Resolute Woman? Or, superwoman?

Fayteen recently had surgery.

“The doctor told me that I’ll be driving in a week,” she told me before the surgery. “I’ll be back to normal in a week or two.”

I know for certain that Fayteen is a Resolute Woman and that her determination and optimism are strengths. Sometimes, however, even Resolute Women try to be superwomen.

I have had surgery several times, and, every time, it took me more than a week or two to get back to normal. There are times when it’s okay to slow down for a while, to forget about things to do and goals to accomplish, to concentrate on getting well.

Sometimes we need to ask ourselves if we’re trying to be superwomen.

“Yes,” Fayteen says, “I did slide back into my superwoman role. I tried to get out of bed too soon and do too much. But, I’m back to reality. I’m resting.”
