Reflections – What do you see
What does your reflection look like? And do you care? Is it your image that you see. Is it your actions that you notice. Do you have the ability – to see your own uniqueness and beauty.
About 10 years or so ago, my children were playing travel soccer, I would go to the games and cheer them on. One day however, I went to watch a game where I was not emotionally attached to any player, and noticed how the parents were acting while cheering on their children. It was not a pretty site, and after a moment, a harsh reality hit me – I look the same way while cheering on my own children and team. In my mind I thought that I was being supportive, encouraging the children to do their best, and overly enthusiastically applauding their successes. It was toooooo much and, It was my first real glimpse into my own internal awareness.
As we move through life we sometimes live in our own head, and we lose the awareness of not only how we are in this world, but of our own true self. How do we really live and interact with those around us. Who are we deep in our core.
So my challenge for you today dear readers, is to start looking within, start paying attention to those automatic reactions, and habits. Start asking yourself why. Why am I doing what I’m doing. Do my action serve myself or others – simply – just start noticing.
Just a thought –
