A Mirrored Image

Saturday, October 11, 2008

Well I did it today. I ordered a mirror. For years I have refused to have mirrors in my home. The only mirror in my home was in the bathroom (medicine chest). In the beginning of my introduction you all know that I could not even look in a mirror at myself. It was even hard for me to take pictures. Had I taken pictures in the beginning I probably would have been horrified earlier in life lol or had I looked at myself in the mirror more often I would have maybe seen the weight coming on. I know your probably all thinking I'm beating myself up and I should not be thinking in the way I am right now but that is just the way I am. You know we all do it, would have, should have, could have, but didn't. Anyway for a long time I have been hunting around and trying to find the perfect mirror to look at my image in. I have finally found one. I know some people would just say I should have just gone out and bought a mirror, not true for me. If I am going to be looking at myself the way other people are seeing me then I want to be looking at something that is beautiful. I just did not want any old mirror. I wanted something colorful with some character to it. So I got a mirror with some dark wood and stained glass flowers around it. I can't wait until it comes. Just where am I a going to hang it is another story or should I say blog (smile).
Update 10/16/08: The mirror arrived today. It took a lot of thought as to where I was going to put it. I had to have careful thought of where I wanted to see my image everyday. I decided to place the mirror at the bottom of my stairs of the first floor level of the house. This way before I leave the house I can see what I look like and when I come home I can see what kind of day I had lol. Now if I can just make the habit of looking in it and getting use to the image inside.

    You gave me goosebumps. That is truly a beautiful way to think of this whole thing. I hope that mirror reflects the true person you are and that you get to see who I see.

    Wanna know a cool secret?? I LOVE the mirrors that you can tilt (I hope that's what you got) as opposed to the ones you hang up, because tilting them a little away from you on the top slims your appearance ;) Is it cheating? Yeah. Do I care? Heck no!!! It works with full length mirrors from the store too, if you don't hang them and just lean them onto the wall ha ha. Enjoy your new image! :)

    I don't think you're beating yourself up, my friend, I simply believe you are doing some "self reflecting". (No pun intended.. LOL)
    As a matter of fact, you are one of my idols on here.... I bet you didn't know that, huh? Yeah, I hope to achieve what you have, and to be walking "in your shoes", one day.... I am soooo happy for you, I could bust!!!!

    "Great idea" about the mirror, too! Ooooooohh.....It sounds positively "GORGEOUS"! Along with your new body, you have achieved the key to self confidence, more self-esteem, optimism, and the realization of just how important YOU really are!! You are glowing so bright that I can feel the warmth in your writing.... and I am so proud of you!!!!

    Love... Julie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    WOW what a huge step you have taken. I am proud of you!!!
    Mirrors are a huge issue with me too.... I have a full size on in our master bathroom and I avoid it if possible....
    YOU inspire me and so maybe today I will take a 'real look' at myself and this will motivate me more.
    thanks for sharing and i await to hear where you hang yours :)
    God bless and thank you for your continued support on our Gods Prayer Warriors Team.
    Have a blessed Sunday my friend
