A woman should have:

  1. I got this in an email and thought i would share:
    A 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 or 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 old age.....

    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
    family....

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

    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....

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

    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....

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

    where to go...be it 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....
