Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered who the person was that was looking back at you?
Sometimes when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror I don’t think anything of it, but other times it can seem like a stranger looking back at me. Yes, it still looks like me, but a much older version of me! It sometimes feels like a whole chunk of my life has gone missing, and that I’ve suddenly aged by 10/15 years!
It’s strange isn’t it, as I obviously see my reflection in the mirror every day, yet sometimes I don’t recognise my own reflection! Before you say it, my eyesight is fine – yes, I need glasses for reading, but otherwise my eyesight is absolutely fine.
The daft thing is, while the current mirror image of me sometimes seems unrecognisable to me, it’s the inner me from years ago I no longer recognise! I sometimes look back and wonder “what was I thinking” about my clothes, hairstyles, actions and my words, but realise then that if it hadn’t been for all those situations and events in my past, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
Yes, in another 10/15 years, I’m sure my mirror image will be very different again, but I also hope the inner me is also different, as I’m so very aware of so many things that I need could do so much better, especially when it comes to my words and my actions!
How about you, how’s your mirror image?
