  1. Right on, bingo, home run, ding ding ding!!!  EXCELLENT advice, Kelly.  This advice should have been given to us when we were 7 years told and we should have been made to read it every night before going to sleep.  That’s all I’m saying.  Now THIS is the kind of information that really good motivational speakers SHOULD be doling out!  And thank you for the shout out for 12 Secrets to High  Self-Esteem!

  2. Thank you Linda!!! And you are welcome for the shout out. Your CD set is a great way to take back our self esteem. I am amazed at how many women out there are hurting because they don’t have a significant other – and in turn they feel insignificant. Just one more fairy tale myth we bought – that we need a charming prince to complete us. I hope in some small way we can help change the broken princesses of the world find their happier ever after. 

  3. What a fantastic letter of advice for that woman – all girls and women- Kelly!  I’m actually going to forward this to my 21 year old son who is living on his own and not in a relationship right now because he has expressed that he’s not sure how to be without a girlfriend.  Yikes!!  Fairy Godmother Kelly can help!!  Thanks!

  4. Yikes! The day I’m considered an expert will be the day they call Kentucky Fried Chicken good for you. The only thing I can say is that at 21 most girls are looking for Mr. Right, and most boys are looking for Miss Right Now. I’m not sure how it happens – but (at least in my circles) the girls start dreaming of the white gown, the picket fence, and the 2.5 children while the boys just want to have fun and see life one day at a time. If I had it to do over again, I would have stopped looking for prince charming to complete me – and just had fun. Hard to do since many girls are wired to be relationship people, not hook up people – and many boys just the opposite. And there are exceptions of course. I had guy friends who were always in a serious relationship and never spent any time alone. Some of them regretted it. I’m just saying.  :) 

  5. Beautifully written, and I forwarded to my daughters as well. Although at least to this point, they have both chosen to focus on themselves, rather than a guy. I want them to have an outstanding relationship with someone who respects them from top to bottom (which is a lot since they are 5″10″ and 5″11″).

  6. It’s no wonder Colette that your daughters don’t hang their happiness on finding the guy. You taught them by example – and what a wonderful example you are to follow. Well done, my friend. Well done.
