What do you see when you look in the mirror?

. . .

SnapDragon sees a mom, a teacher, an artist. She sees an increasing amount of wiry, silver hairs. She sees green eyes that read, and wander, and dream. She sees an impossibly hopeful soul.

. . .

Your turn, Dear Reader! We want to hear from you!

  1. This might sound like Iโ€™ve missed the point of the question, but I see me. When I think about what I mean by that, itโ€™s that I want my story to write itself whilst I live, both the good and bad.

    I happened to have been coincidentally talking to my wife about mirrors yesterday. We agreed that I almost never use them ๐Ÿ˜…

  2. I see a fluffy mane of curls I’ve learned to love. Some pimples and scars, surrounding eyes full of hope. I didn’t always love myself the way I do now, but I accept the woman in the mirror and the effort she makes to be better every day. I want the world to be a kinder place, and in my effort to be kind to others, I first try to be kind to myself.

    Thank you for a thought provoking question of the day!

  3. Whether doing a ‘mirror of the mind’ meditation or literally looking in the mirror, I see a reflection. And I try to see myself becoming the change that I want to see in the world. If there’s a blemish or a crow’s foot that catches the spotlight of my attention, I try to embrace the apparent imperfection with a gentle kindness. In the reflective trying, there is a letting go of the smoke and mirrors, if you’ll pardon the pun. Ari

  4. When I look in the mirror, sometimes I see someone who is tired yet wide awake with the creative possibilities that await. Other times I appear more youthful than others. I see someone still unsure yet optimistic about the outcome of her endeavors. It rarely seems like one of those same-day different BS kinds of expressions. I see experience, pain, joy, surprise. I see life when I look in the mirror.

  5. I see a shell of the person I was a few years ago. I see someone who is tired – physically, spiritually and emotionally. I see a person smiling on the outside, while slowly crumbling on the inside.

  6. Hey Snap – Strange thing – I just wrote a post about people acting like mirrors – how we should show each other the same care and attention we do ourselves in the mirror. What do I see? I see myself – A person worthy of love – but I also see everyone else – my parents, friends, strangers, millions of other people, generations long since passed staring back at me. Look for long enough and it feels like it is nothing but a stranger staring back. Wishing you well Snap ๐Ÿ™
