Part of that is owed to the people I have met, the women who have guided me with their intelligence, their strength, and their wisdom. 

In that light I would like to dedicate this series of posts Fierce Lady Friends: The Seven Lessons for the women in my life, my tribe,  and to the women out there who are living, supporting and teaching one another. In the coming weeks, I will be posting the Seven Lessons from my own perspective and experience and sharing a bit about the women in my life who were my teachers in the formative time in my life that is now coming to a close.  The Lessons are: 
Acceptance, Boundaries, Compassion, Courage, Unconditional Love, Trust, and Sisterhood.
