When I first saw this article and read the ‘eight things’, I immediately thought it was silly. The first several things that women need to have are materialistic, and really irrelevant in the grand scheme of life. But then, when I got to the final question, I realized its purpose. This list isn’t about things you need to have to make you happy, it’s about knowing yourself. It’s about knowing and honestly answering these questions and being confident in who you are. It’s about not being afraid of what you like or prefer, even if it’s not ‘cool’. This list is really saying that a happy woman knows herself, loves herself, and shines with confidence. I’ve seen this list on several other sites and blogs, and finally decided that I wanted to do one for myself.
