I am She-Ra

It's no good.
I've looked in the mirror from several angles and can safely say that you would struggle to find a less likely-looking superhero. Even before the telephone box transformation!
Just a sad combination of chronic overachiever and widow who desperately wants everything to be as close as possible to the way it was before. Even though it never will be.

But I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time to reply to my last post and talk me down off the ceiling. I really do appreciate you sharing your own stories, which are every bit as painful as my own. Why this helps so much I don't know, but it does.

And thank you for giving me permission to let things go. Sometimes this idiot brain struggles to see the obvious. I just need to stop over-thinking things and simply do what is good for me. Why is that so difficult?

Anyway. Enough of this introspection. There are things to be done, runaway trains to stop, people to be rescued...


  1. You are She-Ra! As Supa already pointed out in the last post, clipping those sheep nails is super hero stuff in my books! Remember that super heros have to look after themselves first :)

  2. Wasn't it Plato who said, "The un-over-thought life is not worth living?" I'm pretty sure.

    Don't change a thing, dear.
