Reflections On A Mirror


Mirror. For some of us, that simple word evokes a multitude of emotions, anxieties, fears, and perhaps even a little shame. For others, it's just another fixture in our home, there for a quick glance to ensure that there are no stray hairs or rumpled clothing before heading out the door. But when was the last time you took a good, long, honest look in the mirror? As the end of the year approaches, we wanted to encourage you to take a look back - and within - yourself.

When you're able to see an undistorted picture where you are (self awareness), and where you've come from (witnessing progress), you then have a firm foundation to form a clear picture of where you want to be (goals). There are many wonderful reasons to look at that person in the mirror. You gain an honest understanding of yourself - the good, the bad, and the beautiful. You're able to honor and celebrate the progress you've made to date. No matter how hard or circuitous the path, you have made it to today. And we are proud of you.

From that place of awareness, you're able to learn from your mistakes and discover truths about your character and aspirations. You're able to set goals that are important to you, and track those goals as they become reality. Using the life experiences you've had, you're able to make good decisions that are based in reality, and that are useful to accomplishing your goals. This next year, let your unassuming household mirror be a reminder to honor yourself, your experiences, and be an inspiration for your year ahead.
