Every Woman Should Know…

* The name of her first love. Even if he never loved you back, that first love lasts forever.

* The phone number for her doctor, the local take-out restaurant and her best friend. It’s what your Contact List is for.

* What makes her special, and she should never, ever lose that focus.

* What she wants most. And once you know it, make a plan to get it.

* How to say, “no.” Once you can say no to work, friends, family members and others, you’ll have regained some control of your time.

* When it’s destined to be a serious relationship and when it’s just time to walk away.

* The name of one person (or pet) who loves her.

* That friendship can remain an undercurrent in your life rather than a fixation.

* How to wear concealer, mascara and a the right shade of lipstick.

* That very few of us will ever look good with red hair or with blonde. It’s okay to be a brunette.

* How to make tea. You never know when you’re really going to need a soothing cup at the end of a hellish day.

* The lyrics to her favorite song, and she should sing them with abandon as often as possible – especially if she can’t carry a tune.

* Her correct bra size. Apparently eighty percent of us are wearing the wrong bra size. Or maybe we’re wearing the wrong size boobs.

* How many sick days she gets per year and how to get away with using them when she’s perfectly healthy so that she can really enjoy them.

* How and where to vote. We fought for the right, so let’s use it!

* Her personal limits in every area – how much bad reality television, alcohol, sleep, or junk food can you really stand?
