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 she can 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 so interesting she looks forward to retelling it in her old age.
  • Her very own 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.

and should know…

  • How she can 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 she needs try harder and when she should 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 it’s over.
  • What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more.
  • How she can 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 she can 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. ***

***3 more months and I am smoke-free since a year. I wasn’t sure at first, but now I know I can accomplish almost everything and it feels good 🙂
