Mirror, mirror…

Soooo… you’re walking down the street — maybe you’re in Atlantic City — and suddenly you walk up on one of those mirrors.  You know the ones — they make you look way fat or too skinny, and the one that makes you look really tall and twisted out of shape, and out of sorts. You hang in front of them and look at your shapes and you giggle at how that novelty mirror distorts your image and then you mosey on down the street and keep having fun.Then…  some person comes up to you and says words to you that do the same type of distortion to your image that those mirrors did, but you take them seriously and you believe their reflection is true. Then maybe you start to question yourself and doubt your validity… and maybe even start to believe that you are the distorted image they described.

Mirrors come in all forms.

Know thyself, and know thy mirror so you’ll know when a reflection is distorted and not to be taken seriously.  There are a lot of flawed mirrors out there, and only one true you ;-)  Choose your mirrors wisely, and reflect on that!

Have an awesome day, my friend.

Kelvin Ringold

Born to John and Lora Ringold on October 24, 1953, grew up, went to school, graduated high school and joined the Air Force -- turned 18 in basic training. Did 20 years in the Air Force and retired in 1991. Moved to Syracuse, worked at University Hospital and retired from there at 55. During that 55 years... I learned some lessons, one of which is that LIFE is what we make it. I spend a major portion of my waking hours helping other people figure out the same thing. Life is what we make of it, and... "when you master your mindset, you master your life." That's my mission: living it, and teaching it.
