Mirror, mirror


On the wall…Who is this person? Do I know her?

Oh so many things come to mind when I'm looking in the mirror. I suppose the time of day has a lot to do with how one feels, & well, sometimes looking in the mirror is just the wrong thing to do!

At night when I take my make up off, & look in the mirror I think to myself…..you've had a great day, & you look ready to go to bed!

During the day, I look in the mirror, & think well, you're ok, it could be better, but it could be a whole lot worse too!

In the morning, well that's a whole different story! Admittedly, I have no idea who that woman is staring back at me. She isn't violent, or nasty. But she doesn't smile either. She tries, but she seems a little draggy, disheveled, & slow! Who could that be? It certainly couldn't be me! No way, I've never been slow, draggy, or even disheveled. I've always been energetic, ready for the day to start, & eager to conquer whatever life throws at me!

After a short 20 minutes or so, that strange woman seems to be picking up speed. She moves a little faster, thinks a little more quickly, & drinks a big glass of water. I think that water must symbolize the start of her day, because right away she brushes her teeth, washes her face, gets dressed, puts her running shoes on, grabs the dogs leash, & flies out the front door with the dog in tow!

Now we're cookin'! This is the Karen I know….this is me! I recognize that person in the mirror now!

It's all good! I would never want to go back in time, I've paid my dues, & love who I am, & where I am in life. I can't change a thing, & I wouldn't change a thing.

All the things I've gone through have made me who I am…quirky, interesting, fun loving, compassionate, sometimes witty, sometimes not so much, & let's not forget "Artsie Fartsie!" I am who I am, & I've learned to love myself, to make fun of myself, appreciate my life, & bow to the light within myself!

Life is good, & I know that person in the mirror! She's me!
