On this day, I wished I had super powers...
As a child I had wished to grow up to be a super hero. Like She-ra, or Superman!
When I grew up and realized that would not happen, I was disappointed.
However, in adult hood, my nicknames from loved ones, acquaintances and coworkers have been: Angel, and Superwoman.
One former coworker and I had tea the other day as we discussed life changes and where we saw our futures and she said to me, "Did anyone ever tell you you're like Superwoman? Because I watched you every day when we worked together and you are like that.. Superwoman!"
I realized that some of those childish, innate desires of saving the world and making a difference had never really left me. I would not realize until later in the week of just how much I impact those around me.. until that Friday...
But on this day, I had thought about super powers and what I would have, if I could. I have wanted to be able to be:
-be capable of invisibility
-influence things of nature and animals.
I guess it would be handy in every day life to have those because of the things I could take care of in my own life. Then I think about what I could do for others. Lives that could be saved. I guess I will never change. I am still that kid who wanted to grow up to be Superman!
