We have been talking about becoming a superhero to our kids and families. What does that mean exactly? Joseph Campbell describes the "hero's journey" as one in which the hero goes on an adventure, battles an enemy, and goes through a transformation in the process. So I want to be clear that I am not saying that we have to be the traditional "super mom" who does everything easily and looks perfect to all her friends. In fact, I mean the opposite! I mean that we are leaving our comfort zones to face unknown enemies, doubts, disbeliefs, and challenges and to see them as battles that bring transformation in our lives and make us stronger! For me, I continue to work on clarifying WHO I am, what I am good at, and how I can meet the needs of families around me.
In that spirit, my image today is a compilation created on worditout.comof words that my friends and family have used to describe me.
