Cindy Crawford has two words of advice for her younger self: you're good enough and you should probably have more fun.

The 48-year-old model graced the cover of the latest issue of Michigan Avenue and opened up about the biggest lessons she's learned over the years.

"I think young people—and adults—are plagued by our insecurities. [Mine was] worrying that I didn't belong or that I didn't deserve to belong, or whatever."

Crawford went on to say, "The other thing I would tell my young self is to just let loose a bit more and have fun. I was very cautious and careful—which probably helped lead to the career that I had—but there were a few times I could have had a little bit more fun."

The mother of two explained how coming from "such a sheltered small town" made it overwhelming at times to step foot into the scene in the Big Apple.

"It was easier for me to put my nose in a book and just kind of block it all out. I didn't quite know how to navigate it, so I just chose not to," she shared.

"But looking back, I was like, maybe I should have gone on Armani's boat for a week, or do things that [I didn't do because] I was afraid of feeling out of my league."

The brunette stunner admitted that nowadays she throws caution to the wind during her annual trips to the South of France with her husband, Rande Gerber, and friends.

"That's my one week a year that I dance on top of a table every day at lunch. I probably should have done it when I was 20 and things weren't jiggling so much. I could still pull it off at 35 or 40."
