Day 9: Mirror


on the other side is where it is



Today I learn that a mirror is present in front of me.
And, since I thought it will be very embarrassing, I promptly close my eyes in a milisecond.

If I open these eyes, will I see myself? Will the image be crystal clear?

*feeling unbearably silly for agonizing this over and over this whole day*

This mirror in front of me, I hope it will show me myself. Myself. Myself. Myself. I want it clear. Crystal clear.
I want to touch my fingers on the mirror. I want myself to be reflected with no distortion. I want myself to be there, in the mirror, unbiased.
I want to see me. All the good, all the bad, all the smile, all the frown, all of me, I want to find it, I want to see it.

Let's say that I am so desperate to see it, I am so want to see the image of myself.
Let's say that I am standing in front of the mirror, but still, there is one more cliff to jump to.

Let's say that a little courage is all I need to jump.
Let's say that I am a courageous person.
Then what was I worrying for?
What was I afraid of?
Why did I feel this chill creep up my back?

The mirror is there, at the other side of the cliff.
At the other side of my fear.

And so I gather my will, and jump.

I am Enneagram type 7 with ENTP, highly imaginative, lots of flight of ideas, yield many hobbies and skills, and unsurprisingly extraordinary. Yes, why do people even bother to define themselves as ordinary while every soul is downright created as extraordinary? :p
