I am no Superwoman!!!
Yes, I kept yelling this. I am no Superwoman!!! I am just a "normal" human being.
It all started this morning. I woke up very inspired to go on a 10K.
I have not been too pleased with my recent activities and was determined to MOVE more.
I set out at about 5:55am, geared up to wade off the bitter cold and a Headlamp fixed on my head.
My intension was to make the 10K in time to get set for Church at about 8:30am. I was barely into the 3K region when the first call came in. My twin girls were at each other's throat, as usual, quarrelling over what to wear and other stuff. Patiently, I tried to douse the "fire" and continued my journey. Less than 1K after, another call from the second twin, half-patiently, I sorted things out. A little over 1K after, another call; this time my patience had expired. Here, I was trying to make the journey in the horrible cold, determined to get the fat out at all cost. They were in the warm bedroom, disturbing my not-so-welcoming experience. My, did I lose it? I really did. I gave them real hard, "who do you think I am, a Superwoman who can do all things at the same time? I am not. I am just a human being like you, trying to stay healthy. You need to let me be, You will need me more in future and appreciate a healthy Grandmother for your children, you don't want to have a burden as a mother, when you should be enjoying your life, I am trying my best
.." I went on and on and on. I did not stop until all my frustration was expelled then I calmed down.
Poor girls, it really is not their fault is it? It is not their fault that I let go of myself early I life. Not their fault that I am struggling, at this age, to live a healthy life. Yes, I messed up big time earlier in my life, but I sure am trying my best right now and I expect everyone to appreciate it and support me. It is so frustrating that so much is expected of me, at the same time.
Well, it was a good opportunity to let off bottled steam and I am glad, I did. After all the ranting, I soothed them with some loving words and went on with my walk, this time in peace because they would have dared to call, only if the roof was on fire. I made my 10K in 104minutes and made it to Church in time too.
I am not a Superwoman but a woman who is making Super efforts at good choices and I expect everyone around me to appreciate that.
Have a most blessed week Friends!
