When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror? I mean really, truly connected with the person staring back at you. Did you smile back and say, “Hi there good-looking?” Or did you quickly turn away, uncomfortable with your reflection?
Today, while at the mirror, I decided to look deeper. I pushed past the gnarly white hairs and acne scars, and mined deep.
Truth is, I don’t like mirrors or cameras; I’m not one to post selfies.
Then again, I’ll catch my daughter connecting with her reflection: chatting away, high-fiving, and even blowing kisses at her mirror self.
So where did I go wrong? When did I lose my fierce self-confidence, or was it never fully developed?
