With approximately 40% over women over 70 living life tough – many sleeping in cars and others couch surfing – we need to understand that preparation needs to occur at a young age. I’ve spoken to many school students, generally in the last two years of senior school about being prepared for life to change.
It is important equally for young girls in particular to follow their dreams, but hard work and dedication in those younger years will certainly set them up for adaptation to new surroundings should life deal them a nasty blow. An nasty it is – a bolt from the blue with very little warning and often no real explanation. That part is up to us psychologically to figure out, before we have a change to renew.
