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.

V&E Philosophy of Wellness

Many of us take a top down approach to our wellness thinking that if we change the way we eat, if we work out, buy ethical products then we are achieving wellness. Yet there is still an upsetting amount of judgement and shame that we put on ourselves and others and the initiative fails. Why is this? Changing your perspective might truly be the first step.
