When I was younger, on Saturdays, we used to watch cartoons. I liked to sit and eat cereal and watch all my favorites. Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes, Smurfs, and last but not least, was Superheroes. My dad would come sit and watch with me. He liked comic books and the Superheroes were something we could watch together. What I couldn't wait for was for was Wonder Woman and Supergirl....boy, I had to wait. Most of the time they were just side kicks or played off secondary to their male counter parts, but I still couldn't wait to see how they would always save the boys!
Wonder Woman the "real" TV show was on syndication and if I was lucky enough I got to stay up late and sneak an episode. Lynda Carter was so strong and beautiful. Lifting cars and capturing the bad guys, never a hair or eyelash out of place. With the onset of the movie, my love for Wonder Woman has resurfaced.
Lately I've been practicing my yoga like Wonder Woman. Half naked. (At home of course!!) SWEATY, hair everywhere and make up dripping down my face. (only an Amazon Goddess doesn't sweat!)
What I realized is that it is time to stop my negative self talk and embrace the body I have right now. After a life time of bad eating habits, eating disorders on every spectrum: from starvation to binging/purging, I'm tired. It's time to enjoy the strength, the curves, the stretch marks and everything in-between. To acknowledge the WONDER of my WOMANhood and just be.
It is freeing to finally uncover and unleash my WONDER WOMAN.
Stand in your mirror naked, and take the WW Stance.
Feel the power.
Feel the GODDESS shining through.
You will LOVE IT!
