J: but it’s all good … you’ll bounce back and maybe this is God’s way to telling ya to slow DOWN!
So it’s no big surprise that I’m obsessed with Wonder Woman… I think I’ve always liked her because she’s always been so super strong–physically, emotionally, mentally (yes, I know she’s not real… just let me have my moment!) I’ve been a fan of Wonder Woman since I first saw Lynda Carter rope in all the bad guys with her lasso as a 4 or 5 year old. As I got older and probably due to circumstances, I felt the need to take care of myself and be strong. I felt the need to always be in control of my own life–or as much as I can. So I became this “I got everything under control” person… and I played the part super well–with my whole extended family, in my ministry, and everywhere else…
So when I came unglued this week, I seriously felt like I was having an out-of-body experience. And for those who had to work with me this week probably never saw me coming apart… but I was a total mess. Thankfully, I have some of the most amazing friends that came to my rescue… and helped me laugh–literally LOL!!! And just as my blunt yet loving friend reminded me, I’m human afterall… and it’s okay to be vulnerable! In fact, I’m so blessed to have girlfriends that allow me to be human in front of them (or over the phone or text) and be glued back together with gentle reminder that God is in control even if I’m not! Thank you God!
One of my favorite lines from my friend over our phone convo: “At least we’re still not in our 20’s–naive and dumb.” haha… if you’re still in your 20’s and think that was insensitive, just wait ’til you hit near 40’s/40’s, and you’ll see what we meant by that!
