I stared hard at the mirror, studying my well-shaped eyebrows. I smiled, I frowned – I did all sorts of things. Like widening my mouth to expose my teeth. I saw all my flaws and my only spectator was my twenty-four month old son.
Why was I doing that? You may wonder. I was doing a bit of soul-searching. During my ‘man in the mirror moment,’ all sorts of thoughts went through my head.
I have been hurt.
I have hurt other people (unknowingly!)
I have been fearful!
Others have robbed me of things.
I saw a fairly pretty woman (believe me I had to make serious effort)
I saw a kind-hearted woman.
I saw a lover.
I saw a wife.
I saw a mother.
I saw a friend.
I saw a woman who wanted to change the world in her own little way.
And then I saw other people as well.
My husband (I love him! even when he refuses to take out the trash!)
Friends, bloggers, writers, (even some of my characters crept in)
I saw the homeless, the orphans, the rich, the Queen, and I zoomed in.
And I saw myself.
And then the song of Michael Jackson slowly fills my mind ( I love his music!)
”I’m starting with the man in the mirror,
telling him to make a change!”
What about you? What do you see when you look in the mirror…
I love you guys, let’s all make a change!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
