The Mirror as a Tool

Sometimes the hardest person to face is the one in the mirror, but when we see ourselves clearly we can not only better accept reality, but we can use the insight into our blemishes as well as our strengths in order to find our way forward. As those qualities change with time, both positive and negative, it is important to take some time to reflect on where we are at as humans. I’m not as good at somethings as I was twenty years ago, but I also know I’ve grown and am way better at other things over that same time frame. We change, we grow, we shrink, we contort to new realities and our perception of ourselves needs to be current in order to best meet the shifting challenges in life . Don’t be afraid of mirrors. When you get stuck or frustrated, start with a frank look in the mirror. Reality wins every time in spite of our perceived identity.
