If I ever had a chance to talk to my younger self, I’d tell him a lot of things I learned later in life but first and foremost, I’ll tell him this. You don’t have to defeat a monster in an epic battle; making someone smile is heroic too. You don’t need to be the ripped archetype in a spandex; hoodies look like capes too. You don’t have to swing off skyscrapers with style; heroes take the stairs too. You don’t have to do everything on your own; asking for help is courageous too. You don’t have to be flawless at everything; heroes make mistakes too. You don’t have to save the world; you just have to save someone’s day. On some days, that someone will be you. The ground rule still stands, kid, with great power comes great responsibility, but power can be understated too.
