I’m blessed to know a lot of wise women. Last year I felt like a wise woman made a difference in my life by offering me advice that I desperately needed at the time. I’d been struggling with a couple of important life decisions, and one day, while on a ride to a day hike at Mount Rainier, I told my friend about something I’d been struggling with. She gave me some sage advice that set me free. She told me that I had the power to make changes in my life and I was in control. I didn’t have to feel stuck. I could release myself at any point. I use that advice when weighing new options, discovering opportunities, and taking risks. I am so grateful for my friend Tracey, the wise woman in my own life.
