Mirror mirror on the wall
I never used to like mirrors. Standing in front of a mirror and staring at myself was one of the most uncomfortable things I have ever done. It was a mystery to me how some people can look at themselves in the mirror all day. One day the time came when I had to face myself. I stared at myself in the mirror for a long time. I didn't like where I was in life and that is what I saw. I somehow found the courage to speak to the person in the mirror and said "You are beautiful and we are going to change." Over time we did.
Last year everything was way too fast in my life, I was a blur. Slowing down this month brought me right back to the mirror. This time I began to smile as loved who I saw. I began to see all of the decades of me. The transformation that's happening is real and I am excited! I am finally excited about the unknowns in my life. The joy is in the mystery of not knowing and trusting God for His best.
I'm using the mirror to look back. What I am seeing astounds me because it is all beautiful.
