We like the idea of doing cool things.
We'd love to fly like Superman-
Shoot webs out of our hands like Spiderman-
Move objects with our minds like Luke Skywalker-
Be superstretchy like Mr. Fantastic-
Ride a broomstick and play quidditch like Harry Potter-
or any of the other countless things that superheros, fantasty heros, and and science fiction heroes get to do in the literary/film universe.
But I was thinking one night, that if we actually had those powers, after a time they'd become pretty ordinary to us.
And then I thought...what about the powers we do have? How much do we underestimate them?
We can hear
Create things with our hands
and most of all...we can think. We have minds that give us an individuality that no other animal can boast.
And yet, like superheroes, we all have our own unique *powers.* I'd love to be a better singer, but God gifted me with writing and costume design. And yet in a way I take even these for granted.
But they are superpowers. Not everyone has them, and animals don't have them at all.
I don't know about you, but I'd much rather be able to write and design costumes than fly. Much more interesting and useful, don't you think? ;)
