33 Choices Every Woman Should Make


In a few days, I will celebrate my 33rd birthday so I’ve been taking time to reflect over all that I’ve experienced and learned thus far. Perhaps one of the best lessons life has taught me is that my choices are what shape my life. Over the years, I can see how my relationships, health, career, and finances improved as my choices improved. Although every woman has different goals, these are 33 choices I think all women should make to be happier, healthier, and more successful in their lives and careers.

  2. Choose to do what you know is in your best interest even when others don’t approve or understand it.

  4. Choose to remove yourself from toxic environments swiftly and without feeling guilty.
