Victory comes in many shapes and sizes, varying in color from woman to woman and situation to situation. Small adjustments that bring about positive change are victories, along with huge leaps that may change the entire framework of one’s life, and they both deserve equal celebration.
The final chapter in Victorious Woman! rounds out the messages in previous chapters by defining, in a clear and compassionate manner, the behaviors of those women who consider themselves victims and of those who are merely “surviving.” Kelly illuminates the patterns that some women get stuck in that can keep them from Moving forward, however she gently reassures that those patterns are reversible once identified. In her conclusion, she outlines the woman who is “advancing” beyond circumstances that are holding her back and what her victory looks like, leading the reader to the awareness that victory is most certainly there for the taking, and it is up to each one of us to reach out and claim it.
