Women as Victors in the News this Week

Art imitates life...we've heard it a zillion times.  In the news today, the major trending activity was around some incredible women. 

What do Maria Shriver,  Jaycee Dugard, Elizabeth Smart, and Kate Middleton Duchess of Cambridge and Terri and Linda Jamison (the Psychic Twins) have in common today?  They are each strong, intelligent women who have made the choice to live in the now and to show us how to move ahead powerfully and with purpose into whatever the future may hold.

Most powerful quotes and headlines of the day:  In one week, Maria Shriver has "filed for divorce and purchased a $10 mansion for herself and her kids (with her own money), "Jaycee Dugard says she cherishes all the freedoms of her new life," Elizabeth Smart accepted a position as ABC Correspondent focusing on child abduction and missing person cases.  She said she is, "looking at all the different options and trying to decide where I can make the biggest difference, where I can have the biggest effect for good," and on the royal North America tour, "in a touching moment, Duchess Kate Middleton granted the wish of a little girl with cancer to meet a real princess" and the Psychic Twins braved showcasing their passion and gift of clairvoyance on ABC's The View talk show.

What an amazing week of thought-provoking words and actions of some incredibly brave and open-hearted women.  It's encouraging, and empowering to watch others forge forward, as we all want to do, to claim a better life for themselves and those around them.
