Being Free of Superwoman
Wednesday, March 05, 2014
The biggest blessing of my cancer experience is the realization that there are no rewards in trying to be superwoman who can do everythings and take care of everyone. I am more of a realist now.
It is such a relief to allow myself time to take a needed nap. I have friends who reach out and help. I have a former student who took care of my property in all the snowstorms. I have cut some appointments and responded with no as an answer when asked to do something I'd rather not do.
I am taking time to get better, to rest, to exercise and to cook properly. The cat loves our playtimes.
I feel really free!
