I’m back with Part 2 of my 4-part series on how to live an extraordinary life as a woman. Last week, we cracked open the topic of emotions. Today, I want to go farther. Because awareness and insight will only get you so far.  Feelings and emotions are not – and cannot be – a...

Who among us has not reached for something with heart, soul, blood, and guts, and ended up trounced, trammeled, and shattered?
