Superheros are different from you and me. They take a path that’s both distinct and sometimes even dangerous. Their inner drive is often sparked by what they see as a great injustice and unlike so many of us, rather than feeling helpless – they roll up their sleeves (or get into a symbolicly powerful uniform of one kind or another) and get to work righting wrongs!
The Epitome of a Horse Rescuer
Here, take a look at a post she made on Facebook recently:
I had quite a bit of time to think on my drive today, thoughts about life, thoughts about purpose, thoughts about how I got to be where I am today. I never would’ve imagined my life this way but I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. I went to college to become successful and as it turns out I never really did anything with my education.
Success is measured many different ways. Someone asked me what I did the other day and the first thing that came to mind is I save horses. That’s what I do. That’s who I am. I would’ve never imagined a life where I lived in dirty jeans and boots, talked to kill buyers on a daily basis as if they were friends, and having my workout consist of shoveling wheelbarrows of manure, but honestly I couldn’t ever think of a more rewarding life.
Life is short and if anything I want to feel like I made a difference. I hope I am and have the strength to continue to do what I do, save lives. It’s not glamorous but it’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and I’m proud to say I am a horse rescuer.
I recently heard a discussion on the radio about the personality portrayed by the Batman character. In fact a psychiatrist has written a whole book about it. The upshot, the difference between the superheros and you and me is that these ordinary folk twist adversity into the power they need to address replications of those feelings as their lives progress. Rather than turn from struggle they approach it face on believing doing so can make a difference.
