#3: Mirror Mirror

Yesterday was Friday, which simply translates to TLC baby. Now, not to be confused, I’m referring to the channel Friends. I’m a fan of Say Yes To The Dress and was more than ecstatic to hear that Randy was launching his own show.

On the show there was a bride who was not satisfied with the way she looked. She was beautiful and petite yet when she looked in the mirror all she saw was an avalanche of huge hips. Despite what Randy or her family said, she was in the middle of a secret conversation with the mirror, and no one else could hear it.

For far to long we have given the mirror too much power. Don’t believe me?

Ever heard of Snow White?

A woman who has everything and is in charge of a whole kingdom, inquires of her mirrors opinion. Not satisfied with the results of the conversation, the infuriated Queen sets out to kill an innocent woman. May I repeat, all because of one conversation with a mirror.

Fast forward to 2012 and we are still talking to our mirrors. At times we love what we see but too often we hate whats looking back. The last time I checked there was no blue print for the “ideal woman/man” because it doesn’t exist. It’s a myth and one that has destroyed the lives of too many.

I have a big butt. I like my butt.

I’m short. There is only so much that heels can do.

I have nappy/kinky hair. I was born with it and I love it.

I have acne scars, not to fond of them, but they will go, but in the mean time I must celebrate me.

Don’t get me wrong, they are days where I feel frumpy but that is no reason to hate how I look.

Psalm 139:14-

” I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

God made me he knew what I was doing.

So join me friends and let us refrain ourselves from conversations with mirrors. They don’t give the best advice and it’s kinda weird to argue with inanimate objects don’t you think?

love you boys and gals
