When I was about 5 years old, the Wonder Woman tv show starring Lynda Carter debuted. I was young, but remember LOVING her. There was something about the mix of her courage, her strength, yes, her outfit… that just fascinated me. I wanted to be so much like her that I remember scoffing at the shoe salesman when he tried to talk me into brown boots because they didn’t carry red ones. Yes, at a very young age I seemed to know what kind of woman I wanted to be… though by the time I became an adult things had changed – I cared too much about what others thought, and had taken the safe road instead of following my dream. Slowly over the years I had stopped being authentic to myself.
