Every woman should have ...
Sometimes it amazes me how my mind wanders. I just find myself thinking of the most random things: from court shoes to panty hose, birthstones to KIA Motors cars. I came to the conclusion that it is because, having just finished my final year undergrad exams, I am now at a turning point in my life: decided the path I shall take into my future.
Anyway, I came across these words in some weekend magazine article and found them somehow linked to the random pitter patter of my mind:
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 and 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 re-telling it in her old age;
The realisation that she is actually going to have an old age and some money set aside to fund it;
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 honoured.
A resume that is not even the slightest bit padded;
A feeling of control over her destiny;
A skin care regimen, an exercise routine and a plan for dealing with those few facets of life that don’t get better after 30;
A solid start on a satisfying career, a satisfying relationship, and all those other facets of life that do get better after 30;
