I feel like I’m being pulled in a few directions right now. There are those times where all beams cross at the same time. One thing I do have to start doing is saying no when work calls to do extra stuff. When urgent files are needed, it seems I am the one that gets called. Probably because I always say yes. D’uh. The next few days I am going to say no when they call. I have enough on my plate already.
When I get really busy, there are certain things that are non-negotiable. My guitar practicing suffers when I am busy. One of those non-negotiables is exercise. I need that daily to help keep my sanity and as part of self-care. It’s not always heavy duty, either. Just walking some days is fine. My phone tracks my activity. It does the steps on its own, but I have to input the biking – other than it recording it as flight climbed 😀 . I looked at the month view and noticed quite a consistent trend in my exercise:
That’s biking. Pretty much the same length (1 hour) most days and then the longer rides on weekends. Then I opened up the steps as well and you can see that where the dips in biking are, the rise in steps appears.
I laugh at the 0.2 miles today. I didn’t carry my phone around and it just sat by my computer all day LOL. It’s nice to see the consistency here. Maybe I can stay halfway sane after all!
On to super powers. John and I were laying in bed one night, and you know how those conversations can be really interesting. John asked me what super power I would like to have. Then, of course, we had to discuss the merits and disadvantages of all of them!
Invisibility: It’s not very useful per se, and it seems that you would be more likely to use this power for bad things, like stealing.
Immortality: Is this actually a super power or just a state of being? I wouldn’t like it because you would have to watch everyone you love get old and die forever. Boo.
Flying: Good for getting places, but that’s about it. Can you take someone with you? What about luggage? And I wouldn’t want to fly in bad weather LOL!
Telekinesis: This is the power John wants. You can do a lot of things if you can move stuff with your mind. You can help a lot of people, move debris at accident sites, stop things from happening. I do think you would need to keep the fact that you had this power under wraps because everyone would be asking you to help them move.
Mind reading: No way. Then you would know exactly how much everybody lies to you. And it’s really only good to gain the upper hand in all situations.
I decided I would make my own super power. I’m going to call it flower power.
I said last week that the garden was my happy place, so I would use flower power to negate the anger in the world. Sprinkle pollen or something. That would create world peace. Since many plants are also the forerunners of modern medicine, flower power can be used for healing as well! It’s the perfect super power for me.
What’s your super power?
