What Every Woman Should Have


One old boyfriend you can imagine going back to and one who reminds you how FAR you’ve come.

Enough money within your control to move out and rent a place on your own even if you never want to or need to.

Something PERFECT to wear if the employer or man of your dreams wants to see you in an hour.

A purse, a suitcase, and an umbrella you’re not ashamed to be seen carrying.

A youth you’re content to move beyond.

A past JUICY enough that you are looking forward to retelling it in your old age.

The realization that you are going to have an old age and some money set aside to help fund it.

A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, A BLACK LACE BRA.

One friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry.

A good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in your family.

8 matching plates, wineglasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make your guests feel honored.

A resume that is not even the slightest bit padded.

A feeling of control over your destiny.

A skin regime, an exercise routine, and a plan for dealing with those few facets if life that don’t get better.

A solid start on: a satisfying career a satisfying relationship and all those other facets if life that DO GET BETTER.


How to fall in love without losing yourself.

How you feel about having kids.

How to quit a job, break up with a man, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.

When to try harder and when to walk away.

How to kiss a man in a way that communicates p e r f e c t l y what you would and wouldn’t like to happen NEXT.

How to ask for what you want in a way that makes it most likely you’ll get it.

How to have a good time at a party you’d never chose to attend.

That you can’t change  the width of your hips, the length of your calves, or the nature of your parents.

That your childhood may not have been perfect BUT IT’S OVER.

What you would or wouldn’t do for love or money.

How to live alone even if you don’t like it.

Who you can TRUST and who you can’t and why you shouldn’t take it personally.

Where to go, be it your best friend’s kitchen table or a charming inn hidden in the woods when your soul needs soothing.

What you can and can’t accomplish in a day, a month, a year.

Why they say life begins right now!

From 30 things every woman should have & should know by the time she's 30 by Pamela Redmond Satran
