If you could have any superpower in the world what would it be? Would you like to have super strength like Superman, super speed like The Flash, the ability to fly like Wonder Woman or would you want to be like Storm with the ability to manipulate the weather? If you ask me today I might say Storm because I need for Spring to come and stay and to quit playing with my emotions.
We all have a superpower. Discovering what that superpower is can be tricky. Your superpower is what sets you apart from everyone else. You might not call it a superpower but to the rest of us it’s most definitely your superpower.
This has become a popular interview question as well as a college/scholarship essay question. In my house we have been in the college/scholarship process for several months now. My son has had to dig deep at age 17 to figure out his current superpower. Because he is only 17 I know that his superpower will probably change. He has a the ability to quickly analyze a situation and make a decision. There is not a lot of self doubt with him.
But it got me to thinking about my superpower. What sets me apart? What makes me standout from those around me?
One of my favorite superpowers is the ability to find the positive in any situation. My glass is always half full. Don’t get me wrong I live in a realistic world but I choose to find the good. It’s a very intentional decision. I don’t see the purpose of being negative, it just adds frown lines and shorten your days (as the old folks use to say). And who wants to be around negative people? Think about the people you meet on a daily basis, would you want to be around them again if all they brought to the table was negativity? Would you invite them to dinner? Would you want to spend any more of your precious time with them? I like to think that I attract what I’m putting out. So I attract genuinely positive people. If you hang around with me long enough my positivity will rub off on you.
I also believe that women by nature have the superpower of intuition. We can just feel when something is not right. I never realized how powerful my intuition was until I became a mother. And as I get older it seems to be getting stronger. Now I make it a practice to not ignore it and when another women shares her intuition with me I listen to her too. We are all stronger together.
Now, if I had to pick one super hero superpower, superpower… it would be the ability to kick some butt like the Dora Milaje in the Black Panther movie. You wouldn’t want to try me in a dark alley. LOL!!
What’s your superpower? What super hero superpower do you wish you possessed?
Beewisdom- Being ME is my superpower
