I use the mirror a lot. Lolsss. Almost everyone does, at least once every day. One day, while I was using it, it said to me, “Now let me tell you some things about myself.” Out of great curiosity, I paused to listen with my mind’s ‘ear’ what it had to say. Here are they:
1.The mirror has two major sides – the OPAQUE side (which I liken to as its ‘bad’ side), and the REFLECTING side. It’s this ‘dark’ side that makes the other side reflect a person’s true image; otherwise, it will be no good mirror. I hear people say often, “Hey, don’t dare me or you will see my other bad side.” Here‘s what the mirror has to say, “It’s my bad side that makes the other side of me reflect.” Hmmm! Likewise, ours, if there is any, should complement the other side and still make us reflect positively.
2.The mirror helps reveal the true selves of those who stand in front of it. We hardly know how we look unless we come close to the mirror. We are also to help those who come in contact with us see those great potentials that are hidden in them – not their flaws or weaknesses, but what is hidden that they can’t see on their own. When we point out their strengths to them, they, on their own, will begin to adjust and work on their weaknesses.
3.The mirror is a breakable object, but what marvels me is that even when it gets broken, every broken part of it still functions as a real mirror, and nothing less. It may lose its size, but not its character or quality (reflecting power). Circumstances and pressures may sometimes break us or reduce our size, but we should never allow them reduce our reflecting power or shining light.
Imagine a barbershop or a salon without a mirror. Same way, imagine this world without you and me. We are so special. Therefore, let’s reflect like a MIRROR and chase the darkness that brings with it fear and HORROR.
