Wonder Woman Inside
by Yvonne Williams Casaus
We all have a little Wonder Woman inside. I remember as a kid I loved to wear my Wonder Woman Underoos. They were my favorite. I used to feel like I could take on the world. All superheroes wear boring regular clothes on top of their superhero costumes. I want to feel like that again. I want to think of myself as a super intelligent, beautiful Goddess with divine wisdom and strong moral sense. I want enhanced vision, hearing, speed and strength. Most of all, I want super-human agility so I can fight each day with no rest.
Like most moms, I am a superhero in many aspects of my life, saving the world on a daily basis. I try to help everyone I meet. Every single day I give with every ounce of my being to help others. I try to be a super mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, therapist, maid, chauffer, etc... I work full time and volunteer at my children’s schools. I drive back and forth to school, work, and practices. I try to cook and eat healthy meals. I try to keep the sink empty and the yard looking nice. Yet, I beat myself up when I cannot seem to keep the house sparkling or the laundry baskets from over flowing. It seems no matter how hard I try I can never seem to get those darn thank you cards out. I really struggle to squeeze in time to exercise. How does Wonder Woman stay so fit? Thank goodness I have an amazing super hero husband that encourages me. Although he says he is more of a Batman than Superman.
On the plus side, my intuition serves as my own “Lasso of Truth”. I have learned to trust my gut more, it is usually right. Meanwhile I am trying to do it all and serve the greater good with the patience and grace of a Goddess. I really do have more patience than I ever thought possible. I really try to treasure the little things. I try to appreciate precious moments like the sound of my children’s laughter. I make an effort to savor the first sip of warm coffee in the morning. I find delight in the morning dew sparkling in the sunlight. I was giddy like a school girl when Lynda Carter, the woman I idolized as Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince) followed me Twitter. We have to remember, we all have a little Wonder Woman inside. I am just missing the invisible plane.
