Looking in the Mirror

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall.”

As I read over my previous posts and reflect, I see a person who is ever evolving to a better self. I see myself in the moment when I wrote different posts-what I was experiencing and how I felt. Sometimes the reflection and the revelation expose aspects that I want to get rid of and remind me that I need to put more attention to that certain area.

I do not reflect to regret but to see progress made and progress desired. When I take a true look at myself in the mirror, it is be honest with myself. There are times when it is painful to see areas that you know have influenced wrong choices, etc. However, the best part of the mirror experience is knowing that you can change things.

The mirror experience is best used to see where you are, where you’ve been and where you are going. I am one who refuses to live in regret. So, when I see that coming on, I choose to review the experience with the fact that I did the best I could in that given situation. Regret is an emotion that has to be monitored carefully so that you do not end up in a destructive place.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, you do have purpose after all.

The course I take when I choose to view is always to make a better you.

Through times when it is pain I see, I know that I don’t have to be

In a place that lingers that pain, but a choice to make for further gain.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, you do have purpose after all.
