I think that never trying to be a Superhero.
Is as ill-advised as always trying to be a Superhero.
Never being a Superhero.
Means never pushing to the edges of your life.
(And the best stuff is always at the edge).
But always trying to be a Superhero.
One of a raft of mistakes I made in 2019.
Was trying too hard and too often to be a Superhero.
(Everybody needs time out.
Even Bob Parr*).
So as we move into 2020 I have decided to relax more.
I’ll still try to be a Superhero from time to time, of course.
But I will also remove my imaginary lycra completely from time to time.
And just be ‘off’.
When I am ‘off’.
I can repair.
So that when I am needed to do important, time critical things.
I am ready.
Better prepared to come up with magic rather than just solutions.
Because I know that if I am bouncing from thing to thing to thing.
I am not looking for magic.
I am just looking to ‘get things done’.
So that’s it for me for 2020.
So that when I am called upon to be a Superhero.
Or when I decide that Superherodom is for me.
I am more ‘Mr. Incredible’.
Than ‘Mr. Incapable’.
