    When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see?

    Putting aside the typical my nose is too big, or I wish I was taller.  I am talking about the things that you have done, the choices you have made, the person that you are from the inside out.  Does that reflection hold an image that you are ultimately proud of?

    Every time that i look my self in the mirror..i say loudly ''Thank you God" .I feel so lucky because I have made so many things in my life and so many things happed in my life bad or good and still i look so happy healthy in my age.I feel that if i had a option to change something in my life ,I would not change a thing. Of course i dont think that i am the minority, it should be many people who feel like me.

      To live without remorse is a fantastic thing and I do hope that you are not in the minority.

    I feel like I would change many things about what I have done...  (Looking back with wiser hindsight) except...  except if I changed anything in the past I would not be here now.  Now is so good--  so shouldn't I embrace those past mistakes and learn from them? 

    As for the mirror thing, I like what I see except for when I have to look in the mirror really early in the morning;)

      Agreed, there can be valuable lessons in mistakes.  And as for those morning reflections, half the time I am without contacts and can't see anyway - probably a good thing!

    Every time I look into the mirror, I say to myself - it is another great day to look forward.

    With that, I earn a day of joy with my family members.

      That is a very positive outlook and probably one that serves you well.

    When I look in the proverbial mirror I see one who has made mistakes, one who has not done things he should have, one who has triumphed on occasion, one who has wasted signifcant time, one has accomplished significant things, one who loves and is loved... To summarize I see a roller coaster ride; chalk-full-of peaks and valleys and now that I am 26 for the 2nd time, I am beginning to see two in the mirror; me and Him.
    NOTE: I do not suffer from Disassociative Identity Disorder(DID)...

      Mine has at times been a roller coaster ride as well, but looking back I always seem to emerge from those more turbulent times all the wiser so I suppose they do serve a purpose.

    I am fatty, So every time  when I see my picture in mirror I think from next day I will work hard to make my body slim. But Next day I forgot all things. This is the sad part of my image but Happy part is I thank to god for give me a good health.

      Excercise can at times be a chore and one that is often pushed behind other things that are more pressing, but good health is a gift to be grateful for.

    I see my looks, criticize them. That's all I do, thanklessness. Plus, that's natural, when one does something bad, they stand in front of the mirror and feel very guilty that they can't even stand their reflection. So yea, I've been there too.
