We’re into the new year now and the balloons have been launched, but we think there’s still time to reflect on what more of our women had to say about their world as they saw it in 2011. Here are some quotes to ponder as we all take on the challenges of the coming months…

Laura Munson for TWE Reflections for the New Year

Laura Munson– Author

“I had been dealing with so much rejection for so many years I realized I was in a miserable place. I was defining my personal happiness on something that was completely out of my control. I realized that was insanity. That is not the way to live your life.”

Maryam Bibi– Founder of “Khwendo Kor” in Pakistan

“I founded the organization in 1993. We believe that communities and women who know their own issues are able to devise strategies and solve the troubles they are faced with provided they can become part of the decision-making…”

Kimberly Fowler of YAS for TWE Reflections for the New Year 2012

Kimberly Fowler– Founder of YAS Fitness

“I was diagnosed with a brain tumor while in law school and was given six months to live. It was an extremely stressful time for me. Yoga gave me the opportunity to de-stress, to breathe, and it gave me the ability to think.”

Sharon Blynn from Bald is Beautiful for TWE Reflections for 2012

Sharon Blynn– Creator of baldisbeautiful.org

“I am healthier in mind, body, and spirit than I was before having cancer. It heightened and intensified every experience — both good and bad ones — in my life. I had an innate sense that the only thing I could do was to embrace every part of this experience as my teacher…”

Maman Marie for TWE Reflections for 2012

Maman Marie Nzoli– Founder of COPERMA in Congo

“I would like it if COPERMA could succeed at helping the girl-mothers and the victims of sexual violence and also to help them psychologically. Someone who is traumatized can’t work; they have trouble continuing to breathe and live. I want to effectively help the rural populations because they’re often forgotten.”

Carie Lemack and TWE Reflections for 2012

Carie Lemack– Documentarian, formed “Global Survivors Network”

“We should talk about the victims who are going on and trying to live their new lives, who are heroic, who are suffering with a lot of pain, some who have been injured forever, and some who have lost loved ones…those are the people I focus on, who inspire me, and remind me what it’s all about.”

Diane Meier– Author, MEIER Founder

“Self-expression, the idea of presenting yourself in an authentic and personally original way, is vitally important. It’s really all you have to leave of yourself– the clear impression that you were here on earth.”
