The catch all #5 or the art of cleaning the bathroom mirror.

Ever wake up and realize that you are not the person you were a few days ago? A few months ago? Or even a few years ago? I had one of those moments this morning as I was stepping out of the shower, I wiped the steam from the mirror and I had one of the epiphical moments when a voice at the back my mind said "what happened?" I looked in the bathroom mirror and realized that the "me" I was so proud of being has been obscured, by the negativity and brashness of others or by stressful situations. Like the way my reflection was hazy in the mirror, in the same manner I had become convoluted. And in the same manner I need to reach up and wipe away the negative influence of others.
Once I came to this realization, I started to see how it has poisoned every area of my life, my relationship with my significant other, or with my family & friends.
I was very upset with myself and promised myself to make the mirror clean again. And that is the promise I make to everyone.
Maybe you need to do the same? You need to wipe the residue from the reflecting glass of your soul. We all have some and every now again we catch a glimpse of ourselves in it. But what you have to realize, like I did, is that one must simply reach up and wipe it all away from the glass. It maybe easy for some but not others, but either way it's worth it
