We all have superpowers...but they aren't always what you think they are.
See, our superpowers are sneaky. They wear cloaks of invisibility and skulk in the shadows and are the things we don't notice in ourselves.
They are our natural state of being. Our superpowers feel like idling in neutral for us. That moment when we're not trying to BE anything but we just ARE.
Sometimes we will rip off that cloak and we'll see them for ourselves, standing in broad daylight shining like the sun. It's so obvious that they've been there our whole lives.
But for the most part they can stand right in front of us and we see right through them.
And I don't believe it's because we're not grateful that we have amazing abilities. I believe it's because it's like describing the flavor of water. It's so simple we don't even recognize it as a superpower, it's just something we do. It's just a part of us.
Nothing that deserves recognition.
in the ease and grace of who we are every day - our Clark-Kent-ness IS what makes us special superheroes.
So I dare you in the quiet moments of reflection as we close our one year and make way for the next, that you take time to destroy the lessening of the most ordinary parts of yourself, the parts you take no special notice of, and see you as you really are...Superman in disguise
