  • If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
  • it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
  • scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
  • than my own meandering
  • experience…I will dispense this advice now. Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
  • understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
  • But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
  • recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
  • you and how fabulous you really looked….You are NOT as fat as you
  • imagine. Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
  • effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
  • bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
  • never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
  • on some idle Tuesday. Do one thing everyday that scares you… Sing. Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t _put up with
  • people who are reckless with yours. Floss. Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
  • you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
  • yourself. Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
  • succeed in doing this, tell me how. Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements. Stretch. Don’t feel _guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
  • life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
  • wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
  • olds I know still don’t. Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone. Maybe you’ll _marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe
  • you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
  • chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
  • congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
  • choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
  • use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
  • think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
  • own.. Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room. Read the directions, even if you don’t _follow them. Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.
  • Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.
  • Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
  • people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few: you
  • should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
  • lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
  • knew when you were young. Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
  • in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel. Accept certain inalienable truths: prices will rise, _politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
  • that when you were young: prices were reasonable, politicians were
  • noble and children respected their elders. Respect your elders. Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have _a trust fund, maybe you’ll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
  • might run out. Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
  • look 85. Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
  • supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
  • fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
  • ugly parts and recycling it for more than
  • it’s worth. But trust me on the sunscreen…
