It's a super sunny day, where the words are flowing and the inspiration to do what I do for a living seems easy to find. So it's only fitting that today, since I'm in such a super great mood, we're asking (or rather, Susan Scott Shelley is asking):
You've been gifted with a superpower. Which would you choose, and why?
This is so hard, because on any given day, there are a lot of things I'd like to be able to do. Is it cheating to have your superpower be the power to have any superpower? It is, isn't it? So I can't do that then.
I suppose I could be selfish and make my super power all about me, getting more work done, being able to control time, be in two places at once. That would be fun. But who's benefiting there? Mainly me. And that doesn't seem so super.
Okay. A true superpower should be able to help people. I've been on a Daredevil kick lately, but that doesn't mean I want to be blind and have amazing powers of hearing and echo-location. I also can't imagine being like Superman, because, well, that's a lot of pressure having to save the world all the time. Although I did just get a new pair of glasses and I think they're pretty cool.
Argh. This is hard! Okay. I'm going to be totally wishy-washy here. I love people being nice to each other, and I love the environment. So maybe my superpower could be the ability to cast love spells, or at least tolerance spells over people so that we could stop fighting each other and put more effort into the things that really matter. Imagine if we didn't need a defence budget, or a war budget, and we could put all that money into research and development for cleaner, greener ways of living?
Is that a superpower or a pipe dream? I'm not sure. But that's it. That's what I want to be. You can call me "LadyLove". Oh, and why not use the handy comment section to weigh in on what your superpower would be, and why!
Now, I'm sure some of my RWW pals are going to have far better ideas than me. So let's go check it out, starting with the ever-wonderful Brenda Margriet.
