She is her own SUPERHERO.
Subtitle: hectic days in my part of the world. Im always reading and commenting if not able to frequently post. The below is crossposted at my site: MizFitOnline.com
What one thought do I have rattling around in my head?
One which I know doesn’t hold much weight now (as Im Mama enough to realize at this point she’s merely parroting what she’s heard around the house) but one which I pray is indicative of the woman she will grow to be.
This weekend my daughter ran around the park with a towel tucked into the back of her shirt.
She climbed, swung, jumped, ran, skipped, rolled, & cheered (herself on).
One of the fathers approached her, touched the towel and asked if it were her cape.
After she nodded he inquired if she were Super Girl.
She said no.
He asked if she were Superman.
She shook her head.
He ran thru a litany of superheroes (some of whom Id never heard) & the Tornado stubbornly informed him each time that was not whom she was.
When he finally asked her: What superhero are you then?
She exclaimed “Im my own superhero!!!” & ran off to play.
As members of my tribe say: I KVELLED.
And then I prayed.
I prayed that this seemingly insignificant exchange might be the spark which ignites the flame of her truly believing she is her own superhero.
The start of the realization that everything she needs already exists within her & merely awaits her discovery.
Even on my worst days I believe I am my own superhero if only by virtue of the fact that I find it within myself to keep on keepin’ on.
And on my best day? I KNOW Im my own damn superhero because I know I can move mountains.
I know there’s nothing I cant do if I try (you know, due to my superhero status) and Im not afraid to try.
Please to indulge me. Please to compliment yourself.
How have you acted as your own superhero lately?
What have you done which even *you* almost weren’t certain you could?
Or, if you dare say you’ve NOT been your own superhero as of late, how will you make time & effort this weekend to don a virtual cape ?
Please to hit us all up in the comments.
and yeah. I SO WISH I had a cape to give away. please to imagine.
