In this month, a month devoted to love, I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about one of the most important aspects in any woman’s life: the love she has for her friends. In my last post, I talked about how important it is to find like-minded friends and not waste time and energy […]

In the last Challenge, you were asked to face and dissolve your lizard fears around boundary-setting.
