A Woman’s Checklist

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 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…
  • Whom she can trust, whom 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…
  • Standard
