lookinginto the mirror

When you discover who you really are it’s a profound reality check to the way we look at ourselves and to others. As we attempt to go on living from the Truth, it’s the way we can relate to ourselves and others that changes us at the most internal level. Feel the Truth, and find out how the discovery of unconditional love will affect you personally.


The time will come

when, with elation,

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror,

and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life….Derek Walcott

“The moment will arrive when you are comfortable with who you are, and what you are– bald or old or fat or poor, successful or struggling- when you don’t feel the need to apologize for anything or to deny anything. To be comfortable in your own skin is the beginning of strength.” …Charles B. Handy

    As we get older my dear it’s never been so important to understand that we end where we begin.
