself reflecting on choices and advice that I would have appreciated receiving as a young graduate.
BACK TO THE FUTURE
If I could go back in time and give my 23-year-old self advice, here is what I would tell her:

I just hit my “mid-twenties” last week. I can’t wait to see your bits of wisdom for the next 6 years 🙂
Thanks for dropping by Megan!

I love this advice! I’m 23 now, and definitely agree with all of this, in fact most of it I do it now.

I really love this Angela! Especially #3, Invest in experiences, not things. Oh boy Is that ever good advice! It’s taken me some time to learn that one, but it is so important. I actually write a blog about minimalist fashion. So I’m right there with you on trying to live with less. Great guest post!
Thanks Karin! I’d love to check out your blog as well. I’m not much of a fashionista but love the minimalist aspect!

These are all extremely valuable tips! I think the fostering of relationships between women from all generations could do us all some good, honestly. Some of us have hard-earned wisdom to share with those that are younger, and those younger ladies have such a fresh perspective – I love learning from women of all ages! Well said 🙂
Thank you Michelle! I agree that inter generational relationships are SO valuable.
