I have a full length mirror on my closet door. Typically, I avoid it like the plague. However, that behavior does not fall in line with my resolution.
In order to love that woman in the mirror, I have to first face her in that mirror. Step one...I gave the mirror a good polish. My perception of myself is already distorted enough by my childhood, media portrayals of women, and my own lack of self-worth. I do not need the additional distortion of a dirty mirror.
If I am to love the woman in that mirror, let it be in a clear and true light. A simple step, but a necessary one on my journey.
My journey toward the fulfillment of this resolution continues...how are you doing on yours?
