Living Deliberately: What Do You See In The Mirror?

What do you see when you looked in the mirror every morning? Do you even stop for awhile to acknowledge the person looking back at you? If you do, do you like that person? Does he/she smile back at you or you see a grumpy person right in your face?

Everyone looks into the mirror quite automatically to see how they look in their clothes or if their hair is properly combed or if they have food stuck in their teeth or simply to adjust some malfunction in their appearance. However, you may not realize what you see in the mirror is not only your reflection looking back at you but it is also the reflection of your inner state of being. The mirror very often reflects the emotions that you have repressed. When you are not well-adjusted in the inside, it is difficult to be satisfied with what you see on the outside. You see, you can’t be negative and positive at the same time. Your emotions will somehow betray you.

To look good in your own eyes starts by feeling good on the inside and not the other way round as some would like to have you think. If you have an internal turmoil within you, whatever you see in the mirror upsets you despite others assuring you otherwise. No matter how well-groomed you are, you will always find a flaw somewhere. The rest of the day becomes a downward spiral robbing you of a fruitful day and subsequently a fruitful happy life in the long run.

Rather than wasting your time constantly feeling dissatisfied over what you see, try asking yourself how you can treat yourself better in order to heal the turmoil that is rocking your inner balance. Each person has their own reasons for their repressed emotions. Finding the answers and making the efforts towards healing yourself is an important step in living deliberately. Your immediate purpose is to be honest with yourself and respect yourself in order to find out how to treat yourself better.

While you undergo your healing process, enhance it by practising self-love – eating healthily and exercising regularly. Look after yourself the best you can and you will not have unnecessary reason to dislike what you see. You will regain your self-esteem and notice the person in the mirror smiling back at you with growing confidence. To boot, you will most definitely smile back at the person in the mirror.
