What's to see?

               Mirror, Mirror ......

DAY 24

What's to see?

Just the light!

This morning when I got up and looked in the mirror, for one dreadful split nano-second, there she was 'the wicked witch of the west' glowering back at me.  And boy didn't she need Botox.

Then I remembered we all see what we expect to see!  But wicked witch of the west? Perhaps it's not a good idea to drag yourself to the mirror in the cold light of dawn, especially when your mind's just getting back into gear.

Our physical eyes see what they've been indoctrinated to see, based on thoughts of not being good enough in some way or another.   Negative thoughts drag us down in seconds flat setting the pattern for the rest of the day. 

We all need to look beyond what seems to be real, but is actually an illusion. Look beyond last night's lines, bags and sags and recognise just what a marvel of creation you are. We are all light beingsx


  1. So very true. Looked at myself this morning, saw only the bags under my eyes. Why do we always see only the negative? Beautifully and lightly put.

    1. thanks Daphne. Its so difficult to see beyond the illusion especially first thing when the colds still snapping my heels

  2. "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest on them all?" Well, Gillian, of course!1
