Feeling Like You Are Being Challenged By The Universe?

I read “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown for one of my book clubs recently. In it, Brene says: “People may call what happens at midlife ‘a crisis,’ but it’s not. It’s an unraveling — time when you feel a desperate pull to live the life you want to live, not the one you’re ‘supposed’ to live.”

Midlife is just one type of unraveling.

Others can be: moving, empty nest, working at a soul sucking job, retiring. And the latest COVID-19.

What if this unravelling was really a time for an awakening?

A time to rediscover and embrace your superpowers.

I love sci-fi. I own all the Star Trek movies (all versions). Star Wars movies. Matrix. Most Marvel movies. I love the concept of superpowers. Talents that are ours.

We all have superpowers. We used them all the time when we were young. Chances are, you forgot most of them. I know I did. Life got busy. You did what you needed to in the moment to get by, survive.

I invite you to stop hitting the snooze button and begin to wakeup to the you that you may have left behind.

Vibrant Living Tip

Think back to your childhood. Name 3 things that you loved doing. That you were really good at. Are you still doing them? If not, make a commitment to use at least one of these superpowers this week. Make it fun! Like when you were younger.

List 3 superpowers that you have discovered since becoming an adult. Celebrate by using at least one of these this week.

What about the future? Use your creativity and imagination and list 3 superpowers you wish you had. That would support you as you move forward with your vision. Make a commitment to yourself that you will investigate how to make 1 of these part of your life. And start doing it.

Vibrant Living Take Away

Superpowers are not reserved for sci-fi super heroes. They are everyday talents that you enjoy and make you you. Embrace them. Celebrate them. Use them. Notice superpowers in others and compliment them. Say something like – “I love that you are so good at (name it). It’s one of your superpowers!”

Until next time...

Dream Bravely.
Act Boldly.
Live Vibrantly!
