I’ve been an overachiever during some phases of life. I’ve had people say I’m superwoman, but I never really felt like it. I worked myself to exhaustion and people gave me props. I always just felt like I was doing what I should do. It was nothing that seemed so far beyond a human’s capabilities.
Oh, but today…
Today, while playing with my son, I decided to lean onto his chest to listen to his heartbeat. I’m not sure why I never thought to do this sooner, but it finally crossed my mind. You know what? It’s not until that very moment when I heard his heart beating that I felt like a superwoman. This wonderfully beautiful and rhythmic heartbeat that gives my son life was created inside my body. It makes me feel like my body is truly superhuman. Then, I catch him smile at me. I’m his superwoman. I’ve never felt so strong.
It was definitely an amazing moment.
