Wonder Woman to the Rescue!

I have what I like to call ‘Wonder Woman’ syndrome – I have to be careful not to jump into things to quickly without thinking them through because I want to save or would like to think I can save the world – Fully KNOWING I can’t!!! lol Luckily I realized this a few years back and have learned it’s better to think things through lest I become overwhelmed, though I STILL find myself doing this now and then…

Like a freight train on a collision course… in my mind’s eye, I see Wonder Woman there, just in the nick of time as the train is about to go off the deep end. Using her mighty powers, she slows the train before it’s too late… before things get toooo out of control.

This past weekend was one of those overwhelming times. As my daughter & her little family are getting ready to move out of state, I found myself volunteering to have my granddaughter spend the night and then spend all… (and I do mean ALL) day with me on Sunday. This, after I’d just finished a most excruciating yet exhilarating week in training to become a ‘Peer Counselor’. Excruciating, because of the amount of information that was stuffed into my brain, and exhilarating because it was a training that I was really excited about and enjoyed beyond anything I’d experienced in a long time.

Taking a deep breath, ‘Wonder Woman’ stops the train, before it derails. She says to herself, ‘We need to slow this thing down’, take a breath and regroup, after all Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Recognizing a need to slow down is a fairly new skill for this Wonder Woman – as the train comes to a slow chug, I pat myself on the back for having noticed where the train was headed.

There’s still much I want to conquer, putting my training of that from last week, and an earlier training I’d received called ‘WRAP’ (Wellness Recovery Action Plan), to help me notice such things to good use, is a priority and something I’m feeling a need and a desire to concentrate on.

For those of you who know me, this might mean I don’t get back to you as quickly as I once would have as I take a little extra time to focus.

‘Don’t lose sight of that destination’ she says, ‘you’re getting there’.
