It started when I was a little girl. I had Wonder Woman Underoos, they made me powerful. I KNEW when I wore them, I could conquer ANYTHING!Фазан
When I found this bracelet in an antique store in Oklahoma, it spoke to that little girl in me…with a cuff…secretly…I would have powers. I would feel stronger. I could conquer ANYTHING!
As a girl, and later as a woman, I often feel like…well, I am not enough. I need something MORE, to be more, to do more, to handle more…
This tends to be a pattern I notice in women in general. Comparing ourselves to super heroes, tv wives and moms, cartoon characters (I once cried because I was not as nice as Little Bears mom…true story). We beat ourselves up while rarely giving ourselves credit.
Wanna know what’s worse? We expect, almost demand, to do it all ALONE…like accepting help would lessen what we are. We are WRONG! We are STRONGER for knowing when we need help, and smarter for knowing where and how to get it. Even Wonder Woman was part of a TEAM!
Its ok to want to be more and to do more but stand back and take stock and realize who and what you ARE!! AMAZING!
I originally wrote this blog entry well over two years ago and while it is still VERY relevant in my life and in the lives of many women, I’m sure…a few things have changed.
I lost the bracelet. Sad. and….
I seem to have lost that need to be perfect and in doing so, I realized I AM enough! HOOORAY!!
And I am here to tell you, YOU ARE ENOUGH too! TODAY, as you are.
Dun dun dun…
