There’s something about the mirror.

March 21st, 2015, 1am

I believe mirrors are something more than mere physical objects. Maybe we’re the ones giving them such dimension, but staring at them & ourselves in the process always stirs up something on us. In my case, it was the momentary feeling of peace with myself. I don’t know if any of you ever experienced this, but from time to time staring at myself at the mirror, on a quiet moment, when the world around you seems to stand still while you’re still as well… and you lean towards the mirror, fixing your gaze onto your own eyes… you feel at peace with everything. In a fraction of a second, all your past deeds & mishaps flash through your mind, together with all your accomplishments and finally with the true perception of where you are and how well everything turned out. At that moment, you can’t help but look to you, let go of any tension you might have been hold on to, and say to yourself very softly but very honestly: “I’m happy how everything turned out. I’m proud of myself.”.
