"The woman who worries about what people think of her, wouldn't worry so much if she only knew how seldom they do." _ unknown
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...
- one old love she can imagine going back to
- and one who reminds her how far she has come
- enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her
own even if she never wants to and needs to
- something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her dreams wants
to see her in an hour
- a youth she's content to leave behind
- a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her
- the realization that she is actually going to have an old age and
some money set aside to fund it
- a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra
- one friend who always makes her laugh and one who lets her cry
- a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her
- eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a
meal that will make her guests feel honored
- a resume that is not even slightest bit padded
- a feeling of control over her destiny.
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...
- how to fall in love without losing herself
- how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend
without ruining the friendship.
- when to try harder and when to walk away
- how to have a good time at a party she'd never choose to attend
- .how to ask for what she wants in a way that makes it most likely
she'll get it
- that her childhood may not have been perfect, but its over
- what she would and wouldn't do for love or more
- how to live alone, even if she doesn't like it
- who she can trust, who she can't, and why she shouldn't take it
- where to go: be it to her best friend's kitchen table or a charming
inn in the woods when her soul needs soothing
- what she can and can't accomplish in a day, a month and a year.
