Powerful: completing a physical task, a race, a long bike ride, etc
Powerless: Being stuck at an airport three thousand miles away from where I need to be with a cancelled flight.

After coming up with these though, I have two others:
What makes me feel powerful? Pregnancy
What makes me feel powerless? Pregnancy

Really, it's kind of amazing what I'm doing, but in a sense I don't feel I am doing it. I am a meat machine optimized to an incredible task but my mind, what I usually term my "self" is not so much involved. I keep making plans and then my body says "no". I've found I can do two of three things: gestate, digest, and anything else. If I try to do more, I pay the price.

Alright, enough for this digression. Just on my mind!
