The kind of woman who doesn’t look up guys she’s dated or girls she’s had falling outs with on social media so that she can gloat about ‘winning’.

The kind of woman who wears a curated outfit every day instead of a uniform of the same kind of pants and loose-fitting top.

The kind of woman who plays piano maybe!

The kind of woman who doesn’t worry about whether she’s smart enough.

The kind of woman who has everything she wants and pays for it herself.

The kind of woman who feels happy about very small things every day, like catching a small glimpse of the city skyline on her walk home.

The kind of woman who has a box of letters people have written her over the years, and the pages are full of so many important things.

The kind of woman believes, but also recognizes that is not a negation of disbelief.

The kind of woman who lives in a whole world made up only of the things she likes. TC mark
