There’s nowhere to run or hide when you look at yourself in a mirror.
Sure, I can walk away, look away, but I’m still there. It’s a bit like your FEET.You know they’re there. You walk all day with them, but you don’t really pay them any attention. You never sit and pull up a foot and look at it and pat and massage it and thank it … do you?
Well, it reminds me of the cursory glance we give each other. I put on makeup, my husband shaves, but I notice that we don’t notice ourselves. We’re just looking at the face. Try looking into your eyes….
Okay, doing that now, so I may as well stay and do this exercise. It’s actually the most honest appraisal I’ll ever get. There is only me, and I know what I’ve done, haven’t done, thought of, forgot, remembered, put off, did the best, did the least, pretended to do…. so, it’s me and me. And we’re not going anywhere 🙂
This is my time with me and I’m starting to treasure it, because I’m honest with her…. that women I’m getting to know.
In fact it’s amazing what comes out of my mouth lol.
First, I read the Gal in the Glass by Dale Wimbrow
Then, I appraise my day… honestly and fully.
The most important thing that’s happened is that I am kinder, gentler and more loving to myself than ever before. I see me. And I see the struggle or the win I’ve had that day. In context. And I love this girl in the glass more than ever. And I don’t have to wonder any more whether I’m going to make it. She and me, we have a pact.
And if you take a few minute to watch this… you’ll know for sure how important it is to make friends with that gal (or guy) you see every day.
