Superwoman, you? a.k.a. That-Moment-You-Feel-Limitless-&-Nothing-Can-Get-In-Your-Way!

Superwoman, you? a.k.a. That-Moment-You-Feel-Limitless-&-Nothing-Can-Get-In-Your-Way!

OKAY, so tonight I wore these flashy red leggings, tried them on, looked at myself in the mirror & legit felt like SUPERWOMAN in them.

 Keyword: “Felt”.

But then, I took a second look at myself & I realized that:

I really am Superwoman.

Fine, maybe without the superpowers. 

But, when I look back on the past 7 months of my life, I realize that I felt, overcame, accomplished, fought, faced, conquered & beat things I never thought possible.

When times got tough, I fought to remind myself that no amount of guilt or shame could change the past & no amount of anxiety or stress could change the future.

I fought day in & day out to live in the present & to teach my mind that the person I am is not defined by:

numbers.

measurements.

calories.

weight.

the actions of yesterday.

the stressors of tomorrow. 

I fought to erase the thoughts that were standing in my way & replaced them with coping mechanisms to keep moving FOREVER forward

And I moved forward. 

Every single day. 

Some days, I took HUGE steps.

Other days, I took baby ones. 

BUT EVERY DAY, I TOOK A STEP. 

Every day, I spread my wings.

I flew. 

And with every step, I flew a little bit farther away from the hell that consumed my life for far too long

(Yes, two years is a heck of a long time when something so powerful controls your every single move & when you literally have ZERO control over your body, mind & the decisions you make).

I flew until I felt limitless.

Until I felt like nothing could stop me.

Nothing could stand in my way.

Nothing could bring me down.

Nothing could destroy me.

NOTHING COULD CONTROL ME.

UNTIL I NOT ONLY FELT BUT BECAME SUPERWOMAN.

So, yes, while I don’t have superpowers, per se.

To me, all I’ve overcome in the past 7 months fits my definition of “superpowers”.

&

For me, that’s just about enough.
