Beauty, is it in the eyes of the beholder or the mirror?

You wake up and the first thing you do is go into the bathroom and reach for the toothbrush.

You know I mean after you spend thirty minutes Instagrammin or Facebookin.

Before you put toothpaste on the brush, you take a quick glance in the mirror.

That quick glance turns into a long gaze as you notice every blemish on your face through your mucus encrusted eyes.

You splash water on your face, dig the gunk out of your eyes, only to come to the realization that the blemishes are still there.

Now you're stuck attempting to gain the approval of the mirror.

“Magic mirror, on the wall - who is the fairest one of all?” You repeat that mentally every time you pass a mirror and you feel obligated to ask the question.

What's the point?

First, those blemishes are only noticed by you because you perceive them to be there. We don't notice them or better yet, they're not there.  You're beautiful but you don't believe that because the mirror hasn't told you yet.

Public Service Announcement:

The mirror will never tell you that. The beholder in the cliché' is you. You only need the mirror to make sure the toothpaste is off your chin and not on your shirt.

You're never going to gain the favor of the mirror if you don't control what you see.

If what's behind your eyes never believes that you're perfect you will never be perfect.

Understand the mirror confirms whatever you tell it to confirm. Tell yourself you're losing weight, really believe it, then look into the mirror and I guarantee the mirror will oblige.


When you look into the mirror you are met with a barrage of flaws. You are so critical of yourself. The world is not as important as we want it to be. I know it may be difficult but let the world see and feel your inner glow. That makeup actually hides your true beauty.
