Super Hero

Well, i think this picture may say it all...and here is a question...why can't we, as adults, go around wearing our favorite cape and superhero outfit? I mean, sure, people would stare, but who cares? So what? My mom pointed out to me last night that as Warriors of the Light, we are all a bit like Clark Kent, living a "normal" life that most can see and understand, but they really can't comprehend our superhero powers and don't know that we are often wearing our cape ready to fly at any moment. Sound crazy? www.worldsuperheroregistry.com Check out this sight....it is for actual superheroes.

Ok, so maybe i can't fly or stop a bullet, or shoot a web out of my wrist, but i can do other things...like, write a powerful sentence that could save someones life or day, or smile on the street and maybe help someone decide that life isn't that bad, or say hello to a stranger, or open the door for a mother and her 4 kids and not worry that she is on the cell phone and doesn't say thanks, or maybe I can just try and acknowledge each person during the day that I come in contact with...

I would like to wear a cape...it would be velvety and dark green and i would have a mask somewhere between a Lucador, and Batman, and tall boots, the kind that Mad Max wears...and I wouldn't talk like Batman, I would talk like the guy from the Matrix and say things like, Hello Mr Anderson..and I would have bulging muscles and shiny white teeth and my mode of transport would be a an old classic motorcylcle, which in secret, was a rocketship....and I would only sleep 2 hours a night.....

but i digress.

I think this picture reminds all of us that superheroes are what we look up to and want to be at some point in our life..the next time someone asks me what I want to be when I grow up, I will say....

I want to be a superhero.


Love and Understanding.

You ARE a super hero. You've got the internal hero-ness which is the hard part, the external strappings are easy breezy.. :)

Yes, that picture definitely says it ALL. I love it! I can see it on a greeting card offering encouragement to the Super Hero in all of us...sort of like this post.
