It’s our month.  Let’s celebrate our essence!

I’m sharing something that most likely a lot of you have already received in your emails, but for those still in the dark:

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
….one old love …..
she can imagine going back to…
and one who reminds her of 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 will make her 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…
…who she can trust,
who she can’t,
and why she shouldn’t take it personally…
…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…

And always remember, we’re all beautiful. 🙂
