Fierce Lady Friends: Introduction to the Seven Lessons

Seven Lessons my friends taught me, Friendship and Growing up, Value of Women Friends

Something has changed, I think it is me. I no longer look back and see only my mistakes, now I can see all of the people I am grateful for. I see the lessons I have learned and appreciate the experiences I have had. 
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.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master…

Contraries

Without contraries is no progres- sion. Attraction and repulsion, rea- son and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.
