Have you ever looked in the mirror and you don’t recognize the person looking back at you. I’m not talking about physically, but mentally you just don’t recognize this person? I can be honest and tell you I have. I didn’t recognize the pain in my face from trying to please everyone around me, I didn’t recognize the hunch forming on my back for trying to shrink myself for others, I didn’t recognize the nonchalant stare that made me look like I had given up hope. But here I was looking at myself wondering who I was. I think people assume when you talk about reinventing yourself you are being fake. That is not the case. If there is something about you, you don’t like, why not put forth the effort to fall in love/like with you again.
This journey called life isn’t easy. We get on a path and conform to where it leads us, forgetting that some of our paths are not meant to be straight, we are met to hit curves, bumps in the roads, detours. We are going to be uncomfortable. Like being stuck in a traffic jam and you can’t get over, you can’t go around it, you have to go through it. Once on the other side you feel like a whole new person because now you can get where you were trying to go. Do you feel like that with your life. Stuck in a traffic jam, you’ve become complacent with who you are right now and you don’t see a way around it, over it and you are barely pushing through? It’s okay hottie, I can tell you a majority of the people you encounter every day feel like this, although they will never be brave enough to admit it.
I dare you to look at yourself in the mirror past the physical and see yourself. Is there something you want to change. Nothing’s wrong with a little re-invention to be who you are destined to be on the next level of this journey. Here’s to the new you!
