I’m not ready to look left … yet

Repost: February 11, 2016

My husband and I walk on Wednesday nights, at an indoor track, while our son attends Air Cadets.  Last night, while walking, I caught my reflection in the window as we finished our lap, I averted my eyes and said to my husband “I’m not ready to look left … yet”.  He then looked too and we both agreed that we have to do more walking before we are comfortable with our “reflections”.

But writing this post, I realized that I don’t own a full length mirror.  Nope.  Not in the washroom, bedroom or hallways.  (note: there is one in the work-out-room, I avoid that one).  Odd.  I used to own a full length mirror.  Two in fact.  One sat proudly in my bedroom and the other in the hallway of my first apartment.   I remember the feeling of being comfortable in my own skin, of purposely catching my profile each time I walked by the mirrors.  Not in vanity, no, but just to make sure I looked alright.  If I had those mirrors in my house today, I’d likely walk around them or most likely, turn them around.

This is a fun article about How to become comfortable in your own skin.

I’m thinking of buying a full length mirror for my front hall.  One that I have to walk by, many times a day.  My husband would like that, he has no problems stopping in front of the mirror and complimenting his reflection!  Maybe he read the article above.
