Day 3 HAWMC: If You Had A Superpower

If you had a superpower – what would it be? How would you use it?

Most of my life I have wanted the ability to read people's minds. Out of all the superpowers people have come up with, the ability to read people's minds is the most powerful of them all.

There are so many situations where I wish I could read people's minds. Like when I'm trying to explain what Lupus is and how it affects me, knowing what is confusing the other person and working on fixing their misconceptions would make the process so much easier. Or when I'm at work, I'll be able to focus on the problem at hand instead of guessing and taking shots in the dark.

Of course there are things you wouldn't want to know when reading peoples' minds. You would get an uncensored view of everyone's opinion of you and every dirty thought that crosses their mind. You would be able to hear every single thing that crosses their mind. And just listening to some of the things I think, it makes me second guess my desire to listen to everyone's thoughts.

But the benefits outweigh the negatives by far. If I could read minds, I could be an expert in Human Relations. I'd be able to get a good job because I'd be able to know what the interviewer is thinking. I could gamble in Vegas, make millions, and then donate the money to find a cure for Lupus. The possibilities are endless.
