What are your superpowers? Besides the usual superpowers (you know, flying, shrinking, leaping tall buildings), I think we women have some real-life superpowers. In fact, we have the shirt to prove it.
And according to actual science, we have special skills, in addition to bearing babies. Studies have shown that we are better than men at:
Discerning a wide range of colors.
Reaching out to others when we experience stress. Men are more likely to isolate.
Detecting dangerous situations. Yes, we are the moms. But the science suggests our “protectiveness actually extends all the way back to before [our] children were even born.”
Multi-tasking (doh!), and
Our immune systems are stronger than men’s.
Your own superpowers are part of what makes you special and rare. They’re what you bring to the party and what others have appreciated about you for so long. They may include:
- Creativity, in the sciences or arts, or in the kitchen, it’s all good.
- Intuition. Maybe you know things before others do, or are a first-rate judge of character.
- Organization. I know some of you have this power because I have read your blogs!
- Communication. Verbal and non-verbal, you know how to get to the heart of a matter, and remain kind.
- Courage. One of my favorites. When I see a fearless woman, my heart swells with pride.
The superpower I’m aspiring to in my 60’s is calmness. Just being calm. It comes in handy in so many situations, and it has gotten a lot easier with age. I have a long history of anxiety disorders, including obsessive cleaning. I’m using my calmness superpower to make life simpler while clearing my mind of the clutter that makes it complicated. Breathe in, breathe out.
Stay super-powerful and fabulous, and spread the love, xo
