Maybe young women don’t wonder whether they can have it all any longer, but in case any of you are wondering, of course you can have it all. … It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. It will not be anything like what you think it will be like, but surprises are good for you. And don’t be frightened: you can always change your mind. I know: I’ve had four careers and three husbands.
Such a great piece of advice. Healthy perspective is important. Be realistic with your expectations and everything will fall into place. It may not be the way you imagined it, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t supposed to be that way.
