What would your superpower be?

What would your superpower be?

I started asking this question to people a couple of years ago. It tells you a lot about a person. It is kind of neat. "If you could have any superpower which one would you want to have?" My husband's instant and consistent answer is the power to fly. My son sticks with telekinesis. Sometimes when I ask people the question over again after a period of time, their answers change. Mine has always been mind control. I don't know if that should reveal the fact that I believe I am strong enough of heart to shoulder that superpower responsibly...or if it simply means I am a control freak.

It definitely sounds a little insane, but I have come to believe that everyone should strive to develop their own superpower, whatever it may be. Maybe it is possible, who can really say. I do know that I get a lot further in my life believing that anything is possible, so why do I limit myself. Why is it okay for me to believe that it is possible for me run a marathon, but not for me to fly? If no one has ever proven that it is impossible, then it must be possible...so why not go for it? My husband already sits still in meditation every day. Why not focus on levitating off of the ground. If the sky is the limit, as we say, then why are we holding ourselves back?


What I am getting at is the idea that it is good for us to open up our minds to every possibility imaginable. I think that by nature, humans have an instinct to make our thinking smaller and smaller as we travel through our lives. I plan to take a stand and fight that process. I want for my mind to remain young and full of new and interesting ideas. It's that mental ingredient that all of the successful inventors have, all of the great philosophers and leaders too. I want to be one of those people, they change the world for the better, and move us further along the road that we are meant to travel as a planet. I don't think that it is unrealistic to work on developing a superpower, or to plan on accomplishing anything for that matter, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…
