The Reflection in the Mirror Now & Then
By: Emmy Barnett 04/03/2013
Looking at my reflection in the mirror was something I didn’t like to do
Because I did not like what was staring back at me.
I saw ugly
I saw a loser
I saw weakness
I saw shame
I saw fear
I saw pain
I saw a fatty
I saw hate
I saw darkness
I saw unworthy
I saw sadness
I saw a distant light
It gave me courage to change what I saw in the broken mirror
I no longer saw a broken image
No longer did I see weakness
I saw and felt the strength inside me
There was pain, hurt, guilt & shame in my darkness but as the light shined brighter
I became a fighter
I continue to see how brave I was and no longer do I need fear the darkness
It doesn't serve me it robs from me.
I value myself
I am a Warrior
Today I saw my reflection in the mirror
Today I saw love, beauty, intelligence, courage, fearless, a fighter, protector, warrior, a winner and someone worthy of all that is good.
Today I felt all I saw!
It's been a rough month and half but I know I am worth all I am about to push myself to do. I am 100% ready to keep pushing on my journey.
