Growing up, many girls felt the power of Wonder Woman. For a long time they could not find anyone else, we all loved Linda Carter. I had so much fun dressing up like her a few times as a performance artist. There was also the time I thought I should play Wonder Woman, did my research, but ultimately it wasn’t my fate.
I was thrilled with Gal Gadot, and took my kids to see it in the theatre. I never really thought of the meaning of “wonder” until recently. A client of mine bought me the most amazing book as a gift called “I wonder.” Another client was telling me that I live in wonder, I’m always present, and I see miracles unfold at every turn of life.
I love how the avatar above lets me dress crazy and be silly. It took me a long time to find one I can connect with. I have a prominent, Mediterranean nose that I love. Throughout the years I have been given many amazing compliments, followed by how I should get a nose job. I always liked being unique, and celebrating my exotic features.
That is my message in the work that I love. As a Yoga/Pilates teacher and a Labor/Birth Doula, I remind everyone to celebrate themselves. There is no one else like you, no one will ever do the magic that you do, and you have to take care of yourself because no one else will do it for you.
Find ways to express yourself, and love the skin you’re in. We only get this one body in this lifetime, so we might as well live fully, feel good, and enjoy life!
