Flying


I really want to be able to fly. I think it’s only fair. Lots of people in the movies and such can do it, and I think I’m ready to take that step.

I’m not sure if I’m ready to be a superhero. I wonder if there is some type of apprentice program. Or maybe a free internship I could try out?

Please give me the powers, but maybe not the responsibility? That way I can fly around and get some of that youthful energy out. I say youthful because don’t most superheroes live forever?

Eventually, I would do good for the world…

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about making changes and planning to make changes. I’ve found there are a few areas of my life where I want to make healthier changes, but I can’t quite.

For instance, I want to learn to cook. I promised I would in the new year. While I’ve made definite progress, I’ve only made a few things and helped my husband with a few meals. I don’t feel like I’m doing enough.

There’s a strange difference between wanting to do something and then not actually doing it.

I liken it to wanting to fly, but not being ready for the whole superhero responsibility. It’s not that I don’t want to help the world. I’m just not sure I’m ready to.

Anyway, that’s my parallel. Does not wanting to be a superhero make me a bad person? Do you think you’d be up for the challenge? I honestly think about these things since we write and read about characters that are destined to do great things.

Most of the time, I think this character is a better woman than I.

What do you think?
