A Woman Should Have…

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 . 

This was just so good I had to post. I believe it’s words of wisdom from Maya Angelou.

  1. I have most of these things, but I definitely have: a cordless drill, a set of screwdrivers (and wrenches) and a black lace bra 🙂
