Man in the Mirror


The fight!


Every morning you are forced to face with your worst enemy. You wake up and stare him/her right in the eyes. Maybe you notice this and maybe you don’t. There is no greater foe in your life then that person staring back at you every single morning.

That person in the mirror is your biggest fan and your hardest critic. You can never escape this person, they always seem to find away to stare you back in the eyes. You can never escape those judging eyes.

Don’t lie, you hate that person in the mirror most of the time. They make you always change your clothes, hair, etc. You may think it was a good day, till you look at the face in the mirror.  Those eyes disapproving all that you have done and not liking what you become.

The person in the mirror basically is a nag.  Always nagging on what you could have done better. The way you could have spoken when confronted. It’s every little thing this person in the mirror goes off on you about. Yet they never say a word, only giving you their cold hard stare.

Even I will admit, I hate that guy staring back at me from time to time. Lately, I do find myself staring back at this man in the mirror. Telling him how amazing my day was and all the things I done right. He just simply stares, but differently now. His eyes are no longer cold, but warm. Like, I did what was right today and should be proud of myself.

The lesson, to learn with the man in the mirror is love yourself. The only way to turn those ice-cold eyes to sunshine warm eyes is to do your best. Be proud of who you are and happy enough to face your every demon. The person staring back will always judge, but you need to prove it to those eyes and no one else.

Those eyes can drive you insane if you don’t step up and enjoy who you are. Yea, you’re not perfect, get over it! No one is. But you are you and there is no one else in the world that can claim that title. Some may try to be others, but when you try to be someone you aren’t, those eyes will say differently.

The man/woman in the mirror is your hardest judge. The only way to make them happy is for you to be happy and proud of yourself. Don’t live in self-doubt, learn from mistakes and move on.

Go home tonight and stare at those eyes, tell him/her what you did today. Say it loud and with pride! Let them see all the great and bad things. Be honest, cause if you aren’t honest those eyes become ice. Embrace the man in the mirror and learn everything he can teach you.

Embracing the man in the mirror is key to surviving in this Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!
