What Every Woman Should Have…

I have to thank my good girlfriend Allison who forwarded this to me. It is said to have been written by Maya Angelou. She has denied the claim.

I love sharing good wisdom every few Wednesdays. I think this is powerful.

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own even if she never wants
to or needs to…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her
dreams wants to see her in an hour…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …
a youth she’s content to leave behind….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her old age….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …..
a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black
lace bra…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
one friend who always makes her laugh… and one who
lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone
else in her family…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a
recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….
a feeling of control over her destiny…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
how to fall in love without losing herself..

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
how to quit a job,
break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without ruining the friendship…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
when to try harder… and when to walk away…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
that she can’t change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
that her childhood may not have been perfect…but it’s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
what she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
how to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
whom she can trust,
whom she can’t,
and why she shouldn’t
take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
where to go…
be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…
or a charming inn in the woods…
when her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
what she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
a month…and a year…

I’d love to know what YOU think every woman should have?

  1. I agree with this in every aspect. I think it is vital that women can support themselves both financially, emotionally and physically. I realised the importance of this after learning from the mistakes of adults around me, promoted on TV shows such as ‘The Real Houswives’ and so forth.

    My favorite parts are; “A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ….enough money within her control to move out
    and rent a place of her own even if she never wants to or needs to…” and also; “EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…how to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it…”

  2. I think every woman should have something to call her own – something separate from her spouse and kids – knitting, a hobby, a career, volunteering, SOMETHING that mentally stimulates her, challenges her, and gives her a purpose.

  3. Every woman should love the smell of her own farts, and look at her poops when she’s done, and find her Down There beautiful!! I believe every odour is a like a precious petal, because we are all God’s special little flowers!!!

  4. Every woman should know how to have fun, whether she’s 14, 25, or 40.
    Every woman should know the right places to shop.
    Every woman should know how to get spiritual upliftment and how to uplift hr soul.
