If you see me wearing these...
It's not because I think I'm Wonder Woman. It's most likely that I've had a hard day and need a reminder that I'm stronger than I'm feeling at the time. Maybe it's because I'm about to lead a Spin class and I want to remind myself to teach to the woman who needs to be reminded that she is stronger than she is feeling right now. Maybe I just like dressing up like a super hero.
If you see me wearing this...
It could be because I'm feeling so grateful that I just need the world to know. But most likely it's because I need a reminder to not allow fear to creep up on me today. I need a minute-by-minute reminder to be grateful for what I have and let go of what I'm chasing.
And if you see this...
It's because sometimes I forget to breathe. Seems so simple. Seems like we do it without thought or action on our part. But I'm living proof that if God had not made us to breathe without our active participation many of us would fail to make it a priority. We would suffocate.
It's amazing what one deep breath can do. Center. Calm. Allow some margin in my body and soul for God. Deepens my being...reminds me to be. Be where I am. Not where I think I need to be, or where I want to be or even where my mind may be at that moment. But to be present where I am, with the person I'm with, with God in that moment.
And if you see this from time to time...
Well, that's just because life it too short to take yourself so seriously all the time.
It's Monday. Breathe. Be grateful. Get the hair cut, or color, or both. And go put on your Wonder Woman pants and show Monday what a badass you are.
