Step up to the mirror -
What do you see? Who do you see? What do you hear? What are you telling yourself?
Let’s go Inside the Mirror and explore, discover, polish, scrub and play away any and each of those negative
thoughts and feelings to help you see beyond the surface, beyond the chatter to see deep down who you are, who
you want to be – your True Reflection.
Many phrases may come to mind: ‘You just wouldn’t understand,’ ‘You haven’t walked in my shoes.’ Well, let
me assure you I have been there, I have walked those miles, seen firsthand and really do understand. I have
walked along a rut that had gotten so deep I couldn’t see forward, searching in the dark for purpose and meaning
in life, being where I didn’t want to be, seeing no escape and completely forgotten who I was. Life had been
lived without being present, always fretting about what happened yesterday and worrying about what is going to
happen tomorrow. My reflection was tarnished and cloudy. I saw nothing beyond the image in front of me.
Don’t get me wrong, my life has been a good one. I have many, many, many things I continually give thanks for.
There was just something missing and I didn’t know what. There is no secret ingredient, exercise, incantation or
magic chicken. It came down to looking deep inside, listening to what my body was trying to tell me, looking honestly,
openly, and sometimes painfully at what I was continually telling myself before I could start to see my True Reflection.
If you can relate, or know exactly what I’m talking about – and you’re ready for a change and want to do something
about it; you have come to the right place.
We start with a thought (this is the hardest part – putting the issue into words) then we play with it, twist it,
turn it, believe and disbelieve it, open and close it, dress it up and dress it down, until we come out on the other
side with a much lighter load, straighter direction, and defined purpose.
We have fun, we PLAY, we do not WORK it out. Work has become my new four letter word that I am eliminating from my
vocabulary. Think of this as Perpetually Learning About Yourself – PLAY.
