It wasn’t that long ago, 5 years to be precise, that I would still look in the mirror and see Myself. I could see and recognize that Person. I knew who she was. Where she was going. What she was doing. I knew her.
Now all I see is a Stranger.
The fact of the matter is that this person has taken over during these past 4+ years and I really didn’t even notice. I was too busy to look in the mirror anymore. And when I did have the time, when I could have taken a sneak peek, I didn’t want to see. I felt a transformation taking place. Allow me to correct that. A Huge Sudden Jolt changed me and my life instantly and from that moment on, it has only been getting worse. That is, the Transformation. I didn’t want to see this Person. I didn’t know this person. I didn’t want to know this person. And now, Today, I looked in the Mirror and this Person is all I saw.
I guess the first step is Acknowledgment and Realization. I’ve done that. Now, what would the next step be? How do I get ME back?
This may sound a bit vain, but when I saw that Stranger in the Mirror, she looks much older, worn, tired, worse for wear than I was. This person didn’t have a Twinkle in her eye. This person didn’t look Strong, Confident, Ready for whatever comes her way.
Let me know if you find someone who matches any of those qualities I have described, that may just be Me.
