I feel like a super woman! How lucky we are those of us who can make choices and decide how we are going to show up for ourselves and each other.


Como soy un poquito estoica, me prepare para pasarla mal y tener todos los síntomas imaginables de la segunda dosis de la vacuna. Ni me imaginé que no solo no tuve síntomas negativos sino que me sentí super feliz, fuerte, con una estámina para tirar al techo. Corrí 5 kilómetros a todo dar, batiendo record de velocidad y placer a solo dos horas de haber recibido la Pfizer. Me siento como la mujer maravilla. Mi maratón personal terminó con una lluvia hermosa y un atardecer imperdible, aparte de unas cuantas lágrimas que acompañaron a mis trotes.

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto!
