“I believe there’s a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.” – Spider-Man 2
We all love a good superhero movie. The unique characters, suspenseful situations, and a place where good almost always overpowers evil give us hope. Hope that there is good in the world, and not only that, but that there are those who make doing good in the world their full time job and put that above everything else.
Deep inside each of us, there is this hero. It is important that we listen to it and nurture it but it often gets buried with the white noise of every day life.
This hero can be demonstrated in many ways. It could be the example of what a parent sacrifices for the better of their children. It could be the successful executive who realizes his true calling is to a life of service. Or it could be as simple as the person who routinely picks up trash on his evening beach walks, making the coastline cleaner for the rest of us.
However you decide to be a hero is significant, as those are the things that make life a little sweeter every day.
Serious inner hero aside, a fun and overt way to display our superhero fascination is with this Phillip Lim for Target Boom! sweatshirt. Playful and colorful, it is an easy throw on with skinny jeans and flats. I love it with leopard smoking slippers for an unexpected pairing.
