One day a week I indulge my belief that I have superpowers and wear a Superhero shirt. This could be misconstrued as ego but let me share my “why”.
Growing up I had it in my head that one day I would find my knight in shining armor. It’s a romantic thought but not very empowering. Why would I need someone to “rescue” me? I threw that childhood story out and created a new one. The new main character was no longer a hero but a heroine. She rode her own horse and didn’t need to be rescued from anything because she had the courage and strength to do things for herself.
A few years back I began to wear to superhero shirts to work on Fridays as part of a campaign. No longer with the company, I continue to embrace my inner superhero. Quirky? Maybe. But Fridays give me an opportunity to remember who I am and hopefully inspire others to embrace their own superpowers.
