WCW // Princess Diana

I’d like to be a queen in people’s hearts...
— Princess Diana

I knew what my job was; it was to go out and meet the people and love them.
— Princess Diana

Growing up, like many little girls, I was infatuated with princesses. Big surprise, right? The thought of wearing a sparkly tiara all day really appealed to me. 

I was particularly enthralled with Princess Diana. The story of a young, unknown girl catching the attention of a prince.  Truly the stuff of fairy tales. You would have thought Disney wrote the script. I would re-enact the story with my Princess Diana paper dolls over and over again.

As I grew though, I realized that it wasn't her fancy dresses and crowns that made her such a beloved princess.  It was instead the example of love and acceptance that she set for the masses.  She dedicated her, much too brief, life in the service of others.  

That's why she continues to inspire and is our #womancrushwednesday

Who are some women that inspire you?
