    Mirror mirror, on the wall
    Will I ever reach my goal
    Oh Ivor, ” don’t be tired and fall
    You can still hold your pen, and scrawl”

    Ohhhm and Amen!
    May be the others ARE already our mirror?
    We absorb vibrations and can only give back what is in us.

  5. Timely, as always. I have a verse that I’ve repeated to myself since childhood (and for some reason, I can only quote it in a condensed King James Version!) “Pride goeth before a fall.” It usually presents itself when I am focused on someone else’s weaknesses at the expense of failing to see my own. I love your disclaimer at the end, also – being honest with ourselves is not unkind – it’s the only way to truly grow. Hugs, Colleen – you are a wise woman!

    Oh so true, Colleen. I agree. Still, I’m going to take your question as hypothetical. I’m sure you don’t REALLY want to know my ugly. Even I have to look at it with one eye kind of squinting! 🙂

  8. Self compassion is so important – truthfulness without kindness is not the right way.

    Some would say that we cannot recognize in others what we haven’t experienced within ourselves.
    Others say for every finger I point towards the other person there are three fingers pointing towards myself.
    A good reflection Colleen 😉

  10. Truth. A lot of those words would be on my mirror, too.
