Yes, yes I am. How can you tell? Is it the smartphone I read while taking notes and eating lunch? It is the briefcase, the purse, the packed lunch and the laptop bag? Or could it be the sparkle in my eye that says “I dare you”?
Every woman in today’s world is a Super Woman, whether you are Ivanka Trump, Condoleezza Rice, or Susie Homemaker. To survive in the ADD driven society around us, we all must be super women. There is no choice.
I save the world, or my little place in it, every day. Sometimes staying up until midnight finishing a school project that is due tomorrow--and just happened to get forgotten about right after it was assigned two weeks prior.
Other times changing out of my comfy sweats to prove to the local store clerk at GameStop that my seventeen-year-old son, is, in fact, seventeen, so he can purchase the “M” rated game with his Christmas money.
I also display my extraordinary powers when I come to the one o’clock client meeting with the charts and data they are expecting, despite the fact they never, in fact, verbalized the need.
To those who know me well, it is just who I am. It is expected. Those who encounter me for the first time it might think I do have superpowers granted from a far off world beyond the sun. Either way, the label Super Woman is succinct and gets the point across, although I am of the opinion I am no different than any other woman, I just know how to work it a little bit more.
To start the ball rolling I will tell you a little about me, and I mean a little – I am a woman--and yes I have double checked, no demon, male hating entity here. Divorced with three children, a dog, and three cats. I love every single one to death! I have a best friend by the name of Brenda, for whom you will hear me reference often. I live in northern Texas, I grew up on the East Coast, lived in Las Vega for a spell (best damn time I have ever had…) and then the West Coast.
I work for a Document Solutions Company on a national team of seven people, each of whom I consider family. I am also a romance novelist–no really check it out on Amazon! I have lots of unrealistic goals, worries, financial obligations. Kids who think money grows on trees, and credit is free money, All of the stress to go along with being a single lady, mother, sister – yes I have a younger sister—daughter, friend, co-worker, blogger, author and expert. Can I do it all?
Tell me I can’t – I dare ya!
I do it all every day – yes every day, and so do you! That is my point. Every person reading this is amazing, astounding and a hero to someone. Remember that, and I will try and remind you and me of it now and again.
Looking for a break, go see Wonder Woman June 2nd!
