What you really reflect

What do you see when you look in the mirror?
How would you describe your reflection?

If you're seeing lumps of misshapen sagging flesh when you look in the mirror, the long-term solution is to use a different mirror.  Your physiognomy doesn't truly define you. Your character does.

The verb "to reflect" includes the definition "to think, to ponder."  When we reflect on a topic we consider it deeply and reverently.  We deserve to consider ourselves the same way, not just according to the shallow image offered by a material mirror.

The poignant video below puts true shape into proper perspective.

If you want to see what you what you're really like, look at yourself through the eyes of those who love you best.  You'll find out you shine with a beauty that never fades, but gets better with each passing day.
