Who am I? I AM ME!
Life will never be the same, there I was walking along the beach taking note of the sun streaming down upon the water and dancing upon the crest of the waves. I could feel the sand creeping between my toes and thought to myself why is it that the ocean conjures up so much emotion in me.
Have you ever caught a glimpse of yourself in a puddle, the reflection is always different than when you look in a mirror ,somehow all the imperfections disappear and what you see is the real you ,the image of how other people see you. I suppose we as human beings are so intent and critical of ourselves we fail to notice the projection that we send to the world.
Fifteen years ago , I was involved in a serious car crash and suffered multiple injuries including facial lacerations. When I look in the mirror all that stares back at me is the scarring and to me that is all that others see too. Looking in a puddle ,there are no scars and that is how others see me.
When I look down over my body I see fat and how I long for a slim firm body, but, looking in that puddle there is no fat just a slim body walking tall and straight, the body that I have always longed for is there , in that puddle, for all the world to see.
Why do we as human beings beat ourselves up, When are we going to realize that what we perceive to be is in the mind, who we are and what we look like is in the eyes of the beholder.
It took me such a long time to learn this, and now, what I try to do is project the inner me, that way,not only do I feel more confident but I know that that is what everyone else sees. They don't see the scars nor the shape of my body, just me, I like this idea a lot. No more do I wear baggy clothes or a paper bag over my head I AM ME and I cant say anymore about that.
