Reflections, Thoughts, and Others: Oh My!

Reflections, Thoughts, and Others: Oh My!

I caught myself the other day doing it.
I do it all the time.

.
At home
While window shopping
Before I leave my house
After I get out of the shower

.

I’m always catching a glance just to see what’s there.
It’s my friend, Refection.
.

My reflection catches my attention constantly.
sometimes good – sometimes not so good
.

I wonder why I’m always checking it.
It’s as if something changed in the last 30 minutes that might blow my whole cover.
.
What cover, you ask?
Oh –  the one that says to the world that I love what I see.

.

Truth is … many of us don’t love what we see.
We’ve believed the lies that we’re too fat or too tall or short.

.
We’ve allowed perfected images from the media to tell us what our nose should look like when it’s time to get rid of the lines around our eyes
how big or small our breasts should be
how much we should weigh

.

Sometimes we feel confused.

.

I think we’re confused because we are getting our reflections all mixed up.
We aren’t even aware of all of the reflections we receive – but still they come.

.

The reflection mentioned above is our most common one:
The Mirror.

.
We look at the mirror and make a judgment about whether we like what we see that day or not.
.
We tell our subconscious mind about our weaknesses and then walk away.
.

What if we decided that what we see in the mirror is perfect?
What if we celebrated all of our uniqueness and chose to shower love on ourselves?
.
What if we looked into the mirror
butt naked
no make up
and exclaimed with full belief:

PERFECT!  I’m simply PERFECT!!

.
Try it!
It’s true.
You are perfectly and uniquely create to be YOU.

.
Remind yourself on a daily basis and you will start to believe it deep down in your heart.

.

Second, we receive reflections from others.

 

The parent who doesn’t or didn’t approve.
The spouse who’s always looking for something else.
The jealous neighbor who puts us down simply to raise herself up.
.

We often make the mistake of letting others tell us what we truly are.
We believe the reflection we get back from them while forgetting that they too, are simply human beings who are works in progress.
.

We must rise above their weaknesses too.
We must recognize that their reflection is misinformed – at best.
We must make a choice to believe that we, and only we, are the ones who determine the truth of who we are.
.

 

Third, we receive the reflection from our subconscious minds.

.

Our friends, the neurons, think they are helping us.
See, the brain is slow to recognize that we no longer live in caves.
It’s busy trying to keep us safe so it remembers everything in the past that was scary or less than ideal.
It’s not so great at remembering all the wonderful, positive, moments.

.

We must always be aware when thoughts pop into our minds and moods show up
that diminish our greatness.

.

And yes – you were created with greatness!!
You mustn’t allow your old neuron patterns to convince you of anything else.

.

You’re safe.
You’re magnificent.
You’re just perfect that way you are!

.

Does that mean that it’s wrong to want to improve an aspect of our lives,
our health
or our relationships?

.

Not at all.

.

It simply means we can leave the judgment aside
Enjoy our reflection
Move forward with power and joy.

.

Go ahead.
Look in the mirror!

.

Say it: I’m just Perfect!
