Superpowers

Superpowers

I have superpowers. You have superpowers. We all have superpowers. *cue Goodburger theme* You forgot about the most important of them all. You forgot that you can change the world. It’s simple, really. Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you see negativity and ...

Have you ever forgotten that you were wearing sunglasses? You’re standing there minding your own business, and all of a sudden someone comments, “Hey, why are you still wearing those sunglasses?” The sun disappeared long ago, the need for your sunglasses vanishing, but you ...
