By Anissa Mayhew |

Being a woman definitely comes with it’s advantages.

Guys will open jars for you, they’ll (usually) hold the door for you and there’s just something so RIGHT about the smell of good shoes.

From the time you’re born a female you have the innate ability to weave magic with a swish of your little fingers.

In high school you are a walking, talking, breathing jigsaw puzzle with breasts.

In your twenties you become slightly less mystical but still challenging….with breasts.

Thirty sees men begin to get a grasp on women just when females will realize the truth: THEY MAY NEVER REALLY UNDERSTAND US.….but they like breasts.

Every stage of life will change. You will grow. Mature. Yes, you will have breasts.

I turned 38 at my birthday this year.

There was something I learned this close to 40.

THIS GIRL NEEDS TO BE SLAPPED STUPID.

Yes, I DO like being a girl.

But, I gotta tell you, for me? There are times and things that just sucked.

    I have to add hair and make-up. So much time and money spent on making sure we don’t look dead or get asked “Are you feeling OK? You look like you might be sick.” every time we leave the house.
