Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 136 – The Mirror Lies

Taking my son to a rally in support of music programs at the Beaverton School District board meeting. We’re going to let the administration know that we don’t think music is the place to make cuts. 


When we want to know how we look, most of us go to the mirror.

But the mirror lies. It only shows us one reflection. If you really want to see how you look, look at the people around you.

Look at your spouse. Is he or she glad to see you in the morning?

Look at your family. Are they happy and successful?

Look at your neighbors. Do they say hello and stop to talk?

Look at your co-workers. Do they come to you for help?

Look at the people you meet. Do you meet new people every day?

The people and things that surround you are a reflection of you. Every word and action, everything not said or not done, defines you.

If you don’t like what you see, change it. Starting now. Start giving your time to everyone in your life.

Then take another look.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!

  1. Eric this is so profound and gives each of us a way to move into a new direction if we don’t like the reflection we see. Thank you for sharing this wonderful thought provoking post!
