When was the last time you looked deeply at yourself in the mirror?
Not superficially just to check on your looks but seeing deep into your eyes being aware of what you see and what you want to see, looking at your nose, your very first important sense, the sense of smell, your mouth and what can words that comes out of it can make a difference to peoples life. Consciousley observing with care but no expectations. Looking with compassion and appreciation.
Watching yourself not caring about how others think about your looks but how comfortable you are in your skin, take time.
Start taking time and look deeper. Look into your eyes and see the fire, spirit, will, compassion, love for others and for yourself, search closely also for other things which have got a negative connotation although they are not really negative, then they also belong to humans and to life. Look for sadness, grief, anger, jealousy, envy. This is also you.
Watch yourself with care, awareness and embrace all you are. Change can only happen if you are aware of all sides of you, your strengths and your weaknesses. Don’t forget what seems to be a weakness for you happens to be a strength for your loved ones, your family, your friends and your community.
Loving yourself starts with accepting all you are. So be all you are, fearlessly :-)
