When I look in the mirror even the most little of blemishes can be seen. Freckles galore and eyebrows that need waxed. I used to stand in front of the mirror before a shower and just look at myself through my eyes. I wanted to look so hard and so long that when I did stop looking I would be happy with what I saw. This became a regular exercise about two years ago. I learned that I actually like my body despite what was being said to me. Through commercials or ex lovers. The things they said have no merit because I have eyes of my own, you see. Eyes that only see the beauty in everything not the flaws. And even when I do uncover the flaws they transform into something beautiful to me. I felt human and for once I belonged. To share this message. To do this exercise daily. I am like the mirror. I reflect back to you what you need to know about yourself. I forever will remain in the mirror to show myself I am perfect just the way I am. When something changes on my body I do not beat myself up. I take it in so much so that I become my body. I am a copilot on this journey. I really believe we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and we only get this one body, we must be in it for a reason. At first I couldn’t believe I was in this body but after truly looking at myself I realized it was foolish to think otherwise. Take care of yourself while in the mirror. It is a reflection deeper than imagined. Really take the time to stand there, boldly naked, and really take a deeper look into what it is that is you. Look yourself straight in the eyes and know that you are divine in nature. It is our potential we seek. To bloom into the woman or man you are meant to be while listening to your body. It is you and you are beautiful and perfect just the way you are.
