Mirror Mirror

The Universe is so clever! Due to recent events I have been forced to take a good look at who I am. Not who I was as a child, a wife or a young mother. The person I see in my mirror right now is someone I really love!

I not only love that person, I like the face looking back at me. That being is loving, generous, caring, grateful and an all weather good friend. It took years of determination to mold the current person I see in my mirror. I am very proud that I have taken every opportunity to do just that. It's been a long hard struggle, but worth every once of effort.

Have you ever loved someone, but you just don't like the things they do, say and think? Funny isn't it that they just fall away from you when you have moved past them. It is almost as if they are afraid that being in your positive company will somehow also change who they are. On the way up to where I am today I have experienced people who have displayed that kind of fear. Now I see the universal humor as I wave and say goodbye to them. Perhaps someday we will reconnect, but maybe not in this lifetime.

The air where I now reside is pure and fresh. The current souls in my life are positive, inquiring, eager to share what they too have learned and most importantly spiritually accepting. Their egos have been dropped by the wayside and they see every experience as an opportunity to expand.

Mirror mirror on the wall who is the most loving person of all?

You are of course, no matter what anyone else says!!


  1. *smiles happily back at Barbara*

  2. LOVE IT!!! I just have to figure out who I am. Not easy.

  3. So glad Berna and happy to have your comment on the blog space. Sometimes I wonder if anyone is reading what I write.

    It is hard for a woman to know who she is when she has young children. It is easy to get sucked up into the energy of others. I hope you don't have to wait as long as I did to find yourself!!

  4. This is beautiful, Barbara. It does take time and conscious awareness to truly learn to love ourselves. I'm still the lessons present themselves it is up to me to stand up and treat myself with love and caring.

    Thank you for being the wonderful friend that you are beauteous inside and out!

  5. You are right Cindy,it is work that is never finished because we will always be given more challenges. Perhaps they are there to help others as well as ourselves learn to love?
