"My idea of superwoman is someone who scrubs her own floors." -Bette Midler
I actually own this shirt.
I bought it for the boyfriend when he dressed up as Clark Kent for Halloween this year, then quickly inherited it back to use as a pajama shirt. I love it, its one of my favorites.
But I need to remember, wearing the shirt or not, I am not superwoman. No matter how hard I try to be.
Im not superfriend.
Im not supersister.
Im not supergirlfriend.
Im not superdaughter.
Im not super employee.
And I need to be ok with it. Which is hard. I like to try and make everyone happy. Sometimes I go above and beyond trying to please everyone, or fit everything into a schedule, only to find my spirit completely worn down. And its not like I don’t enjoy the attempt at being superwoman.
I love seeing my friends.
I love bonding with my sisters.
I love being with my boyfriend (when I get to).
I love spending time with my parents.
I love who I work for.
But in the end, I need to remember that I love me too. And sometimes taking a vacation from these things is much needed.
Speaking of vacations, the boyfriend and I are in desperate need of one. Even a mini spontaneous one. Things have been crazy in our small little world, and I feel like we've been run ragged and we're going to crash (into each other, thats my fear). If only money grew on trees.
