How To Not Be A Superhero

I call myself superwoman. (Check out my Twitter and Instagram profile and see for yourself) I don’t feel cold very easily, I can do the work of a few good men without crying and I usually make goals that require superhuman strength to accomplish. I like to think of myself as superwoman.

But then there are days when I get knocked off my high horse. Like last week when I got a cold and I had to cancel a meeting because I couldn’t get out of bed. And my energy level was so low I did only what was absolutely necessary.

I don’t like feeling like that. Superwoman shouldn’t have a runny nose. Superwoman shouldn’t have tissues stuffed in her pocket. Superwoman shouldn’t have to hide her cape under layers and layers of clothes in her apartment because she’s freezing cold.

But then I realized it’s okay. I don’t have to be a superhero everyday. Even superwoman deserves a day off.

It was 22 degrees outside this morning when I went to the gym. On mornings like this, even superwoman has to bundle up.

Superheroes aren’t superheros all the time. Clarke Kent wasn’t superman all the time. Sometimes, an unfortunate encounter with some kryptonite would railroad his plans. Iron man had several suits for the days when one wasn’t enough. Batman only worked at night so he probably slept all day.

Superwoman can take a sick day off. And then she can take it easy for several days after that to get her strength back.
