superpowers -- day 4: 10 day freedom plan blog challenge

This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 4

I don't like to talk about what's going well in my life. This superpowers activity is all about that, though. My friends and family had to remind me of a few superpowers I'm quite fond of.

tenacity and confidence
I found early and have many stories about things I'm not supposed to be able to do. The things I'm most proud of in my life are all from sticking to it and believing a project will be worth the energy and work. I failed miserably at the beginning of every one of those things. I'm always messing up and I'm always okay with that. I know failing is just the best teacher. I can learn how to do this... every time if I'm that interested. This superpower can be a weakness, however. I sometimes have to be forced to give up and move on with my life.

writing and speaking
I speak in stories. I think in stories. I write in stories. This helps me be understandable. I have a good intuition most times for what a particular audience is looking for and how to help them understand whatever topic they're learning from me. People tell me I explain things in a way that doesn't make them feel dumb. I find stories of my own learning and early failures help them realize they can get it.

humor and inspiration
I'm not sure these are a superpower. If they are, they are subtle. If I'm trying to be funny or inspirational, I feel like it always comes out wrong every time. When I'm getting into something, however, a natural sense of fun is always there. I don't get it, but I'm always hearing from others how they are inspired by something I'm doing or saying.
