Ohhh, to be Wonder Woman! A warrior princess gifted with superhuman powers! And oh how cool would it be to have a Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a cool tiara (which could serve as a projectile when needed) and of course who wouldn’t want her very own invisible airplane??? Not to mention the PERFECT body and never having to suffer through a bad hair day! But alas, we mere mortal woman can only dream of such things. We’re happy if we can manage to get the kids to school on time, accomplish a quarter of the things on our to do list each day and fit into our favorite pair of jeans – well at least I’M happy that way, guess I can’t speak for all women. I just wish somedays I could do more. Be more, take in more, not screw up so many things. Why do I feel so inadequate most of the time? And if almost ALL the other women I know struggle with the same feelings…then WHO are we comparing ourselves to……Wonder Woman???
