A Woman Should Have...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...one old love she can imagine going back to...
and one who reminds her how far she has come.

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own even if she never
wants to or needs to...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...something perfect to wear if the employer or
date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...a youth she's content to leave behind...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age....

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a
black lace bra...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...one friend who always makes her laugh ... and
one who lets her cry...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...a good piece of furniture not previously owned
by anyone else in her family...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems,
and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests
feel honored.

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...a feeling of control over her destiny...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...how to fall in love without losing herself...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and
confront a friend without ruining the friendship...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...when to try harder .... and when to walk away...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...that she can't change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her
parents...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...that her childhood may not have been
perfect...but its over...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...what she would and wouldn't do for love or
more...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...how to live alone... even if she doesn't like it...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why
she shouldn't take it personally...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...where to go... be it to her best friend's kitchen
table... or a charming inn in the woods... when her
soul needs soothing...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

...what she can and can't accomplish in a day...
a month...and a year...
