Julie Gosh here, eager to share with you what I have been thinking about lately in terms of living WELL!
Now I don’t know about you, but I haven’t seen the movie Snow White in a really long time, and I can’t even tell you all the parts of the story. And I do remember clearly the part about the insecure Queen and her magic mirror. Do you remember?
“Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” Time after time the mirror answered that the Queen was the fairest of all. Until one day, when Snow White had turned 7, the mirror answered that Snow White was the fairest in the land. The Queen then becomes furious and sets out to kill Snow White…..and on goes the story.
So what is the relevance for us today? Why does this matter?
Let’s consider who or what we look to to prove us worthy, to prove us acceptable, to prove us good enough. What is your mirror? Who do you let define you? Do you need other people or your own physical mirror to give you your security?
Would you consider the possibility that you, right now, right here, are perfect? Lacking nothing. Whole. Complete. Amazing. Worthy. Powerful. Extraordinary!!!
You see, there are always going to be mirrors out there. There are always going to be other voices whispering in our ear, or shouting at you from billboards or song lyrics or magazines, or voices from your family, from people who don’t understand you or really see you.
You might be very strong in a secure identity today or you might be really searching for greater peace and contentment in who you are. No matter where you are at today, I encourage you to:
- Step back, take a few moments, and examine what voices you are listening to. Notice how you are responding to those messages, what meaning you are giving to them. If you want to make a list then do so. It would be revealing to list the messages you are buying into about yourself.
- Make a conscious decision today to believe that YOU are the one in charge of your life and your thoughts. You decide what messages are worth listening to. Be willing to accept that you are always “the fairest”, you are always off the charts freakin amazing! YOU REALLY ARE!
Until next time, make your day great, laugh hard and keep learning,
