a woman should have...
...one old love she can imagine going back to and one who reminds her how far she has come.
...a youth she's content to leave behind.
...a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to re-telling 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 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 w/out ruining the relationship.
...when to work 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 that it's over.
...what she would and wouldn't do for love or more.
...whom she can and can't trust.
...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 accompish in a day, a month, a year.
