Have you ever wondered if you could be a superhero? Well, what is your superpower? Do you know what makes you special?
Yesterday me and my nephew watched the Incredibles. It is an animated movie about a family of superheroes who are forced to hide their superpowers. They have to be normal and not show who they really are and what they can do. The dad in the family gets a really boring job and it makes him sad because he can’t do what he really loves to do, which is helping people in need. The ending is really sweet and it made me feel hopeful like a good movie is supposed to do.
What is your superpower?
The movie got me into thinking about life again and how we all have something that makes us special but that we are always trying to fit in to be like everyone else. Why do we do that? We all want to fit in and feel connected to other people and sometimes it is not good for us. Being normal and being like everybody else is not a superpower. It is not going to make you happy. We are not supposed to live like that, this I am sure of.
What have you always been good at doing that makes you special? What makes you not fit in? What did you get teased about when you were young?
You know all those things that you felt you had to hide from the world, you are supposed to show them instead. Let them loose, they are supposed to make you shine!
When you find out what makes you special, go out and use that in the world! Be the real you, that you were before everybody told you to be quiet, stand up tall and follow their rules.
Make up your own rules! Live your life. Be you.
I would love to hear what your thoughts are about this topic. Have you found what your superpower is? This week Halloween is coming up and we get a chance to be somebody else for a night. Maybe you can use that opportunity to help you bring out your superpower. It is just a thought…
By the way, who is your favorite superhero? Mine is Batman. Feel free to leave a comment in the section below!
