Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound … we know you’ve got one. What’s your 2011 superpower?

For those of you going what the what … stop. Think about it for a moment: what have you learned that you can do better than anyone you know this year? What can you do that no one else can? Don’t be shy!

I’m not being shy at all, I really don’t think I’m doing anything that’s terribly different than anyone else. I think that I’m pretty funny and I make people in my life laugh, but being funny definitely isn’t unique to me. So, alas – no superpower.

If your life was a television show, what would its theme song be? What music would be cued at the start of the show or when you entered a scene?

Think about this past year. Is there a song that you’ve heard that has really struck a chord, one that has spoken to you? Maybe there’s a song that goes along with your one word for 2011. Maybe there is a song that you’ve heard that instantly cheers you up or makes you think of a special moment that happened this year?

My favorite, favorite song is Télépopmusik’s Breathe. It remains the song that can stop me dead in my tracks or instantly make me feel happy inside. It’s a song I love so much that I try to limit the amount of times I listen to it because it makes me breathless with happiness. Seriously. Breathe is a good underlying theme for this year. Remembering to take those small moments and just be in them. To be present, happy and to live out loud.

“I brought you some something close to me /And left with something new / I can see through your head / You haunt my dreams / But theres nothing to do but believe /Just believe / Just breathe / Another day”
