This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 4
This blog is to be all about superpowers. Now superpowers as defined by this challenge are things I am good at, enjoy or love to do, and what others see I am good at. What I find interesting about this challenge is defining what they are and how these particular superpowers have made my current freedom lifestyle possible.
Being a mature person with a lot of life experience, i.e. old and done a lot of stuff, I have developed many skills that has allowed me to take part in many and varied activities both online and off. Additionally these skills have been instrumental in developing the lifestyle I have today. However, while important I don't feel they are my superpowers as defined by this challenge.
I have written about this before when I did a post on my Lifestyle Review and after some reflection, and asking people, these are my superpowers that have not only made my freedom possible, they will be the things that move it forward. So here I go, the superpowers:
Change and Adaptability
As the old saying goes "The Only Constant In Life Is Change." Which I find really interesting because from my experience most people hate it and will do anything to avoid it. It was only when I learnt to embrace change that life opened up a whole new set of possibilities that I never really thought were possible.
For me change is an every day occurrence, either new country, new house, new pets, new technology, new people, new experiences and the list goes on. e.g. In the last day I have traveled hundreds of kilometres to a new location, house, people and pets. It is my ability to adapt to that change, and then by embracing it that I identify and utilise the opportunities it offers.
Additionally I have found life is always moving me on and presenting me with situations and opportunities to be free of long held beliefs and society dogma which remains essential for me to expand my freedom lifestyle.
Intuition, Gut Feeling, Guidance
Now this superpower I feel is probably one of my most important. I would love to say I have really honed, developed, and worked on it, however in truth it is something we are all born with, and our only task is to learn to value and listen to it.
I am told I read people and situations very quickly, I understand what the underlying motivations and intentions are, I tend to choose situations and events that are perfect for whatever it is I am doing at the time. When in reality I just follow a feeling. It may manifest in many ways but it is what I have come to accept as Intuition, guidance or just plain old gut feeling.
Over the years it is this single superpower that keeps my freedom lifestyle simple and on track. In my experience if I ignore this superpower life has a way of reminding me it was probably a less than wise decision.
Other Superpower Skills
Like I said I have done lots of stuff and in the process developed a lot of many and varied skills. Currently the skills I like to use are writing, photography, videography and marketing. These are skills that I have been refining and developing over the years, and the ones that others seem to value the most. They are also the ones that my gut feel indicates will move me forward into collaborative projects that are currently missing from my lifestyle.
