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…

Receiving this kandi was probably the most meaningful moment that I took from Paradiso. Anyone who knows even a bit about me knows that this year I have faced some of the most difficult and challenging struggles of my entire life. My emotions have been on a roller coaster over the past several months, but I am finally starting to understand that life will always have it’s ups and downs. 
During the very last song in Porter Robinson’s set he played Language. This was a moment I have been waiting so long for and knew that it would be nothing short of emotional. As I was singing, smiling, and dancing with some of my very best friends, I realized that I can not continue to dwell on the negative aspects of my life but rather on all the positive ones. As my best friend put a peace sign in my direction, I knew that it would be a special moment. As we configured the handshake representing everything we stand for- peace, love, unity, and respect -  she transferred this bracelet over to my wrist. She just looked at me, smiled, and told me it said i’ll be okay and to this day this one of the most monumental and emotional moments of my life. This bracelet, this moment, my friendships, and my love for myself and everyone around me had never been stronger. And she was definitely right- I will be okay.

Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn’t make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.
