I gave birth to an idea, but just like with all births the art of conception has to first start with the thought to conceive. In order for me to impregnate my thought process and bring to light a new being in mind, body and spirit, I had to first understand reflection. I had to reflect on where I had been in my life and where I was trying to get to. I had to take a long look at the man in the mirror and learn to take responsibility for my own misfortunes. As I stared at the man in the mirror I realized I really didn’t like the person I had become. I was inconsiderate, arrogant, conceited, egotistical, a womanizer, and I had no idea what love was. How could I?
I didn’t even love myself enough to change all the things that were my own demise for so many years. The reflection I saw in the mirror staring back at me was not the man that my mom had birthed, and raised ,and instilled good morals and values. So who is the man in the mirror? For so many years I had not a clue as to who I was because I was what everybody needed me to be. I wore so many masks that when all the masks were peeled off and all the layers were stripped away, I was unrecognizable.
The man in the mirror is my personal reflection on my life and my constant everyday desire to change into a more productive citizen in society. Micheal Jackson’s Man in the mirror words had a serious impact on my decision to change my thinking, my desire to live, and my thirst for knowledge of who I truly am. I had to stop blaming everyone and everything and look at the root of the problem, which was me. “If you wanna make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make that change.” Reflect on all the things that have plagued your life. Take a good look at your reflection and ask yourself do you like the reflection that stares back at you. Change is a process that dose not happen overnight. Impregnate your thought process with new thoughts, and bring to life a new mind, body, and spirit. If I can take a moment to reflect you can too!!
