Mirror, Mirror On The Wall...Feb 08, 2021
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
It is not a trick question.
Of course, you see a reflection of yourself. If it is a bad hair day, you see a person with bad hair; If you had a bad night’s sleep, you see a person with a tired wrinkled face; If you are happy and glowing (inside), you see a glowing, happy face in the mirror etc… you get the point.
Now; what do you see when you look at the world?
This might feel like a trick question; but still not.
… The answer is: You see a reflection of yourself?
What? Yes, you heard!
You see a reflection of yourself when you look at the outside world.
‘What you see’ isn’t ‘what you get’, as the saying goes. Instead, what you see is who you (are being) at that moment in time.
So, when you look at the outside world you see a reflection of yourself and your thoughts at that moment in time. Of course, you know that your thoughts lead to your feelings; which lead to your actions and behaviours and therefore a certain outcome.
Who are you being today and what are you seeing? Are you happy with what you are seeing? If you are not happy, who do you want to be and what do you want to see?
I will leave you with that thought, until next time…
