“Mirror, mirror on the wall…”

When we look into the mirror, what do we see? Do we see our nose, eyes, mouth, forehead, cheeks, neck, chin, teeth and hair? Or do we see a happy face? Do we see a wrinkle, hint of a jowl, thinning hair and droopy eyelids? Or do we see a happy face?

When we look into the mirror, do we see our arms, legs, breasts, tummy, thighs, tush and hips? Or do we see a happy body? Do we see flab, folds, droopiness, cellulite, stretch marks and puckers? Or do we see a happy body?

When we look into the mirror, do we see negativity, neglect and nervousness? Or do we see purpose, potential and personality?

A close FOFriend told me today: “I’m not beautiful.  I’m slightly above average looking.”  Despite what she sees in the mirror, she is one of the most confident, sexy  and content women I know.

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

    Well… that’s a real awakening. Just today I went to have lash extensions put on. I am really sick of the thinning lashes I have. A few years ago they were full and thick and now they are thin and short. I can’t tell you the difference in my appearance. Yes, I guess I am vain. But I feel so much better than I did earlier today.
    I have always considered myself above average looking. Yet, always felt less confident than I should.
    Gaining and losing weight. Not a good idea. Stretches the skin. After a few years it doesn’t want to return to normal. Duh.
    I would love to be confident and content. How does one achieve that?

      How to achieve that confidence and contentment – well, it helps to have a sister like Geri in your life!
