02 Aug What is your superpower?
It was a question that a friend in Perth askedme once, What is your superpower?. I am not a super here, or wait, am I?, Yes, we are. I start to check all my friends, family and pople that i know and I saw in lots of them different powers.
How is possible a 3 years old boy can draw better than me or how a 5 years old girl can sing with such a beautiful voice. Every single person has an special power, skill or wherever you want to call it. Maybe some are really good in arts, others in sports, or science. you have to find what is your super power, you are really good in something, but the point is try to find it.
If we talk about superheros as we see in movies or cartoons, we will find lots of powers, but as HUMANS, what kind of power do you have?. Good listener, or amazing view, or maybe you are really good with your hands, or super fast.
I tried sports and I am really bad one, I cant sing, I am terrible. I am not good with any instrument, mechanics, science, maths, but I am good with communication. Yes that is my power, now I need to work out this power, because sometimes I dont understand my self.
