Should

To all the beautiful ladies in my life, friend or foe. A little something that I feel like sharing.

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 it's 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...

..should also know ..
..to differentiate between the glitters and the gold...

..and should also have the compassion to forgive and forget...and start anew..

..and to realise that there is no such thing as the perfect male/mate..
