The Reflection in the Mirror Now & Then

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

The Reflection in the Mirror Now & Then

Looking at my reflection in the mirror was something I didnít like to do
Because I did not like what was staring back at me.
I saw ugly
I saw a loser
I saw weakness
I saw shame
I saw fear
I saw pain
I saw a fatty
I saw hate
I saw darkness
I saw unworthy
I saw sadness

Something happened
I saw a distant light
It gave me courage to change what I saw in the broken mirror
I no longer saw a broken image
No longer did I see weakness
I saw and felt the strength inside me
There was pain, hurt, & shame in my darkness but as the light shined brighter
I became a fighter
I saw how brave I was and no longer do I fear the darkness
I value myself

Today I saw my reflection in the mirror
Today I saw love, beauty, intelligence, courage, fearless, a winner and someone worthy of all
Today I felt all I saw!

    I am learning that the way I see myself, and the way I choose to be happy in and outside- reflect what I want when I look in the mirror nowadays. This really IS a lot more about our minds/emotions than food. Great post!

    Thanks for posting! We have to remember that courage it takes to battle the bulge and realize the courageous person looking back at your and NOT the impections we think we see!

    I got goose bumps reading this. I hope everyone can have a mirror like your "new' one
